Review of evidence of what makes for successful implementation of evidence based interventions

Funded by the Department for Education (CWRC)

Background and aims

There is a wealth of evidence on implementing a wide range of evidence based interventions from across the UK, USA, Australia and Scandinavia, and a new literature on implementation science is now developing. This review would draw together the evidence and develop common themes on the barriers and facilitators to implementing evidence-based interventions. It would also explore experiences of implementing a number of specific programmes currently being piloted in England from countries where implementation is already ongoing. It would therefore form the basis for guidelines concerning the basic principles to be followed in implementing evidence based programmes per se as well as providing indicators of issues to be addressed in implementing a number of specific programmes.
