From: The MultimorbiditY COllaborative Medication Review And DEcision Making (MyComrade) study: a protocol for a cross-border pilot cluster randomised controlled trial

  Go—proceed with RCT Amend—proceed with changes Stop—do not proceed unless changes are possible
1. Feasibility of practice recruitment
Can 16 practices be recruited to take part in 3 months (8 practices in NI and 8 in ROI)?
If > 14 practices are recruited to take part in 3 months If > 14 practices are recruited, but it takes longer than predicted (e.g. 3–6 months) Unable to recruit practices
2. Feasibility of patient recruitment
Can 20 patients per practice (total N = 320) be recruited?
If 20 patients are recruited in one month per practice; a total of 320 (100%) If 10–19 patients are recruited in one month per practice; a total of 160–319 (50 to < 100%) If < 10 patients are recruited in one month per practice; a total of < 159 (50%)
3. Feasibility of practice retention
Can > 14 practices be retained in the study until completion?
> 14 (88%) retained > 12 (75%) retained < 12 retained
4. Feasibility of patient retention
Can at least 80% of recruited patients be retained in the study until completion?
> 256 (80%) retained 224–255 (70–80%) retained < 224 retained
5. Intervention implementation Delivery of intervention judged strongly feasible by qualitative data Delivery of intervention judged feasible by qualitative data Delivery of intervention judged possibly feasible by qualitative data
