In this global world, many Evidence Supported Interventions (ESI’s) developed in one country are transported to many others. With a successive increase in the number of imported ESI’s, there are several empirical examples of failures of outcome studies to replicate some ESIs’ original benefits. The chapter describes possible reasons of these failures, such as differences in research design, cultural adaptations, and differences in service systems. The authors review the The Planned Intervention Adaptation (PIA) Protocol to guide cultural adaptation of ESI’s and reviews contextual variables that may promote a successful ESI transfer. Finally, the chapter suggests how to include culture in intervention outcome studies, particularly effectiveness trials of imported interventions.

Keywords:   Empirically Supported Interventions, evidence-based practice, evidence translation, cultural adaptation, implementation, Planned Intervention Adaptation (PIA)
