“…….Evidence suggests that a carefully planned and well-resourced implementation is key to better outcomes and programme success. Across disciplines, implementation researchers have devised a number of frameworks that can be used to encourage the best practice in implementation and greatest fidelity to the original programme.
This report brings together the latest international thinking about the key issues relating to the implementation of evidence-based programmes, utilising both published work and expert opinion.
The aim is to provide a summary of issues that should be considered and planned for by those about to start implementing a new programme in order to increase the chances of success; to draw attention to sources of further information; and to share lessons that have been learned by others when implementing similar programmes.
The research consisted of a literature review undertaken initially using snowballing techniques following the identification of key experts in the field. This was followed by a systematic search of electronic databases for previous reviews of implementation studies. For the second section of the report, electronic database searches were carried out for published academic papers relating to the MST, FFT, MTFC, and KEEP programmes.
