STREAM 2: ‘Identifying the Barriers to Implementation’

 

Executive Sponsors: John Wiggers, Stream Leads: Luke Wolfenden and Serene Yoong

Q2. What are the barriers to implementation of Chronic Disease Prevention interventions in community settings?

Best-practice approaches for the development of strategies to improve implementation require a comprehensive understanding of implementation barriers (and facilitators). Despite representing the fundamental building blocks for strategy development, most studies to identify implementation barriers in community chronic disease prevention are uncommon, not guided by theoretical frameworks, and narrow in focus. We will undertake a program of work to identify international and Australian barriers and facilitators to the implementation of the priority community chronic disease prevention interventions.
