Lorencatto, F., West, R., Christopherson, C. and Michie, S. (2013). Assessing fidelity of delivery of smoking cessation behavioural support in practice.. Implementation Science, 8(40), -. doi: 10.1186/1748-5908-8-40

Abstract

Effectiveness of evidence-based behaviour change interventions is likely to be undermined by failure to deliver interventions as planned. Behavioural support for smoking cessation can be a highly cost-effective, life-saving intervention. However, in practice, outcomes are highly variable. Part of this may be due to variability in fidelity of intervention implementation. To date, there have been no published studies on this. The present study aimed to: evaluate a method for assessing fidelity of behavioural support; assess fidelity of delivery in two English Stop-Smoking Services; and compare the extent of fidelity according to session types, duration, individual practitioners, and component behaviour change techniques (BCTs).
