We need your help. The use of frameworks and theories in implementation research guide evidence translation, identify implementation determinants, and evaluate implementation. Selecting an appropriate framework or theory is made challenging by the lack of clear guidance for selecting from amongst the increasing number of frameworks and theories in the field. These challenges may contribute to the default use, underuse or misuse of frameworks and theories. 
The objective of our study is to understand criteria for selecting appropriate frameworks and theories for implementation research.
Please help us by completing a brief survey in which you tell us about the criteria that you use to select a framework or theory for your implementation research. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. If you have already completed this survey, please feel free to disregard this message.
Feel free to contact me (birken@unc.edu) with any questions or concerns about the study.
