You can read more about designing interventions to reduce disparities and building ideal strategy, level, mode combinations in Step Four of The Roadmap to Reduce Disparities.
Strategy: What you will do, or the “big picture” method by which change will occur. For example, perhaps your big picture strategy is to restructure the health care team. Other examples include engaging the community or providing financial incentives.
Level: Who you will target, or the level at which the change is happening. Some examples include: the patient, the community, the organization, or even policy.
Mode: How you will deliver the intervention. For example, an intervention could be delivered using multimedia, print materials, or in person—such as through community health workers.
Based on Finding Answers’ review, successful interventions often use multiple strategies and target multiple levels of influence to address the complex causes of disparities.
