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 Facilitator's Guide provides good background information and easy-to-use lesson plans that maximize the use of the Storytelling PowerBook. The developer can provide customized training and technical assistance on request. Helpful resources and implementation tips are provided on the program Web site. Multiple tools are available to support quality assurance.
Little guidance is provided for planning and preparing for implementation. It is unclear how some individual materials fit into the overall implementation process. Trainings have occurred infrequently over the past 10 years. Little guidance is provided on administering quality assurance measures and using the resulting data to improve program delivery.
