Welcome to!

The RE-AIM workgroup invites you to participate in two opportunities.

First, please take a moment (~3 minutes) to complete this brief survey. Our intention is to collect information about the site users and enhance and/or develop requested materials. We look forward to reporting the outcomes of the survey in due course and updating the website.

Second, please join us (via webinar) for a presentation by Dr. Rodger Kessler on Tuesday, November 17th at 3pm EST. He will be leading a presentation entitled "PCORI Comparative Effectiveness project Integrated Behavioral Health in Primary Care (IBH-PC) trial: Background, Research Question, Aims,Design, Practices, Patient selection criteria and RE-AIM focus.” Tune in live and participate in a dynamic Q&A. We will post the presentation soon for those who cannot join us on November 17th.

  • Reach your intended target population

  • Efficacy or effectiveness

  • Adoption by target staff, settings, or institutions

  • Implementation consistency, costs and adaptations made during delivery

  • Maintenance of intervention effects in individuals and settings over time

The Key Features of RE-AIM website are:

  • Tools and resources to facilitate implementation
  • A comprehensive list of RE-AIM publications and presentations organized alphabetically by year
