Disseminating PAL

Led by Dr. Kathryn Schmitz, evaluation of the intervention was guided by Dissemination of Innovation Model constructs that help explain dissemination success, including relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability and observed results.  Results of this pilot study were used to further revise PAL intervention delivery approach to develop a larger dissemination trial.
