This study is collaborative realist enquiry, informed by the Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF)50 and associated Behaviour Change Wheel (BCW),51 consisting of a realist evidence synthesis, intervention development and implementation evaluation with embedded feasibility in three work packages (WPs).

Benefits of community-based collaborative research are; to make research possible, produce credible data, recruit participants, make research and interventions more culturally acceptable and relevant to the local context, increase the likelihood of community action, increase sustainability of projects, and increase the quality of outcomes.

Primary outcome:

To learn and understand the reasons why people in your community may feel that they can not help during a cardiac arrest. We want to hear your ideas about how we can change this and increase the number of people helping during a cardiac arrest.

We want to speak to a range of people about their thoughts and experiences.
