Senior Research Scientist
Oregon Social Learning Center

Lisa Saldana joined Oregon Social Learning Center in 2007. She received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2003 with a research and clinical emphasis in child maltreatment and evidence-based practice (EBP). She has been active in the development, evaluation, and implementation of EBPs, with a particular emphasis in services for child welfare populations. Dr. Saldana currently is the PI of a number of federally funded projects related to implementation in child serving systems. Building on her previous work with the Stages of Implementation Completion (SIC) measure, she and the SIC team are extending the instrument into the Sustainment Phase of the implementation process. Similarly, the SIC team has developed the Cost of Implementing New Strategies (COINS) tool for assessing implementation costs across the three phases of implementation.
