Ideally, strategies or measures which correspond as closely as possible to the results of the diagnostic analysis will be chosen and enacted. This chapter focuses on the complex matters and provides some guidance about developing or selecting strategies for change and ensuring they match the characteristics of the innovation, target groups and setting to create the most effective intervention possible. Systematic and rigorous methods are needed to enhance the linkage between identified barriers and change strategies. The chapter explores several of such methods. In order to select the best strategy for the change at hand, it is recommended to supplement the problem analyses with the use of scientific literature on effective change in patient care.
