Applying pragmatic and valid tools can support change teams to accurately measure barriers and facilitators to knowledge use and strengthen their understanding of these factors. Additionally, a tool’s results and analysis help change teams prepare for the next action cycle phase, ‘Select, tailor and implement interventions’.
The table below lists the tools that can be used to measure the identified problem and to determine the know/do gap. For each tool, two documents are provided – 1) a summary page that includes the tool’s purpose, description and applicable action cycle phases, and 2) a companion document that details the tools’ pragmatic and psychometric properties.
*All of the tools can also be considered for use during the action cycle phase: Monitor knowledge use.
