Guidance for conducting feasibility and pilot studies for implementation trials

Science expertise


Resource category


This paper aims to provide broad guidance for the conduct of feasibility and pilot studies for implementation trials. Feasibility and pilot studies for implementation trials are similar to those for intervention trials, but focus on developing implementation strategies, refining research methods and undertaking preliminary testing of implementation strategies. This slightly different focus often presents challenges for researchers who are new to implementation science.
