This Web-based Implementation Toolkit (WIT) is designed to be easy to use and intended for a variety of users, projects and settings where implementation is planned or being considered. Implementation is the attempt to introduce a new intervention, innovation or policy developed through research and apply it to health and/or social care and the third sector. WIT provides you with an interactive Implementation Wheel, Checklist and bite-size Webinars (average 10 minutes) to support you through your implementation journey.

Who is WIT for?

  • Anyone looking to understand more about or engage in implementation.

Why use WIT?

  • WIT recognises the need to provide freely available, accessible and simple to use tools that focus on key implementation considerations at the outset of a project.
  • WIT was co-produced through interactive workshops with health and social care professionals, third sector organisation professionals, academics and members of the public.

When to use WIT

There are six wheel domains to help you consider what is required for implementation. Click on a domain segment to find out more.

How to use WIT

  • Use the interactive Implementation Wheel, Checklist and bitesize Webinars to support you on your implementation journey and beyond.
  • The six Wheel domains can be used iteratively, and in no particular order.
