This chapter provides an overview of the state of implementation outcome measurement in general and specific to the cancer control continuum. A novel conceptualization of the timing of implementation outcome assessment is presented as it pertains to the Exploration, Preparation, Implementation, and Sustainment model. An environmental scan revealed 40 measures across eight implementation outcomes in use across the cancer control continuum. The quality of measures in use is either poor or not yet established. Five key measurement challenges are broached, with recommendations for resolving them provided wherever possible. The chapter closes with emerging advances in implementation outcome, context, and process measurement and a list of resources for the field.
