  1. Importance and feasibility values reflect the product of an expert panel (valid response n = 54) rating 66 discrete implementation and user-centered design strategies on a scale from 1 to 5. Comparisons based on F10,43 multivariate tests; * = p < 0.05
  2. IMP experts implementation experts, UCD experts user-centered design experts
  3. aCohen’s d effect size, also known as the standardized mean difference; calculated such that positive values reflect higher ratings by implementation experts and negative values reflect higher ratings by UCD experts; thresholds are d = 0.2 for small effect, d = 0.5 for medium effect, and d = 0.8 for large effect
