Table 1 Operational definitions of feasibility aspects related to intervention delivery [adapted from Bowen et al. [70]

From: Using intervention mapping to develop a theory-driven, group-based complex intervention to support self-management of osteoarthritis and low back pain (SOLAS)

Feasibility Operational definition
Acceptability The extent to which HSE physiotherapists consider the intervention prototype acceptable and appropriate within their service context
Demand The extent to which HSE physiotherapists perceive the demand of delivering the intervention prototype, including identification of training needs
The extent to which HSE physiotherapists perceive the demand of recruiting sufficient participants to the intervention within the feasibility trial
Practicality The factors influencing the delivery of the intervention prototype in a range of HSE settings by a range of physiotherapists taking into account variations in staffing, equipment and facilities
Adaptation The extent to which the intervention prototype content and delivery will need to be modified to enhance its acceptability and implementation in the feasibility trial
