The Iowa Practice Improvement Collaborative (PIC) Project's Evidence-Based Practices: An Implementation Guide for Community-Based Substance Abuse Treatment Agencies recommends a mix of:

  • chart reviews
  • surveys of clients and staff
  • interviews with staff
  • fidelity checklists or scales

"Such a multimodal approach – which can include both quantitative and qualitative measures – is more likely to accurately capture the full range of implementation."
