Green Book

Approaches to implementation - Chapter 3.2

Using an implementation framework

Key points

  • Using a framework can make implementing preventive care activities easier and more successful.
  • Which of the relevant frameworks you choose will depend on your situation and goals.
  • Understanding behaviour and behaviour change is a component of many frameworks and a key part of successful implementation.

The Green Book brings together two main themes: prevention and implementation.

Both of these sit within QI and are inherently associated with behaviour change.

Any implementation frameworks or associated strategies you adopt should be realistic, feasible, transparent and congruent with the goals and philosophy of the practice and practice team.66–70

Table 1 compares some of the relevant theories and frameworks. When looking at these, consider whether you will be able to sustainably implement them into normal practice routines, and how this might be done so that they become part of the practice culture.
