Fidelity
General Information
Construct Name: Fidelity
Definition of Construct: "Degree to which an intervention was implemented as it was prescribed in the original protocol or as it was intended by the program developers." Fidelity of the intervention as it is implemented in a "real world" setting may be compared to the fidelity from the original evidence based intervention. Fidelity should be considered within the early and middle implementation stages.
