Table 7 Treatment of qualitative data

From: A realist process evaluation of Enhanced Triple P for Baby and Mellow Bumps, within a Trial of Healthy Relationship Initiatives for the Very Early years (THRIVE): study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Participants will be asked to give their written consent for interviews to be audio recorded
Interviews will be conducted at a time convenient for participants, usually in their home
Interviews will be transcribed verbatim, anonymised, and cross-checked for quality
Field notes will be written immediately following interviews to note unrecorded discussion and reflect on key themes
The main themes will be independently coded across a sample of interviews by two researchers using Nvivo 10
A coding frame will be agreed by two researchers
All data will be coded using this coding frame and further additions/adaptions will be discussed
Themes will be summarized using the one sheet of paper method (OSOPs) [40]
Analysis of themes will be developed through writing and wider discussion with the process team
