Table 1 Proposed steps of the fiscal mapping process, as adapted from intervention mapping

From: Coordination of sustainable financing for evidence-based youth mental health treatments: protocol for development and evaluation of the fiscal mapping process

Step Intervention mapping steps Fiscal mapping process steps
1. Needs assessment Identify determinants (barriers and facilitators) of implementation/sustainment Identify resources needed for implementation/sustainment and determinants for those resources
2. Matrices Specify program objectives and link those objectives to determinants Specify funding objectives and link to determinants of needed resources for implementation/sustainment
3. Theory-based methods Specify feasible, available implementation strategies matched to objectives Specify feasible, available financing strategies matched to funding objectives
4. Intervention, adoption, and implementationa Select strategies that best address the determinants Enact financing strategies that best address resources needed for implementation/sustainment
5. Evaluation plan Monitor and evaluate progress Monitor and evaluate financial viability
  1. aIntervention mapping has six steps [74, 75], but the “intervention program” and “adoption and implementation” steps are redundant and can be combined when the intervention is an implementation strategy [71, 73]
