incorporating into routineImplementation

Incorporating an innovation into routine practice. Implementation ideally includes a range of strategies designed to address individual, organizational, and systemic characteristics (e.g., skills training, administrative buy-in, and policy changes).

1. Dissemination is not implementation
2. Successful implementation of complex clinical practices takes 2-4 years
3. Training alone is never enough
4. Fidelity to evidence-based practices affects client outcomes
