Module 1 Summary

Active Implementation Frameworks
•    Usable Innovations
•    Implementations Stages
•    Implementation Drivers
•    Implementation Teams
•    Improvement Cycles

This concludes Module 1. In summary, students cannot benefit from services they do not receive.  Active Implementation promotes the full and effective use of evidence-based programs and evidence-informed innovations so that student outcomes are improved.

Key Takeaways

  1. Active Implementation is guided by five frameworks:
    • Usable Innovations
    • Implementations Stages
    • Implementation Drivers
    • Implementation Teams
    • Improvement Cycles
  2. Conducting stage-appropriate implementation activities is necessary for successful service and systems change.
  3. Developing core implementation components results in an implementation infrastructure that supports competent and sustainable use of innovations.
  4. Creating Implementation Teams that actively work to support the implementation of innovations results in more efficient, higher-quality implementation.
  5. Connecting policy to practice can help reduce systems’ barriers to sustainable, high-fidelity practice.

Working together, these Active Implementation Frameworks provide the foundation for putting evidence-based programs and evidence-informed innovations into practice.
