Metrics for Perceptual Implementation Outcomes

Acceptability of Intervention Measure (AIM)
To be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how receptive they are to adopting the new intervention.

Feasibility of Intervention Measure (FIM)
To be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how possible and likely they are adopt the new intervention.

Intervention Appropriateness Measure (IAM)
To be taken by Clinicians (end users) to measure how suitable the intervention is for the circumstances.

Each of these measures contain 4 questions, and can all be found here.

Metrics for Patient-Reported Outcomes

Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS)
Taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms (any type) and their impact on functioning. 

Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
Taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms of specific disorders/challenges.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7)
Taken by patients to measure the severity of symptoms of specific disorders/challenges.

Metrics for Usability

System Usability Scale (SUS)
This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for digital interventions (e.g. apps or computer programs).

Intervention Usability Scale (IUS)
This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for interventions (e.g. therapeutic modalities).

Implementation Strategy Usability Scale
This measures how easy the intervention/system is to use and learn. Used for system-level interventions.

User Burden Scale
This measures the mental/emotional/economic challenges of using a digital tool as part of an intervention and is completed by anyone directly interacting with the tool.

Heuristic Evaluation Rubric for EBPI’s (HERE)
This multi-faceted evaluation of efficiency/quality/usability of EBPI’s involves experts in both design and the relevant subject matter (at least 2 people) filling out the rubric independently and the comparing answers and negotiating a final score together.
