Development and Validation of a Measure of Organizational Readiness (Motivation x Capacity) for Implementation
Despite the availability of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) for cancer control, EBI implementation and scale up remains a challenge. Implementation science aims to identify and understand factors that influence implementation success so that they can be addressed to improve outcomes. Unfortunately, gaps in measurement are a major barrier to improving understanding of such factors and developing strategies to address them.
Together with the University of Texas Health Sciences Center and the University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health, we are developing a theoretically-informed, pragmatic, reliable and valid measure of organizational readiness that can be used across settings and topic areas, by researchers and practitioners alike, to increase and enhance implementation of cancer control interventions. This builds off of previous work we have done developing the Readiness Diagnostic Scale.
