Report that brings together the latest international thinking about the key issues relating to the implementation of evidence-based programmes, utilising both published work and expert opinion.

The aim is to provide a summary of issues that should be considered and planned for by those about to start implementing a new programme in order to increase the chances of success; to draw attention to sources of further information; and to share lessons that have been learned by others when implementing similar programmes.
