Evaluation Approaches for Dissemination and Implementation Research

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on evaluation issues and approaches to assessing dissemination and implementation (D&I) research. An important take-home point is that evaluation should be considered an ongoing process, rather than a one-time, post hoc activity. After a brief overview of the scope of evaluation activities relevant to D&I, several key evaluation approaches are reviewed, including their unique foci and contributions. The chapter focuses most heavily on the RE-AIM model, including discussion of its evolution and status, followed by an exemplary case study applying RE-AIM to a translational project. Finally, it summarizes the status of current research/practice and future directions in D&I-related evaluation.

Keywords: D&I research; dissemination and implementation; RE-AIM model
