Identifying Barriers, Analyzing Workflows, And Selecting Implementation Strategies With Community Partners Toolkit

This toolkit is designed to help investigators think through the steps needed to select and test implementation strategies in community-based healthcare settings. It is intended for investigators conducting research in community-based healthcare settings such as primary care clinics and community health centers. It details a collaborative process for 1) identifying barriers to evidence-based, equitable care, 2) reviewing existing clinical workflows 3) selecting implementation strategies, 4) facilitating implementation strategies and 5) supporting sustainability.

Community Health Center: Community Advisory Board Toolkit

This toolkit is intended to aid community health centers in organizing Community Advisory Boards (CABs) to enhance community involvement in the implementation of evidence-based programs and practices as well as research. This toolkit offers guidelines on various aspects of CAB management, such as leadership structures, communication, decision-making, prioritization, and budgeting for sustainability.
