Purpose: The purpose of this poster is to describe the successful implementation of treatment fidelity strategies during a multi-site behavioral intervention study. Treatment fidelity strategies from our trial are consistent with recommendations published by the NIH Behavior Change Consortium Treatment Fidelity Workgroup (BCC). Background: Treatment fidelity includes methodological strategies that enhance reliable and consistent intervention delivery during behavioral studies, increasing confidence that changes in outcomes are due to the intervention under investigation. In 2004, the NIH BCC developed recommendations to encourage more consistent incorporation of treatment fidelity practices into behavioral intervention research. Methods: The Stories and Music for Adolescents/Young Adult Resilience during Transplant (SMART) study (R01NR008583; U10CA098543; U10CA095861) is an ongoing multi-site Children's Oncology Group randomized clinical trial testing the efficacy of a therapeutic music video intervention for adolescents/young adults (11-24 years of age) with cancer undergoing stem cell transplant. The intervention team is comprised of 14 interveners, who deliver a 6-session manualized intervention and low dose control condition. Prior to study implementation, our investigative team established a comprehensive set of treatment fidelity procedures. Results: We summarize 20 specific treatment fidelity strategies used in the SMART trial and how these strategies correspond with NIH BCC recommendations in 5 specific areas: 1) study design, 2) training providers, 3) delivery of treatment, 4) receipt of treatment, and 5) enactment of treatment skills. Conclusions: Increased use and reporting of treatment fidelity procedures is essential in advancing the reliability and validity of behavioral intervention research. The SMART trial provides a strong model for integration of treatment fidelity procedures, as recommended by the NIH BCC. Funding: Study funding from the National Institutes of Health-National Institute of Nursing Research R01NR008583; and the National Cancer Institute U10 CA098543 and U10 CA095861. Additional presentation support comes from the first author's institutional CTSI career development award, PHS (NCCR) KL2RR025760-02.
