The triple C (consultation, collaboration and consolidation) model: a way forward to sustainability of evidence into practice
Implementation science has evolved in recent years due to the rapid advances of evidence-based healthcare. Several frameworks and theories of implementation have been published and are in use by researchers and healthcare practitioners to support the embedding of evidence into practice. An overarching theory summarizing the key elements of the various existing frameworks has been described by Damschroder et al.1 The authors have identified five key domains that overlap in the available theories and existing models using a snowball sampling approach to identify the various constructs across the published theories. The five major domains identified are the intervention characteristics, outer setting, inner setting, characteristics of the individuals involved and the process of implementation. The advantage of such a model is that it provides a pragmatic outline for tackling complex multi-level interventions to ensure effective implementation.
