Evaluation of an implementation process and its fidelity can give insight into the ‘black box’ of interventions. However, a lack of standardized methods for studying fidelity and implementation process have been reported, which might be one reason for the fact that few prior studies in the field of health service research have systematically evaluated interventions’ implementation processes.
The aim of this project is to systematically evaluate implementation fidelity and possible factors influencing fidelity of complex interventions in health and social care (Hasson, 2010).
