This implementation stages tool was adapted by CES, with permission, from the work of the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) in the USA. It outlines the four stages of implementation in the Active Implementation Framework and provides examples of key activities at each stage. It also provides a template for stakeholders to analyse their own progress on the key activities suggested, as well as additional ones identified specifically for their policy or programme. This tool will be useful for policymakers, service providers and practitioners involved at any stage of the implementation process.
This tool for promoting ongoing improvement was adapted by CES, with permission, from the 2015 work of Allison Metz and colleagues at the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) in the USA. The tool asks seven questions which help to think through the process of generating sustained improvement at later stages of implementation. This tool can be reused periodically to generate continuous improvement cycles. It will be particularly useful for service providers, practitioners and implementation teams of policies and programmes that have already been established.
