Table 1 Measurement of the implementation of the group-based Mi-LiFE intervention in primary care for older adults aged 75 years or older using the RE-AIM framework and evaluation dimensions

From: Measuring the implementation of a group-based Lifestyle-integrated Functional Exercise (Mi-LiFE) intervention delivered in primary care for older adults aged 75 years or older: a pilot feasibility study protocol

Dimension Description Study outcome Level
Reach Proportion of the target population that participated in intervention • Number of participants recruited over 6 months—including data on eligibility and interest in program Individual
Potential effectiveness Effect of the intervention on specific individual outcomes Primary outcome: Individual
   • Change in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity levels (min/day) measured from pre- to post-intervention  
Secondary outcomes:
• Change in self-reported physical activity levels (min/week) measured from pre- to post-intervention
• Change in composite SPPB score measured from pre- to post-intervention
• Change in EQ5D-3L five dimensions and VAS QOL score measured from pre- to post-intervention
Adoption Proportion of settings, practices, and plans that will adopt this intervention • Number of physician or nurse referrals from each of the five pods within the family health team Organization
Implementation Extent to which the intervention is implemented as intended in the real world • Fidelity to original clinical trial by Clemson et al. [1] Organization
   • Barriers and facilitators reported by research staff, clinical team or participants during implementation  
Maintenance Extent to which a program is sustained over time • Retention at 6-month follow-up Individuala
• Adherence to the exercises at 6-month follow-up
