This short course provides an overview of two common implementation frameworks used in grant proposals, RE-AIM (the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance Framework) and CFIR (the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research), and how the CFIR framework, combined with ERIC (Expert Recommendations for Implementing Change) strategies, can be used in planning for protocol implementation or problem solving. You will learn what these frameworks are, when to use them, and how to best integrate them into a grant proposal or ongoing study.
After completing the course, you will be able to:
Describe two common frameworks used for assessing implementation and dissemination of interventions in research
Justify the choice of framework for use in a research study
Apply the frameworks to different types of studies in a grant proposal
