Assessing Needs: Innovation Recipients

Collect information about the priorities, preferences, and needs of recipients to guide implementation and delivery of the innovation.

Assessing recipient needs facilitates patient-centered care and patient safety culture within healthcare delivery (Nieva & Sorra, 2003) and is included in implementation process frameworks, e.g., Getting to Outcomes (Wandersman et al., 2000).

Qualitative coding guidelines that are aligned with the Updated CFIR will be added in the future.

As we become aware of measures, we will post them here. Please contact us with updates.
