Layout and configuration of space and other tangible material features support functional performance of the Inner Setting.
Layout and configuration of space and other tangible material features can support or hinder functional performance of the Inner Setting (Ashok et al., 2018; Dy et al., 2015).
Qualitative coding guidelines that are aligned with the Updated CFIR will be added in the future.
Regarding quantitative measurement of this construct: In a systematic review of quantitative measures related to implementation, Dorsey et al. identified 13 measures (Dorsey et al., 2021). Using PAPERS criteria of measurement quality with an aggregate scale ranging from -9 to +36 (Lewis, Mettert, Stanick, et al., 2021), four (30.77%) of the measures could not be scored and scores for the remaining measures ranged from -2 to +6. Themes within the measures included objective descriptors physical infrastructure. Results indicate the need for continued development of high-quality measures.
As we become aware of measures, we will post them here. Please contact us with updates.
