Concurrent Session #14 (Monday, July 21, 2014)
The West Virginia GEAR UP team has been collecting detailed individual-level data about program participation since the start of the 2008 grant. This data enables project staff and evaluators to take a long-term view of implementation to understand how the program operated, how it changed over time, and how it differed across the multiple implementation sites. Applying models from implementation science enables stakeholders to examine structural and procedural aspects of implementation to fully understand the program in practice. Presenters will describe the models and methods used and the preliminary findings. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences.
