Reach Effectiveness Adoption Implementation Maintenance

This site provides an explanation of and resources for those wanting to apply the RE-AIM framework. The RE-AIM framework is designed to enhance the quality, speed, and public health impact of efforts to translate research into practice in five steps:

  • 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

Among the RE-AIM website features are:

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

Please send comments and suggestions or your own RE-AIM related work for inclusion on the site to Samantha Harden.
