Evaluating the implementation process of a new telerehabilitation modality in three rehabilitation settings using the normalization process theory: study protocol. International Journal of Healthcare Management, 1-8.
Introducing innovations such as telerehabilitation (TR) into routine care involves complex changes in organizations. This study protocol aims to (1) examine the extent to which a TR platform was implemented as intended in three clinical settings and (2) identify which TR activities were becoming integrated into routine clinical practices, and which factors affect the routine use of the platform.
