ASSESSMENT using RE-AIM and PRISM
This section provides guidance on data collection using RE-AIM and PRISM. We posit that RE-AIM and PRISM can be used temporally (before, during, and after implementation), in different settings (clinic, community, corporate), with multiple levels of stakeholders, and for a variety of targeted audiences and outcomes. Depending on the phase of implementation, sources of data, and questions you are answering, either qualitative approaches, quantitative approaches, or mixed methods may be most appropriate. We strongly advocate mixed methods approaches in collecting and analyzing data about the RE-AIM dimensions and contextual factors in PRISM.

QUALITATIVE DATA COLLECTION ASSESSING RE-AIM DIMENSIONS
Several focus group guides and individual interview guides have been graciously shared as examples of qualitative data collection tools that may be adapted for your use for research and practice, based on stakeholder priorities.
RE-AIM Workgroup Templates
The National Working Group on RE-AIM Planning and Evaluation Framework would like to share templates of focus group and one-on-one interview guides. These are by no means comprehensive of all styles and types of qualitative data collection, but rather a template for you to adapt based on your research and stakeholder priorities.
- Template for Participant Focus Group Pre-Implementation
- Template for Participant One-On-One During Implementation
- Template for Participant Focus Group After Implementation
- Template for Research Team One-on-One Pre-Implementation
- Template for Staff Focus Group During Implementation
- Template for Stakeholder One-on-One After Implementation
Example Qualitative Data Collection Tools
Some of our colleagues have graciously shared their qualitative data collection tools. We are in the process of compiling this information for upload. These are the intellectual property of the research team but available for your perusal. Contact information was up to date upon posting. Please email Samantha Harden if there are issues.
