New Article

This manuscript explores the functions and forms framework, which facilitates an understanding of the mechanism by which specific steps and activities are taken to achieve an intended structural and procedural goal in response to a system or patient need, is not only appropriate as a roadmap for adaptation, implementation, and evaluation efforts, but could be used as an actual methodology for determining mechanism and facilitating adaptation, itself.
