Table 1 Overview of Study Assessments

From: “Push” versus “Pull” for mobilizing pain evidence into practice across different health professions: A protocol for a randomized trial

Elements of evaluation based on a theoretical framework[6870] What is evaluated Evaluation methods (applied throughout the trial)
Structural Technological functionality and design 1. Embedded quick questions on functionality
   2. Number of articles accessed.
Subjective (Usefulness) Perceived usefulness of intervention 1. Embedded questions on usefulness of randomly selected logins.
Cognitive 1. Attitudes towards the use of evidence in practice 1. Attitudes about EBP from Knowledge/Attitude/Behaviour Questionnaire [71]
  2. Types of evidence valued 2. We will code using a taxonomy that addresses type of pain, type of intervention and type of research to look at preferences for information across disciplines.
Behavioral Behaviour in Applying Evidence in Practice  
  1. Self-reported EBP behaviour 1. Self-reported from Knowledge/ Attitude/Behaviour Questionnaire [71]
  2. Research Access Skills 2. Skills at retrieving useful evidence when presented with a clinical question will be assessed by a structured online performance-based test of information access behavior [72]
  3. Application of Research Evidence in Clinical Decision-Making 3. Actual integration of use of evidence in decision-making will be assessed by chart stimulated recall [7375]
