Introduction to Implementation Toolkits

(View Complete Item Description)

An implementation toolkit provides the resources or guidance needed to execute a new practice, program, or intervention. This Toolkit, developed by the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC), acts as an introduction to the concept of a toolkit and implementation science by explaining the structure, function and purpose of a toolkit's sections through the example of a toolkit itself. Its various subsections reference additional toolkits created by CalSWEC for public human service agencies and their stakeholders in California. If you are beginning a new intervention or program, these materials will assist in structuring your work so that you systematically define the intervention, communicate about it, and evaluate it. You can use the templates to create your own Implementation Toolkit.
