Implementing and evaluating complex interventions

Try the NPT Toolkit now

New technologies, and business processes in healthcare are complex and demanding

This website offers a users’ guide to Normalization Process Theory (or NPT). Implementing and evaluating complex interventions, new technologies, and business processes in healthcare is complex and demanding. NPT can be used to support the work of implementation and evaluation of complex interventions. 

This website offers a set of conceptual tools and explanatory models (Normalization Process Theory, or NPT) intended to support the work of implementation and evaluation. If you are a researcher, clinician, manager, or someone else who has to practically implement and integrate some form of innovation, this website could help you think through the processes involved. It offers four resources:

  • An outline of NPT's basic concepts, and an introductory powerpoint that you can download.
  • An interactive toolkit to help you think through your implementation/evaluation problems, and a quick introductory guide to the toolkit that you can download.
  • A 23 item survey instrument (NoMAD) for assessing implementation processes from the perspective of professionals involved in implementation, that can be downloaded and adapted for your own use.
  • Introduction to ways to use NPT in research, along with links to key journal articles and book chapters, and - as we collect them - examples of studies and evaluations that you can download.
