Author List of authors
Year Year of publication
Objective Summary of publication’s objective(s)
Country Country where implementation efforts were conducted
Setting Physical setting where implementation took place (e.g., mental health clinic, church, community center, primary care)
Sector Sector (e.g., psychology, social work, mental Health, behavioral health, public health)
EBP, Innovation or Intervention Specific EBP (i.e., the innovation or intervention) implemented
Health focus Whether a health focus was reported (yes/no)
Study design Study design as reported in the paper (e.g., prospective, retrospective, hybrid implementation, case study, participant observation)
Study methodology Study methodology (i.e., qualitative, quantitative, or mixed)
Larger Study Design Methodology of larger study, if the effort was part of a larger study
Type of EPIS use How EPIS was used (e.g., study design, data collection, measurement, analysis, coding, and/or reporting/interpretation)
Level of data collection Level(s) of data collection (e.g. outer context, inner context, multilevel)
Level of analysis Level(s) of analysis (e.g., provider, team, supervisor, organization, system)
Outer context Whether outer context factors were assessed (yes/no)
Inner context Whether inner context factors were assessed (yes/no)
Innovation factors Whether innovation factors were assessed (yes/no)
Bridging factors Whether other bridging factors within EPIS were assessed (yes/no)
Implementation strategy Whether there was a researcher (co)initiated implementation strategy (yes/no) and reported (yes/no)
Implementation outcomes Implementation outcomes (e.g., feasibility, adoption, fidelity)
Stages EPIS phase(s) in which implementation factors were assessed: Exploration, Preparation, Implementation, Sustainment; Phase(s) were rated for the degree to which the authors were explicit in their use, where 0 = phase not included, 1 = implicit inclusion of phase, 2 = explicit inclusion of phase. Explicit inclusion is where the authors overtly included the named phase(s) of EPIS that were included in their study, while implicit inclusion was assessed by the reviewers based on the EPIS phase definitions
Depth Overall depth of inclusion of EPIS, from 1 = conceptual (e.g., inner and outer context factors were applied to study design but not carried through the study and evaluation phases) to 5 = operationalized (e.g., looked at a few factors incorporated throughout the paper [intro, design, measurement, conclusions] or included all phases)
