Research translation with new health technologies: the nonadoption, abandonment, scale-up, spread, and sustainability (NASSS) framework

Abstract: Many promising technological innovations in health and social care are characterized by nonadoption or abandonment by individuals or by failed attempts to scale up locally, spread distantly, or sustain the innovation long term at organisation or system level. This talk will present a new evidence-based, theory-informed, and pragmatic framework which was developed to help predict and evaluate the success of technology-supported health or social care programmes.
