There remains a lack of consensus on methodological approaches to the study of dissemination and implementation (D&I) processes, and especially tests of implementation strategies. To begin to address these deficiencies, this chapter reviews design issues for dissemination and implementation research. It presents an overview of some of the analytic approaches to D&I research, recognizing that this analytic work is still at an early stage of development. Finally, the chapter presents a case study of research that crosses three of four recognized D&I phases and illustrates a number of design and analysis issues.
