Abstract:
To insure the quality and consistency of interventions in RCT studies, numerous measures must be undertaken from the time of initial planning and theoretical appplication to actual implementation of the intervention. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss various methods that can be employed to assure the integrity in an intervention study. Various methods can be used to assess the integrity of an intervention, such as(a) the use of an intervention manual for both the experimental and control groups, (b) random observation of groups by the PI, (c) audiotaping of sessions and random review of audiotapes, (d) weekly supervision meetings between the PI and interventionists, and (e) self-evaluations completed by interventionists following each intervention session. Additional measures to be discussed include issues related to training of research team personnel, participant recruitment procedures, and intervention implementation. Developing and implementing numerous strategies that provide the researcher with clear documentation regarding the integrity of the intervention is critical. At the same time, insuring the integrity of an intervention results in increased requirements in the areas of supervisory personnel, data entry and analysis, as well as budget and resources. Without establishing various control strategies to insure the integrity of an intervention from its initial development, the "controlled" aspect in a randomized controlled trial is in jeopardy.
