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 implementation materials are well organized and tabbed for easy access. Both initial and follow-up trainings are offered to implementers. The high, medium, and low fidelity compliance options contained on the fidelity tool are outstanding and allow the rater to record with more specificity how closely each aspect of the program matches the original model. The evaluation protocol is comprehensive and includes process and outcome measures.
Little information on training content is provided. Implementers who wish to use many of the instruments must contact the various instrument developers directly for approval.
