Theoretical Framework: A Case Study

Decent Essays
This step includes two tasks: select which theory (ies), or theoretical framework(s), are likely to inform the pathways of behaviour change and use qualitative and/or quantitative methods to identify the barriers and enablers to behaviour change. To complete this step’s tasks, the TDF framework was used as a guide to develop a survey aimed to identify the facilitators and barriers to use PROM scores in the clinical practice and to deliver self-management support according to clinicians’ perception. Participants Participants in this study are clinicians including physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, and clinical psychologists, who will be recruited from the pain clinics at Montreal General Hospital, Jewish General Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal constance-lethbridge rehabilitation centre, and Centre de Réadaptation Lucie-Bruneau. The inclusion criteria of the clinicians are treating CLBP, ability to speak English or French, and participating in the interdisciplinary intervention program. The head of the pain department at each site will be contacted to identify the potential participants. Then, a customised letter will be sent to potential participants asking them to be a part of…show more content…
For each question in the survey, the percentage of clinicians who chose "agree/strongly agree" and "disagree/strongly disagree" will be calculated to determine the facilitators and barriers. "agree/strongly agree" responses refer to the facilitators, while the "disagree/strongly disagree" refer to the barriers. Then, the questions will be ranked from the higher to the lower percentage of "disagree/strongly disagree", after that, the top five questions will be chosen and considered as barriers. As a next step, the behavior change domains (i.e. factors) that correspond to the barriers will be mapped on behaviour change techniques to select the most appropriate KT interventions components that aim to overcome the barriers
