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
Available materials provide information on implementation, such as how to organize a group. Personalized training is available for interested group leaders. A fidelity checklist and participant survey are available to support quality assurance.
While some general minimum requirements are listed for group leaders, it is unclear whether DTR groups could be implemented by any dually diagnosed individual without training and support. Training is not required, and supplemental information on DTR group facilitation is not available to assist implementers who choose not to take the training. Materials do not explain how the fidelity checklist and participant survey are integrated into a quality assurance process or how information derived from these instruments are to be used to improve implementation.
