The implementation of evidence-based physical activity interventions is improved when integrated research-practice partnerships are used. These partnerships consider both research-and practice-based evidence that moves beyond only assessing program efficacy. Our novel hypothesis is that integrated research-practice partnerships may lead to interventions that are practical and effective, reach more participants, and are more likely to be sustained in practice.
