Identifying essential implementation strategies: a mixed methods process evaluation of a multi-strategy policy implementation intervention for schools

This paper explores implementation of an adapted version of the Physically Active Children in Education (PACE) program to inform future scale up.

In prior studies, the multi-component PACE intervention was proven to be effective in assisting schools to implement mandatory physical activity policies. This new study looked at delivery dose, fidelity, adoption and acceptability of both PACE and an adapted version of PACE with less in-person external support. The study also explored implementation barriers and facilitators using qualitative methods.
