From: Interprofessional collaborative practice within cancer teams: Translating evidence into action. A mixed methods study protocol

Elements Short definitions
A. Assess barriers and supports
Local context
   • Work environment Factors such as rules, regulations, available resources, and support
   • Work pressure Fit between EIPCP work load and receptivity of involved professionals
   • Competing demands Multiple pressures calling for practice change and importance of EIPCP and time constraints
Recommendations form BPGs  
   • Intervention source Professionals' perception of whether the EIPCP is an externally or internally driven intervention
   • Benefits ratio Professionals' perception of the added value for themselves and for the service users
   • Adaptability The extent to which recommendations can be adapted to fit the dynamics of the local context
   • Usefulness Perceived usefulness of recommendations from BPGs and others sources of evidence
   • Knowledge Professionals' definition and concepts related to collaborative practice and anticipated outcome of EIPCP
   • Current practice Fit between EIPCP, perceived quality of care process and shared decision making
   • Beliefs/Attitudes Value that professionals place on EIPCP and perception of responsibilities regarding care
B. Monitor degree of use
   • Operational processes Sequence of events illustrating how cancer team members perform collaborative care planning and shared decision making,
   • Relational processes Sequence of events illustrating how cancer team members interact, communicate and negotiate shared intervention zone
   • Adaptive processes Sequence of events illustrating how cancer team members enact changes in order to enhance collaborative practices
