Supplementary Material

The supplementary material shows the quality criteria used to assess mammographers’ competence to deliver the Promoting Early Presentation Intervention, either from audiotaped interventions or direct observation. They cover all aspects of the intervention in terms of content and style of delivery. The criteria marked ‘E’ were considered the essential to be met, and those marked ‘D’ desirable to be met, in order to say that the intervention was delivered satisfactorily. The quality criteria were used as the basis for performance feedback, which focused mainly on the ‘Essential’ and ‘Desirable’ criteria.
