Table 2 Comparison of TICD 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 TICD domains:determinants selected by mappers
LD ARG Determinant Match

 AMDEs within 2 years of use were considered unusual Health professional cognitions: expected outcome Health professional cognitions: expected outcome Yes
Health professional cognitions: agreement with recommendations No
 Views about cause of AMDEs confounded by multiple factors Health professional cognitions: agreement with the recommendation No
