Readiness for Dissemination Ratings by Criteria (0.0-4.0 scale)
External reviewers independently evaluate the intervention's Readiness for Dissemination
using three criteria:
- Availability of implementation materials
- Availability of training and support resources
- Availability of quality assurance procedures
For more information about these criteria and the meaning of the ratings, see Readiness for Dissemination.
Training and Support
Manuals provided to support implementation are detailed and speak to a critical need for a program of this type. Training is available upon request. Scripts and worksheets included in the implementation materials could support quality assurance.
Implementation materials include outdated research and are generally difficult to navigate. No materials beyond the submitted implementation manuals are available to support formal training. The level of technical assistance available from the developer is unknown. No organized quality assurance protocol is provided to support implementation fidelity or client outcome monitoring.
