The individual(s) has deficits related to survival, well-being, or personal fulfillment, which will be addressed by implementation and/or delivery of the innovation.

Aims, wishes, and needs are important to assess for all constituents (Breimaier et al., 2015) (see also Process: Assessing Needs), and the level of awareness of recipient and deliverer needs is an important implementation determinant (Dy et al., 2015; Godbee et al., 2020). Within healthcare delivery settings, consideration of patient needs must be integral to any implementation that seeks to improve patient outcomes (Institute of Medicine, 2001).

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.
