NIHR Global Health Research on reducing Preterm and Stillbirth (DIPLOMATIC)

ITST (Interrupted Time Series Trial) information, Work Package 3

This Work Package is linked to Work Package 6.

This is a trial styled using a rigorous high quality design (adaptive [multi-arm, multi-stage], randomised stepped wedge or interrupted time series, appropriate for the chosen EBP) with a formal sample size calculation to determine health impact, fidelity to the evidence-based practice and barriers and facilitators to implementation.

Quality improvement techniques will be used during the trial to continuously improve health outcomes and fidelity to the intervention.

Work Package 6 is the implementation, conduct and evaluation of the trial design.
