||Durlak and DuPre begin by describing the necessity to understand and review research implementation strategies. The authors define different aspects of implementation and specific parameters for searching for relevant literature examples. The primary focus of the literature search was on prevention and health promotion programs for children and adolescents. The literature search began in 1976 with the beginning of implementation research and progressed through 2006. Encompassing 542 relevant interventions, results indicated primarily that programs with more clearly defined implementation strategies were more effective than those with poor or weak ones. Another interesting finding showed that expectations of 100% implementation is unrealistic. Positive implementation results were found around levels of 60-80% compliance.
