Abstract Introduction
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are one of the most common device-related infections. Healthcare professionals (HCPs) play a key role in preventing CAUTI and interventions which target the influences on their behaviour are crucial in reducing the incidence of CAUTI. This study aimed to fill the gaps identified by previous behavioural analysis work in the national response to CAUTI in primary, secondary and care home settings. MethodWe conducted a mixed methods analysis involving: i) rapid review and behavioural analysis of effective research interventions using the Behaviour Change Wheel, Theoretical Domains Framework and the Behaviour Change Techniques (BCTs) Taxonomy; ii) mapping behavioural content of research interventions against the key influences on HCPs' CAUTI-related behaviours and comparing this with national interventions; iii) developing new intervention components using a stakeholder focus group and survey. ResultsThe rapid review identified 37 effective research interventions, which were multi-faceted and delivered through a broad range of BCTs and intervention functions. Based on research interventions, 38 potential intervention components were created and then refined during a focus group with 14 stakeholders. The survey identified seven intervention components judged to be feasible to implement which targeted key barriers such as lack of knowledge about risks of catheters or requests from patients and carers.
By drawing on behavioural theory and tools as well as expert stakeholder views and experiences, this project identified intervention components which can be considered when optimising individual national interventions to reduce CAUTI-related infections. External funding details
