Our team contributes to an article published in Implementation Science entitled: A theory-based process evaluation alongside a randomised controlled trial of printed educational messages to increase primary care physicians ’ prescription of thiazide diuretics for hypertension
Congruent with the Ontario Printed Educational Messages trial results and aligned with the TPB, we saw no impact of the intervention on any TPB constructs. The theoretical basis of this evaluation suggests possible explanations for the failure of the PEM intervention to change professional behaviour, which can directly inform the design and content of future theory-based PEM interventions to change professional behaviour.

Our team has published an article in BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth entitled : What factors influence health professionals to use decision aids for Down syndrome prenatal screening?
Appraisal, PtDA availability, peer approval, time concerns, evidence and PtDA awareness all affect whether health professionals are likely to use a PtDA to help pregnant women make informed decision about Down syndrome screening. Implementation strategies will need to address these factors.
