Abstract
Background. Descriptions of training interventions for healthcare professionals include a lot of vagueness, leaving the reader in doubt about the intervention and the true value of the reported effects. A set of reporting criteria to improve the transparency and comprehensiveness in reporting training interventions in health care is recommended. This study aimed to develop and content validate a set of reporting criteria for the development and evaluation of training interventions for healthcare professionals. Methods. The set of criteria was developed through three stages: (1) a literature review, (2) the design of the criteria, and (3) a Delphi and consensus meeting process with ten experts from different professional disciplines. Results. The Criteria for Reporting on Development and Evaluation of Professional Training interventions in Healthcare (CRe-DEPTH) comprises 12 items divided in four categories: (1) development of the training, (2) characteristics of the training, (3) characteristics of the providers, and (4) assessment of the training outcomes. For example: “Description of the underlying theoretical framework”. Each criterion was provided with a detailed description to support its unambiguous interpretation. Discussion. High quality reporting is essential in describing complex interventions, also for training interventions. The CRe-DEPTH reporting criteria guide the development, evaluation and reporting of training interventions. The CRe-DEPTH are non-content specific reporting criteria and provide guidance for authors on any training intervention for professional training in health care. Its use will allow for detailed reporting on the training, its developmental process, as well as on the rationale for underlying choices, and will avoid non-reporting of training details. The challenge to find comprehensive and rigorous reported examples, gave an indication for the need for these criteria. Conclusion. The 12 CRe-DEPTH criteria might ensure transparent and comprehensive descriptions of training interventions in health care.
