Understanding implementation fidelity in a pragmatic randomized clinical trial in the nursing home setting:a mixed-methods examination.
This randomized clinical trial called Pragmatic Trial of Video Education in Nursing Homes (PROVEN) was one of the largest trials to be conducted in nursing homes on education of residents in Advanced Care Planning (ACP). The trial used videos with champions promoting ACP education across two large health-care systems. The trial length was 18 months, with champions offering video education to the residents every six months. At the end of the study 28 interviews involving 33 champions were analyzed. The researchers found different patterns between high- and low-adherence nursing homes. High-adherence nursing homes had more family and patient willingness to engage in the program and champions were better at recruitment. Champions also supplemented the video with ACP conversations.
