A strategy for translating guidelines into recovery-oriented innovations

At the core of the Walk the Talk toolkit is a strategy we developed to implement the Guidelines for Recovery-Oriented Practice. In this publication we discuss two important components of the implementation strategy: 1) establishing an implementation team and 2) conducting the 12-meeting planning process. 

This research article was published in the journal Evaluation and Program Planning in 2022 and is open-access (meaning free for anyone to download). In it we describe the process of establishing an implementation team and conducting the 12-meeting planning process that we rolled-out in 7 organisations across Canada as part of a research project. Read this article to find out what members of the implementation teams across Canada thought about the process.
