Post A response to this discussion; In you response address at least the following:
Which aspects of your classmate’s analysis of diffusion of innovation concepts (applied to school mitigation) do you agree with and where do you diverge in your thinking about the strategy? This should be at least one idea you add to their response or a different point of view in 2-3 sentences. Your response should be substantive in that it directly addresses the content of your classmates’ response.

I think that the easiest intervention to implement/maintain is cleaning. This is not a complex intervention and less complexity often makes it easier to implement and more likely for individuals to adopt it. It also has high trialability where it can easily be tried for a certain period so that potential adopters can see if it works for them before fully adopting the intervention.
Of the interventions mentioned, I think ventilation would be harder to implement and maintain. This may not be compatible with everyone. The schools may not have the funds or means to implement this intervention. It would also be more difficult to observe if it works and its outcomes. It also does not have the advantage of not being very complex and having trialability as cleaning does.
I would tell the CDC that when scaling the impact of mitigation strategies focus on magnitude and sustainability. Scaling magnitude is important in that they can focus on how to maximize the impact by making sure that it will work over larger scales and larger populations. This increases the impact that the strategy has on the community, population, and/or state. I also think that scaling sustainability is important. Making sure that the mitigation strategies are reliable and can be used successfully and effectively for long periods will help maximize the success of the intervention.
I remember learning about the Diffusion of Innovation Theory last semester in my health behavior theory class, so I was already familiar with the ideas in our reading. However, I had not learned about scaling impact. It was interesting to learn the different ways of scaling impact (magnitude, sustainability, variety, and equity) and I feel like the authors did a great job at providing examples that were easy to understand and helped paint the picture of how each can impact intervention success and implementation. All of what we learned about scaling impact was new to me, but with the authors using their apple orchard example, I feel like I was able to comprehend the information pretty well.
