Pragmatic Applications of RE-AIM for Health Care Initiatives in Community and Clinical Settings


Figure 1. The RE-AIM Self-Rating Quiz is scored on a scale of 1 to 10 as follows: 9 or 10, excellent; 7 or 8, good, but could use a little work; 5 or 6, fair, needs additional planning; and less than 5, poor, needs serious attention. It may be helpful to have several team members take this self-rating quiz and then compare and discuss answers.
