For implementation of the PCAM cheap sinequan 75mg with visa, this included: l training and support l broader multidisciplinary team (MDT) involvement l the review/patient consultation l resources discount 75mg sinequan with amex. For trial implementation this included: l training and support for data collection l broader practice involvement l patient conversations about the study. Within each of these broad areas, the researchers then grouped their field note data around topics of context, fidelity to study intentions, dose (in relation to trial training or intervention training), adaptations, reach (who did nurses include/exclude), unanticipated consequences and participant responses/interactions with the study. The research team then collectively reflected on these processes to determine key learning points for the implementation of the PCAM and the implementation of the trial. If time had allowed, we would have attempted to populate these tables, and followed this with a review of how best the broad areas and their topics consistently captured and described all the necessary detail, with a further iteration of the tables for final population/data extraction. Not all topics were populated across all practices, and some duplication of information occurred across categories, for example, some reflections on participant responses to/interactions with the study could also populate the topic of adaptations. This method of analysis of multiple researcher field note data was novel and could be refined for further studies. From feasibility to full-scale trial: using the ADePT decision aid to help identify protocol changes The true value of any feasibility study is to identify and/or address any threats to internal or external validity that may have an impact on a full-scale trial. However, very few feasibility studies assess this in any systematic way. We chose to reflect on our study and its process evaluation with reference to ADePT,51 to identify protocol modifications for a full-scale study. The ADePT algorithm seeks to encourage systematic identification and appraisal of problems and potential solutions, improve transparency of decision-making processes and reveal tensions that exist between choices that lead to a pragmatic versus explanatory trial. We identified the following areas as relevant to this feasibility trial: sample size, eligibility, recruitment, consent, randomisation, adherence/fidelity of intervention, acceptability of intervention, selection of appropriate outcomes, completion of outcomes, retention and logistics of multicentre sites and whether or not all components of the protocol worked. In evaluating the feasibility trial and its methods, several of the methodological issues identified by Shanyinde50 have been addressed elsewhere. Chapter 4 has addressed the quantitative findings in relation to sample, eligibility, recruitment, consent, randomisation and outcomes; Chapter 5 has addressed some aspects of adherence and fidelity to the PCAM intervention; and Chapters 3 and 6 have explored the acceptability of the PCAM intervention. The following analysis will focus on: l retention l study logistics in the multicentre sites l where any adaptations to protocol were identified l any unintended consequences l whether or not components of the protocol worked together. Did the feasibility/pilot study allow a sample size calculation for the main trial? What factors influenced eligibility and what proportion of those approached were eligible? Were participants successfully randomised and did randomisation yield equality in groups? Was the intervention acceptable to the participants? Was it possible to calculate intervention costs and duration? Were the outcomes measured those that were the most appropriate outcomes? Were the logistics of running a multicentre trial assessed? Solutions are developed in line with whether or not there is a need to change aspects of the intervention, the trial design or the context. Solutions (single or multiple) can then be reflected on for the likelihood of their feasibility or effectiveness in a trial and/or the real world (depending on the type of problem). Findings The findings will first be presented for the process evaluation of the implementation of the PCAM by PNs, followed by the findings of the process evaluation of the feasibility trial and its methods. The findings of the process evaluation of the implementation of the PCAM are presented as a collective analysis for all three PCAM practices because the majority of issues (contextual, implementation and mechanisms of impact) were common across all practices. Implementation of the Patient Centred Assessment Method in primary care nurse consultations for long-term conditions Context There were some overarching contextual issues that were relevant to all practices. The removal of the QOF in Scotland from April 2016 resulted in a lack of certainty around funding for primary care support for people with LTCs and what practices would be expected to achieve. For some practices, this appeared to be creating an organisational limbo. This could either support practice engagement, with the PCAM being seen as providing an interim way forward, or acting as a barrier to adoption, if practices interpreted the removal of the QOF as meaning that they were no longer required to focus on LTCs. In one practice, the PM hoped that the PCAM might be a useful way to identify and manage lifestyle behaviours, which is likely to be a future priority for LTC management in primary care. Some practices already had some of their own initiatives in place, which were seen as overlapping with the PCAM goals; for example, practice E had already developed a holistic programme for patients with COPD. This same practice also began to use HoC between phases 1 and 2 of the feasibility study.

In this sense safe 10 mg sinequan, PCAM-related topics are consistent with the broad range of concerns that patients have about their condition purchase 25mg sinequan overnight delivery. Professional and patient views on acceptability of Patient Centred Assessment Method topic areas Professional and patient participants were asked to reflect on how they would feel about a broader range of biopsychosocial questions, as is reflected on the PCAM assessment, being discussed in consultations relating to LTCs. There was a wide range of opinions on how participants felt about the potential of being asked about biopsychosocial aspects of their health. Professional participants also reflected on this wide variety of opinions, with some participants much more familiar or comfortable than others with asking patients about the broader context of their lives. In Mental health, Health literacy and Social environment and finances, we discuss responses to these potential discussions for patient and professional respondents by general topic area.

Participants talked about not necessarily always choosing to be open about their mental health, but most seemed to welcome the opportunity to talk about how they were feeling and how they were coping with their condition. Patient 16 Professional participants were in agreement that discussions about mental health were an expected part of the consultation with patients with LTCs. The professional participants were able to describe the tools they used to assess mental health, and the value of the inclusion of mental health screening on the templates they follow for conducting reviews with patients. Professional staff participant 7 Some professional participants described some reluctance to talk about mental health with patients for fear that it would mean running out of time to do the other standardised review tasks. There were also concerns that the standard screening tools were not as easy to use with non-English-speaking patients. Professionals also shared how few of them had been able to participate in mental health training opportunities. Professional staff participant 2 In summary, both patient and professional participants expressed that being comfortable with discussions about mental health was an important part of receiving care for a LTC. Patient participants were comfortable with having these conversations with the nurses, and the professional participants saw it as an important part of the care they provided. Health literacy Patient participants were asked how they would feel if they were asked questions about their health literacy. It was seen as appropriate that the nurse would check in about how patients wanted information and help to support them in finding better ways to get information. Standard written information, such as leaflets, 22 NIHR Journals Library www. Patient 31 The professional participants also highlighted the challenge of health literacy and, just like the patient participant group, they highlighted a lack of comprehension of information by patients. One professional focus group noted that their practice area had patients for whom English was a second language, which made some work challenging. One group also noted the difficulties in working with people with learning difficulties, although it was felt that there might then be a carer involved to help support communication. Professional participants described their frustration at the time spent sharing information repeatedly. Professional staff participant 10 In summary, health literacy is an area of concern for patient and professional participants. The patient participants described their frustration at a lapse in memory or comprehension. Professional participants noted a lack of information retention. Both felt that it was an important area, yet there was no discussion of patients and professionals communicating together about this topic together. As a result, some professionals may assume that patients are not listening, while some patients may be reluctant to share, unprompted, that they are having cognitive challenges. This suggested that this area of the PCAM tool could be particularly useful and seems like an acceptable area of discussion for consultations. It was certainly seen, by this group of participants, as something that PNs mostly do not discuss, although some felt that district nurses might be more likely to do so. Some felt that such questions should be asked of patients only if the nurses had a reason to be concerned about the patient.
