Immediate versus sustained effects: interrupted time series analysis of a tailored intervention

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Detailed intervention descriptions and robust evaluations that test intervention impact---and explore reasons for impact---are an essential part of progressing implementation science. Time series designs enable the impact and sustainability of intervention effects to be tested. When combined with time series designs, qualitative methods can provide insight into intervention effectiveness and help identify areas for improvement for future interventions. This paper describes the development, delivery, and evaluation of a tailored intervention designed to increase primary health care professionals' adoption of a national recommendation that women with mild to moderate postnatal depression (PND) are referred for psychological therapy as a first stage treatment.
