Health-related interventions are often implemented in dynamic and diverse contexts. This section offers key concepts and resources to support researchers/practitioners’ efforts to successfully implement complex interventions. Pragmatic tools can be tailored to your project(s). This information is helpful starting in the early phase of the research process, and toward implementation and sustainment.
CIs meet most of the following conditions:
(Content Under Construction)
Structural or procedural goals of the intervention, informed by theory/framework, and fostering a mechanism of change
Tailored actions (e.g., steps, procedures, implementation strategies) tailored to local contexts and aligned to meet each Core Function
On this page, you can find various tools to help you operationalize and apply the concepts of Functions and Forms in your project. The first tool is a fillable matrix that you can use to map your interventions’ needs, core functions, and forms with study team members and partners (e.g., patients). The second tool is an aligned interview guide to dive deeper into these areas, and the last tool is an Excel tracking tool that you can use with study participants or partners on an ongoing basis (e.g., coaching calls) to identify changes in their priorities (core functions), and adaptations to the intervention’s forms over time.
