Item Measures of resource use Additional notes
Audit data collection Time of hospital personnel (data collectors) recorded for a sub-sample Job title and the time taken to extract the audit data from case notes or hospital information systems will be collected on the audit data collection form
To minimise burden on sites, the time taken to enter the data onto the NCA system will be estimated by having NCA personnel enter data for a number of ‘mock’ audit cases
Development and delivery of standard content feedback and enhanced content feedback Time of NCA personnel in designing and populating documents with audit data, including the NCA audit writing groups and associated support The NCA clinical audit leads and statistician team will record the amount of time taken to perform each of these activities.
Delivery of the enhanced follow-on support Time of personnel delivering and receiving the enhanced follow-on support, including the web-based toolkit plus telephone support AFFINITIE team members delivering the enhanced follow-on support will record the duration of telephone support and the use of the online toolkit
