“Scientific inquiry” demands more than speculation – a clearly stated theory that generates predictions (if … then) and testable hypotheses. There are multiple implementation frameworks that could serve as a source of predictions (if-then) and hypotheses (explanations of if-then relationships).
The depth and breadth of expanded knowledge has been expressed in unique implementation frameworks developed in given fields within human services and in other fields. The frameworks are reviewed and synthesized.
An annotated summary of predictions that define implementation science and inform implementation theory. A guide for research and practice.
Implementation science has been recognized as a missing link in the science to service chain. As a result, knowledge about evidence-based implementation has grown. The depth and breadth of expanded knowledge has been expressed in unique implementation frameworks.
This monograph reports the findings from a review of the science of implementation and identifies what it will take to transmit innovative programs and practices to human services. The monograph also summarizes findings from the review of the research literature on implementation and proposes frameworks for understanding effective implementation processes
