We are excited to announce that Blueprints has launched an upgraded website, with support from Arnold Ventures, in order to fulfill our mission of promoting interventions that work.
Check out our more mobile-friendly and accessible website here.
As you explore the site, you will see much of the same information is still presented. For example, we provide information on how to search for interventions that have been certified by Blueprints.
We also still include (but have made more explicit) our standards and review process.
New to the site, however, is an expanded classification system that provides information on interventions reviewed but lacking strong evidence – a feature made possible by funding from Arnold Ventures. As such, Blueprints now offers information on a continuum of evidence, from having no credible evaluations to having inconclusive evidence, to having very strong experimental evidence. In addition, the registry identifies interventions with strong experimental evidence of harmful or no effects. Much of this information can be found here.
Thus, in addition to promoting evidence of effective interventions, Blueprints now advocates for the elimination of ineffective and iatrogenic interventions. We are also helping to reduce confusion and increase transparency of our review process by providing a database of interventions that were not certified as a result of inconclusive or insufficient evidence.
We are in the process of developing a webinar presentation on the utilization and navigation of the upgraded Blueprints website. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about the webinar, including dates and times.
As always, thank you for your continued interest in and support of Blueprints.
