Interventions in organizational and community context: A framework for building evidence on dissemination and implementation in health services research

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Mendel, P., L.S. Meredith, Michael Schoenbaum, C.D. Sherbourne, and K.B. Wells. 2008. "Interventions in organizational and community context: A framework for building evidence on dissemination and implementation in health services research." Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research, 35(1-2): 21-37.

The effective dissemination and implementation of evidence-based health interventions within community settings is an important cornerstone to expanding the availability of quality health and mental health services. Yet it has proven a challenging task for both research and community stakeholders. This paper presents the current framework developed by the UCLA/RAND NIMH Center to address this research-to-practice gap by: (1) providing a theoretically-grounded understanding of the multi-layered nature of community and healthcare contexts and the mechanisms by which new practices and programs diffuse within these settings; (2) distinguishing among key components of the diffusion process-including contextual factors, adoption, implementation, and sustainment of interventions-showing how evaluation of each is necessary to explain the course of dissemination and outcomes for individual and organizational stakeholders; (3) facilitating the identification of new strategies for adapting, disseminating, and implementing relatively complex, evidence-based healthcare and improvement interventions, particularly using a community-based, participatory approach; and (4) enhancing the ability to meaningfully generalize findings across varied interventions and settings to build an evidence base on successful dissemination and implementation strategies.
