Implementation Resources - november Picks

Classic Literature: Implementation Research – A synthesis of the literature
Although this resource is over a decade old and there is newer research available on almost every topic, it is a great place to go for an overview of the components and complexities of implementation.

This article presents a measure to assess implementation intentions – the individual decision to adopt or not adopt an evidence-based program/innovation. What’s great about this article is that the proposed measure is very feasible to use in real implementation projects – it’s a simple 3 item measure (see Table 6).
