From: Adapting evidence-informed population health interventions for new contexts: a scoping review of current practice

Criterion Definition
Document type Peer-reviewed research papers
Non-peer-reviewed research documents (e.g., dissertations, theses, book chapters)
Document focus Primary studies describing a process of adaptation of an evidence-informed intervention to a new context
Primary studies evaluating an evidence-informed intervention adapted to a new context (e.g., process and/or outcome evaluation)
Adaptation Modifications made to the content of interventions AND/OR
Modifications made to the delivery of interventions AND/OR
Modifications made to the context in which interventions are delivered
New context Drawing on the Context and Implementation of Complex Interventions (CICI) framework dimensions [67], context is characterised by differences in geographical, epidemiological, socio-cultural, socio-economic, ethical, legal, and/or political determinants
  NB: Research papers which describe scale-up of interventions will be included only if the scale-up is described in relation to changes in any of the foregoing contextual features (e.g., taking interventions tested in a specific district for implementation in other districts, which differ in their contextual profile, such as population and socio-economic determinants)
Population health interventions Interventions, programmes, and policies which seek to change the population distribution of risk/health outcomes
These interventions can be delivered to whole populations or sub-groups defined based on specific characteristics (e.g., age, increased levels of risk)
Interventions may encompass public health or health services research
Year Research papers published from 2000 onwards
Language Papers written in English, German, French, Italian, Russian, or Spanish
