This review, conducted in three days by AcademyHealth’s Translation and Dissemination Institute, found evidence that supports the use of interventions such as site-based parent education programs, home visits, and concurrent treatment for substance abuse and parenting skills to mitigate the effects of adverse childhood experiences among children.

This rapid evidence review is part of an AcademyHealth series that seeks to pilot innovative approaches to quickly, but rigorously identify and communicate evidence to inform public and private decision-making. The series examines questions relevant to building a Culture of Health, the current focus of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the project’s funder.
