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.
Create a logic model/diagram to identify the most important constructs for your study
Explore D&I models
Part 1 of the Fogarty International Center's toolkit centers around methods and frameworks and has the following key feature:
An Implementation Science Methodologies and Frameworks page that describes tools to frame research using validated implementation science methodologies and frameworks.
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:
a RE-AIM description
a checklist of questions for planning an intervention
a guide to starting to use RE-AIM with prompts to complete
Guidance on using RE-AIM across study plans.
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:
QUERI Action Framework description along with initiatives.
a multi-purpose QUERI Implementation Roadmap roadmap
Frameworks and models of implementation research are explained on their D&I Frameworks, Theories, and Models page.
University of Colorado Adult & Child Consortium for Health Outcomes Research & Delivery Science (ACCORDS D&I Program)
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:
A frameworks page that lists articles of different implementation frameworks and designs.
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
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.
