Implementing a social network intervention: can the context for its workability be created? A quasiethnographic study
J. Ellis , I. Vassilev, E. James and A. Rogers - October 27, 2020
Policy makers and researchers recognise the challenges of implementing evidence-based interventions into routine practice. The process of implementation is particularly complex in local community environments. In such settings, the dynamic nature of the wider contextual factors needs to be considered in addition to capturing interactions between the type of intervention and the site of implementation throughout the process. This study sought to examine how networks and network formation influence the implementation of a self-management support intervention in a community setting.
