From: Prescriber and patient-oriented behavioural interventions to improve use of malaria rapid diagnostic tests in Tanzania: facility-based cluster randomised trial

Figure 2

Flow of facilities, health workers (prescribers) and patients through different stages of the intervention and evaluation. The outcome data collection periods include eligible patients presenting at the facilities between the intervention implementation activities. For example, evaluation period 1 commences after the standard RDT training and initial RDT supply until the start of the intervention training. See Table 1 for further details on timing of intervention implementation and evaluation. The total data collection is based on all eligible patients presenting at the facilities following the standard RDT training until the final exit survey. It, therefore, includes patients presenting during the intervention implementation activities which were excluded in the outcome data collection periods. RDT, rapid diagnostic test.
