Welcome to RE-AIM.org!

As we start 2017 we are continuing to make changes to the website. Look for a new and improved RE-AIM quiz that the RE-AIM workgroup is putting together. We hope to have it up by mid February.

We have also been checking out recent RE-AIM publications and are highlighting them as they come out. If you are someone who has used RE-AIM and can’t find your work on the website. Please send your information along to us.

In this regard, I was reading a couple of things this morning and came across a really nice paper by Katsulis and colleagues from September 2016. The paper reports on a user-centered approach to adapt an electronic decision support intervention to tailor fall prevention strategies for specific locally relevant risk-factors. The user-centered approach included perceptions and feedback from patients and clinical staff with a goal to increase the tool’s adoption. It is a really nice paper and Table 1 is a great example of quickly describing the RE-AIM dimensions addressed, during what phase of the project, and using what data sources. Definitely worth a look!

 

Cheers, from Paul Estabrooks and the RE-AIM workgroup.
