Quantitative Data

There is no known, complete set of quantitative measures for CFIR constructs. However, several research groups are in the process of developing quantitative CFIR measures or mapping the CFIR to other instruments.

A few individual constructs do have listed measures in addition to the sources listed on this page.

We will post quantitative measures as they become available. If you know of a measure, please contact us

Developed by Gustafson et al. in 2003, the OCM instrument is a 60-item survey with 15 domains. Each OCM survey item was mapped to a CFIR construct by a small group of researchers, experienced with the CFIR and/or the OCM. A manuscript is in development.

Developed by Helfrich et al. in 2009, the ORCA instrument is a 74-item survey with three domains (Evidence, Context, and Facilitation). Each ORCA survey item was mapped to a CFIR construct. A manuscript is in development.

The SIRC is in process identifying measurement instruments and mapping them to the CFIR and an outcomes framework; over 400 instruments have been identified and the SIRC is evaluating each instrument. Check the SIRC site regularly for updates.
