There are guides and descriptions for each stage of research that can help researchers design their studies. Key features include: 

  • An easy-to-use guide to determine which of the many theories, models, and frameworks available works best for your specific project, as seen to the right

The D&I Models Webtool is an interactive, online resource designed to help researchers and practitioners navigate D&I Models through planning, selecting, combining, adapting, using, and linking to measures. 

Part 1 of the Fogarty International Center's toolkit centers around methods and frameworks and has the following key feature:

The RE-AIM Framework was developed to enhance public health efforts in research translation. This website features tools to get started using RE-AIM such as:

This website is made specifically for individuals considering using CFIR to evaluate an existing program or study. Visit the Constructs page to find detailed descriptions of domains with a rationale for inclusion in CFIR

The VA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative Implementation Guide describes a new comprehensive framework for assessing research impacts, especially for implementation and quality improvement initiatives. It has the following key features:

Frameworks and models of implementation research are explained on their D&I Frameworks, Theories, and Models page.

The ACCORDS D&I navigation guide seeks to enable and equip researchers to close the gap between research and practice in the health field. It contains the follow key feature:

This site was created to explain and support the EPIS Framework and provides resources for using EPIS including measures and tools (e.g., worksheets, guides). 

  • The EPIS Framework highlights key phases that guide and describe the implementation process

The Practical, Robust Implementation and Sustainability Model (PRISM) is an implementation science framework that considers the multilevel and dynamic interactions between the evidence-based intervention, the perspective and characteristics of diverse recipients, the implementation and sustainability infrastructure, and the external environment. The iPRISM Webtool can be used to iteratively apply an implementation science framework across a project’s lifespan By answering a series of questions, the tool will guide you to identify strategies to optimize the fit of a program within a given context, and will provide a personalized report with responses and an action plan to strengthen a given program.

Frameworks & Models

Implementation frameworks and models can provide important guidance in the design and execution of implementation efforts and research. Implementation frameworks are graphical or narrative representations of factors influencing implementation. There are different types of frameworks, including process frameworks, determinant frameworks, and outcome frameworks. Below are compiled resources for more information on implementation frameworks and models, including how to select a framework for your needs.
