Table 1 Comparison of TDF determinant mapping across mappers

From: Comparing the application of two theoretical frameworks to describe determinants of adverse medical device event reporting: secondary analysis of qualitative interview data

Determinant themes from AMDE study TDF domains selected by mappers
