Table 3 Overview of RECOLLECT CDA sessions

From: Best practice framework for Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in collaborative data analysis of qualitative mental health research: methodology development and refinement

Meeting 1
April 2017
Preparation (Approach 1)
Discussion of the aims of the RECOLLECT project. Explanation of the PPI co-researcher role. Joint agreement on role expectations and ground rules (e.g. confidentiality). Identification of initial PPI suggestions about mechanisms and outcomes for RC students for inclusion as a priori codes in preliminary coding framework.
After Meeting 1 Generation of preliminary coding framework by inductive document analysis (n = 10) by academic researchers, incorporating meeting 1 suggestions as a priori codes. Circulation of meeting 2 documents (including preliminary coding framework) in advance
Meeting 2
July 2017
Consultation on a coding framework (Approach 1)
Education around qualitative research. Reflexive exercise on what PPI co-researchers bring to the analysis. PPI co-researcher commentary on the content and language used in the preliminary coding framework, and on interpreting areas of ambiguity in data informing the preliminary coding framework
After Meeting 2 Contributions regarding content, language and interpreting areas of ambiguity incorporated into the coding framework by the academic researchers. Deductive coding of remaining documents (n = 34) and refinement of coding framework by academic researchers. Refined coding framework circulated to PPI co-researchers for feedback. Circulation of all meeting 3 documents in advance
Meeting 3
September 2017
User-led development of a model of change (Approach 2)
Re-visiting and finalising of the refined coding framework. Education around models of change and how to create them. PPI co-researchers develop a model of change using components of the coding framework, illustrate the model with practical examples, and identify the most important components
After Meeting 3 Model of change formatted by the academic researchers. Model of change sent to PPI co-researchers for further commentary and refinement. Incorporation of feedback into the model by the academic researchers. Completion and analysis of semi-structured interviews with stakeholders (n = 33) by academic researchers to refine the change model. Circulation of meeting 4 documents in advance
Meeting 4
December 2017
Dissemination, reflection, group processing and celebration
Final verification of the model of change. Exploring and reconciling (where possible) remaining areas of ambiguity. Completion of Involvement Questionnaire. Celebration of PPI co-researcher achievements
