From: Bridging the gap between pragmatic intervention design and theory: using behavioural science tools to modify an existing quality improvement programme to implement “Sepsis Six”

Step Tasks Behavioural science tools used
Characterise existing intervention
(fully described in [16])
Collection of data on intervention content from relevant intervention documents, interviews with intervention facilitators/developers, observation of intervention delivery Template for Intervention Description and Replication (TIDieR)
Data analysed for BCTs and intervention functions BCT Taxonomy (v1), behaviour change wheel
BCTs and functions mapped to TDF domains likely to be targeted TDF
Identification of influences on Sepsis Six implementation Design and piloting of interview topic guide TDF
Conduct interviews, analyse data/code responses TDF, thematic analysis
  Ideas for modification: mapping TDF domains identified to BCTs TDF, BCT Taxonomy (v1)
Development of a modified implementation intervention Selection of intervention modifications to existing content Delphi, APEASE
Creation of modified intervention protocol BCTs
