The TRIAGE Study investigated non-responsiveness to treatment for the degenerative eye condition, glaucoma. The study assessed whether a new evidence-based clinical pathway intervention, the Cardiff Model of Glaucoma Care, was feasible and acceptable to doctors, nurses and optometrists in four hospital eye services. The purpose of the CMGC intervention was to establish whether patients were responsive to their treatment when first initiated. This was achieved by staff instilling an eye drop at the clinic and IOP measurement four hours’ later. Four weeks later patients returned to have their IOP re-measured to determine whether they were still responding to treatment.

This dataset contains three data forms:

i) Observational field note data of clinical appointments: Researchers independent from the clinical team sat in the CMGC consultations between staff and patients, documenting any procedural, professional or behavioural issues associated with the appointments, as well as any variations in practice.

ii) Field work notes relating to broader implementation activities in the research sites: Alongside consultations, wider observational data were collected week-by-week around issues associated with the implementation not evident within the appointments themselves. These included organisational or technological issues that had potential to influence whether the intervention could be implemented more widely.

iii) Interviews with healthcare professionals involved in the CMGC: Semi-structured interview schedules focussed on whether the CMGC met interviewees’ expectations in its clinical effect and what they perceived to be the barriers and facilitators to future implementations.
