Readiness for Dissemination Ratings by Criteria (0.0-4.0 scale)
External reviewers independently evaluate the intervention's Readiness for Dissemination
using three criteria:
- Availability of implementation materials
- Availability of training and support resources
- Availability of quality assurance procedures
For more information about these criteria and the meaning of the ratings, see Readiness for Dissemination.
Training and Support
The program uses best-practice materials from a variety of expert resources targeted to this specific population. Some training materials are provided for topic areas relevant to the intervention. A client satisfaction survey and a standardized therapeutic community fidelity measure are provided to support quality assurance.
The program materials are specific to one implementation site and may not be easily adapted or transferred to other implementation sites. The relationship between the submitted program materials is unclear. While implementation, program goals, and recommendations for staffing are addressed in some of the materials, the guidance across these materials is inconsistent. No support resources specific to the program and its implementation are provided. The connection between the quality assurance measures provided and the program model is unclear. Materials state that one implementation site was engaged in external quality reviews, but no standards or protocols for evaluation or quality assessment are provided.
