The goal of this project is to support the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) in identifying barriers and facilitators to implementation of Consensus Treatment Plans (CTPs) across various health care settings. Phase one of this project involves qualitative research with providers and other stakeholders towards the development of a comprehensive research plan related to the implementation of CTPs. The next phase of activities will use Implementation Mapping to develop and test implementation strategies to increase adoption and use of CTPs in CARRA registry sites.
Salud en Mis Manos (SEMM) is an evidence-based community health worker (CHW) delivered breast and cervical (B&C) education and navigation program for vulnerable Latinas. To support safety-net clinic implementation and maintenance of SEMM, we used Implementation Mapping (ImpM) to develop the SEMM-Dissemination and Implementation Assistance (SEMM-DIA) implementation strategy. SEMM-DIA is an implementation support system that includes a set of implementation strategies to facilitate program implementation and maintenance.
