Table 2 Results for fidelity to treatment delivery in the ICONS trial

From: Assessing fidelity to treatment delivery in the ICONS (Identifying Continence OptioNs after Stroke) cluster randomised feasibility trial

Trial arm Interventiona Supported implementation
Number of clinical logs analysed 396 320
Number of patients 40 31
Percentage of total number of patients 24.4 % (40/164) 24.8 % (31/125)
Percentage of clinical logs according to type of regime: Prompted Voiding (PV)/Bladder Training (BT) PV: 90.4 % PV: 100.0 %
/BT: 9.6 % /BT: 0.0 %
STAGE 1: % with voiding interval present and correctly documented 83.3 89.4
STAGE 2: % with both voiding interval and schedule of proposed voiding times present and correctly documented 38.9 31.9
No. of clinical logs that achieved both Stage 1 and Stage 2 154 102
For the clinical logs that achieved both Stage 1 and Stage 2:
STAGE 3: On average, how often was an ‘actual voiding time’ documented that was within 30 min of the proposed voiding time?b 54.8 % 56.0 %
STAGE 4a: On average, how often was encouragement documented as given? 58.4 % 57.5 %
STAGE 4b: On average, how often was it documented that the patient had been asked if they were wet?c 57.9 % 65.9 %
  1. aThis refers to sites which delivered the intervention only, and not the supported implementation package
  2. bOccasions on which a clinically justifiable explanation was given for an early/late/missing actual voiding time were exempted from this analysis
  3. cThis applies to Prompted Voiding clinical logs only
