Table 1 Moving from review finding to TiDieR elaboration—example

From: Using qualitative research to develop an elaboration of the TIDieR checklist for interventions to enhance vaccination communication: short report

Review finding Step 1: What factors does the review finding describe that might influence the implementation and uptake of the intervention? Step 2: What information would we need from the trial reports to assess whether these factors had been considered in the development of the intervention? Step 3: Which, if any, TIDieR checklist items does this information relate to? Step 4: How could these TiDieR items be elaborated to ensure that this information is captured?
Finding 4. Healthcare workers in community-based and primary care settings described how older adults often followed their vaccine recommendations. Healthcare workers believed that this influence was linked to trust, which in turn was linked to long-lasting relationships and sometimes also to shared cultural or language backgrounds (low-confidence finding) 1. The nature of the patient–healthcare worker relationship
2. The extent to which the healthcare worker and patient speak a shared language
3. What is the nature of the relationship between the healthcare worker and the older adult? Do they already have an established relationship (for instance, are they the older adult’s family doctor or nursing home staff), or is it likely that the older adult will be meeting them for the first time (for instance, during a hospital appointment)?
4. Have any routines been put in place to facilitate communication with older adults who do not speak the majority language?
TiDieR item 5. Who provided: For each category of intervention provider (for example, psychologist, nursing assistant), describe their expertise, background and any specific training given
TiDieR item 9. Tailoring: If the intervention was planned to be personalized, titrated or adapted, then describe what, why, when and how
