Interventions need to remain relevant, appropriate, and effective for the populations they aim to target. This chapter focuses on describing a quality assurance process that can be used by program developers to facilitate program innovation through a 10-stage research-and-development cycle. Using the Triple P system as the exemplar, we illustrate how the model can be applied continuously from initial program development, program adaptation, to global international dissemination to ensure the program is ready for dissemination and will benefit as many families as possible. The intervention development framework presented outlines important considerations and lessons learned in the development cycle of interventions. The framework aims to ensure that the quality assurance and quality control of interventions remains high so that interventions can be as successful as possible.
