The STS Case Study: an analysis method for longitudinal qualitative research for implementation science


by Lynn Fitzwater, APRN ; Jane Moeckli, PhD ; Heather Schacht Reisinger, PhD ; Jen Van Tiem, PhD
Seminar date: 4/1/2021

Description: The STS case-study is a tool for implementors to use when a piece of material culture is an essential component of implementation. Material culture can reveal implementation barriers and direct attention to potential solutions that address tacit, deeply rooted challenges to innovations in practice and technology. We demonstrate this method using data from the implementation of Tele-Critical Care services in the VA.
