Scaling Implementation of Collaborative Care for Depression: Adaptation of the Stages of Implementation Completion (SIC)
Tools to monitor implementation progress could facilitate scale-up of effective treatments. Most treatment for depression, a common and disabling condition, is provided in primary care settings. Collaborative Care Management (CoCM) is an evidence-based model for treating common mental health conditions, including depression, in this setting; yet, it is not widely implemented. The Stages of Implementation Completion (SIC) was adapted for CoCM and piloted in eight rural primary care clinics serving adults challenged by low-income status. The CoCM-SIC accurately assessed implementation effectiveness and detected site variations in performance, suggesting key implementation activities to aid future scale-ups of CoCM for diverse populations.
