Improving and sustaining successful public health interventions relies increasingly on the ability to identify the key components of an intervention that are effective, to identify for whom the intervention is effective, and to identify under what conditions the intervention is effective. The published literature includes a plethora of reports about interventions that have successful outcomes. A limited number of studies, however, disentangle the factors that ensure successful outcomes… Expand

Theory-Driven Process Evaluation of the SHINE Trial Using a Program Impact Pathway Approach
TLDR
The SHINE PIP is presented including definitions and measurements of key mediating domains, and the implications of this approach for randomized trials are discussed. Expand
Theoretical approaches to process evaluations of complex interventions in health care: a systematic scoping review protocol
TLDR
The objective of the systematic scoping review described herein is to provide an overview and analysis of theoretical approaches suitable for the planning and conducting of process evaluations of complex interventions in health care. Expand
Process evaluation: the new miracle ingredient in public health research?
Good evaluation practice in public health research has become equated with the inclusion of a mixed-methods ‘process evaluation’ alongside an ‘outcome evaluation’ to gather data on how and whyExpand
Using implementation science theories and frameworks in global health
TLDR
This article defines four models of causation used in implementation science: intervention theory, frameworks, middle-range theory and grand theory, and explains how scientists apply these models for three main implementation studies: fidelity assessment, process evaluation and complex evaluation. Expand
Pragmatic, formative process evaluations of complex interventions and why we need more of them
TLDR
guidance on process evaluations by the Medical Research Council's (MRC's) Population Health Sciences Research Network (PHSRN) marks a significant advance in the evaluation of complex public health interventions and encourages further theoretical and practical exploration of formative process evaluation. Expand
Protocol for the Process Evaluation of a Complex, Statewide Intervention to Reduce Salt Intake in Victoria, Australia
TLDR
This project presents the detailed protocol for a process evaluation of a statewide strategy to lower salt intake in Victoria, Australia, and describes the pragmatic methods used to collect and analyse data on six process evaluation dimensions: reach, dose or adoption, fidelity, effectiveness, context and cost. Expand
Protocol for a process evaluation of a cluster randomised controlled trial to improve management of multimorbidity in general practice: the 3D study
TLDR
The 3D (dimensions of health, drugs and depression) study will recruit 32 general practices to a cluster randomised controlled trial to evaluate effectiveness of a patient-centred intervention to understand how and why the intervention was effective or ineffective and the effect of context. Expand
Methods for Translating Evidence-Based Behavioral Interventions for Health-Disparity Communities
TLDR
The methods focus on how to incorporate adaptations so that programs fit new community contexts, meet the needs of individuals in health-disparity populations, capitalize on scientific evidence, and use and build community assets and resources. Expand
Conceptualizing, Implementing, and Monitoring a Structural Health Promotion Intervention in an Organizational Setting
This article presents a framework for developing and carrying out an implementation monitoring plan of a complex structural intervention in an organizational setting and describes seven steps forExpand
A six-step protocol to systematic process evaluation of multicomponent cluster-randomised health promoting interventions illustrated by the Boost study.
TLDR
A six-step protocol was developed that ensures systematic assessment of the implementation processes that are crucial for interpretation of intervention effects and was readily applicable for planning process evaluation of environmental and educational intervention components in a school setting.
