Frameworks and Models
On this page, you will find helpful tools and information on theoretical frameworks for implementation and improvement sciences.
Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR)
- For individuals considering using the CFIR to evaluate an implementation or design an implementation study, visit this site for more information.
- The ISRN aims to accelerate the development and dissemination of interprofessional improvement science in a systems context across mutliple sites and employs the CFIR to guide their research.
- Led by Laura J. Damschroder and Dr. Teresa Damush, this presentation includes an introduction to the CFIR and application of the framework in research settings.
Facilitating Adoption of Best Practices (FAB)
- “The capacity for change, receptivity of involved interventions, and the extent to which using that intervention will be expected, rewarded, and supported by an organization”
- What it is:
- Key predictor regarding the consistency and quality of organizational members’ use of a specific innovation.
- Strategic focus and is innovation-specific.
- Requires collection of multi-dimensional perceptual data from expected innovation users.
- Implementation Climate
- Includes description and rational for inclusion of Implementation Climate.

Practical, Robust, Implementation and Sustainability Model (PRISM)
Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARiHS)
- The NCCMT is one of six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health in Canada. Their summary of the PARiHS framework is broken down into an easy to view table.
- Led by Dr. Philip M. Ullrich, this presentation includes of a breakdown of the PARiHS framework and an example on using the framework for an implementation project.

Organizational Readiness for Implementing Change (ORIC)
- “Shared psychological state in which organizational members feel committed to implementing an organizational change and confident in their collective abilities to do so”
- What it is:
- Organizational members’ change commitment (determination to implement change) and change efficacy (ability) to implement organizational change
- Varies as a function of how much organizational member’s value the change and how they value three key determinants of implementation capability: task demands, resource availability, and situational factors.
- Multilevel construct: Readiness can be present at the individual, unit, group, department, or organizational level.

A Theory of Organizational Readiness for Change
- Gabriel Szulanski defines the popular concept of stickiness and its operationalization, providing a roadmap for understanding and further researching this topical issue.
- This article includes a case study on how sticky knowledge influences the transfer of knowledge from a source to a recipient.
Reach Effectiveness Adoption Implementation Maintenance (RE-AIM)
Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF)
- Thematic Series on the Theoretical Domains Framework
- This article describes the TDF, provides a brief critique of the framework, and introduces theories of behavior change.
- Systematic Approach using TDF
Simon French discusses in this article documentation of the development and use of the Theoretical Domains Framework to advance the science of implementation research.
