3.3 Expert Interviews

3.3.2 Design and implementation

The expert interviews were semi-structured in design. Participants were approached by email or telephone, with an information sheet and consent form provided in advance of the interview. The individual interviews were led by the individual project staff member leading the research on that particular health topic or contextual factor. They were conducted by telephone/Skype and were held in English or French. The interviews lasted between 30 and 60 minutes.  In addition, a series of face-to-face individual or group expert interviews were held in London, Geneva, and Paris (with meetings in Washington and New York taking place in late May/early June). Written notes were taken during the interviews. The topic guide used for the interviews focused upon: (i) the use research in their organisation, (ii) the main guidelines and frameworks that guide interventions and associated research, (iii) the main evidence gaps and research needs, and (iv) recommendations for future research questions.

In addition, to help validate and prioritise the study findings, the preliminary findings and recommendations from the expert interviews and systematic review were then shared by email with the experts, and they were asked to give their additional perspectives on the findings and their prioritisation of the recommendations.
