Table 2 Implementation mapping in the SAVE-study

From: A hybrid type I, multi-center randomized controlled trial to study the implementation of a method for Sustained cord circulation And VEntilation (the SAVE-method) of late preterm and term neonates: a study protocol

Implementation mapping steps Application in the SAVE-study
1.Conduct a needs and assets assessment and identify adopters and implementers • Review of lessons learned in the process of the stepwise start-up of the SAVE-study, from phase I-III
• Identify a feasibility process for start-up of new sites
2.Identify adoption and implementation outcomes, performance objectives, and determinants, create matrice of change • Identify roles and responsibilities for clinic decision makers, stakeholders, facilitators (the local SAVE-team), adopters and end-users (see Table 3)
• Identify implementation outcomes for managers, adopters and parents experiencing the SAVE-method (see Table 3)
• Defining determinants of the implementation (see Fig. 3)
3.Choose theoretical models, select or create implementation strategies • Selection of the PARIHS framework and the implementation outcomes evaluation framework
• Development of the logic model of the SAVE-study (Fig. 3)
4.Produce implementation protocol and materials • Develop data collection aids, instruction videos, CEPS-simulation exercises and lectures to train involved staff
• Setting up a multidisciplinary implementation group (MIG) and develop the implementation protocol
• Arrange workshops using an adoption of the Delphi model to identify questionnaires to be used when evaluating implementation outcomes
• Testing of implementation toolkit when starting up additional sites
5.Evaluate implementation outcomes • Plan evaluation of clinical and implementation outcomes
