Recognizing the limited resources available to support non-expert implementers in using knowledge translation methods to implement evidence-based practices, we created the Select Tool. It supports implementers to operationalize the COM-B and Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF) to select corresponding, theoretically-linked strategies. The tool can be used to move from identifying barriers and facilitators to implementation to selecting the corresponding implementation strategies that can be tailored and operationalized based on user needs.
We would like to thank Dr. Sharon Straus, Dr. Tina Fahim, Dr. Julia Moore, Dr. Sobia Khan, Melissa Courvoisier, Fatiah De Matas, Nadia Somani, and Shusmita Rashid for their work creating this tool.
