Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The intervention program will be delivered across 12 months, with key outcomes assessed at the end of the 12m period. The intervention content will align with key messaging that will address: i) Awareness about OHCA, its health impact and the potential to prevent adverse outcomes through action ii) Recognition of a cardiac arrest iii) Rapid Response - the importance of a timely first response including early CPR and defibrillation.
Intervention content will be drawn from some existing and some new materials developed by partners(including materials compiled by NSW Health, Heart Foundation and not-for-profit organisations -Michael Hughes Foundation, Take-Heart Australia, Surf-Life-Saving NSW). All materials to be used will undergo a review process managed by an operational committee of the steering committee to assess quality and alignment of material with current guidelines. The content has been finalised through a collaborative consultation with clinicians, experts, researchers, stakeholders, partners and consumers. The review process will involve a content review by experts as well as consumers.
Intervention messages will be delivered in a variety of ways to reach out to all members of the participating organisations:
(i) Digital delivery: Materials delivered in digital format will comprise of written, picture and video format and incorporate key messaging, education and information sent to members of participating organisations via text message on a fortnightly basis over a period of 12 months. It is expected that participants will spend approximately 5-10 minutes engaging in the intervention messages and accompanying video/fact-sheet material every fortnight.
(ii) Information/educational sessions: A 1-hour group information session will be delivered at a venue suitable to club members in-person or as an online webinar. This will be conducted by personnel accredited in CPR who also have experience in providing CPR training to lay-persons. Training will incorporate a PowerPoint presentation(45mins) that will review key messages on responding to cardiac arrest, a demonstration on a mannikin of how to perform CPR and also demonstration of use a defibrillator. There will be a ‘Question and Answer’ time allocated. The timing of this session is not fixed and can occur at a time convenient to the organisation and by 10-months after baseline survey. There is no fixed group size, and this will depend on venue capacity and local organisation interest and requirements. A recorded version of the session will be available for members to access at request after the event.
(iii) Incentives to attend accredited CPR training: This will be provided by Surf Lifesaving NSW an accredited provider of CPR training. Accredited training includes training with a mannikin. Up to 30 vouchers will be made available per organisation with the potential of more being made available to larger organisations, pending on interest and resources. Sessions, where possible, will be conducted on organisation premises or at a convenient local venue. If participants are unable to attend they can attend public accredited CPR courses. These incentive vouchers will aim to ensure participation by 10 months form baseline.
(iv) Display of educational materials at participating clubs and organisations: Posters, banners, and display of educational material in other formats such as videos on LCD screens where available will be made available to participating organisations. In addition, material to post on social media or club apps or to publish in their newsletters will be made available depending on communication channels at individual clubs. Timing of delivery: Ad hoc throughout the duration of the 12month campaign period.

MONITORING OF ADHERENCE TO INTERVENTION COMPONENTS:
Digital: Adherence to engagement with the messages will be monitored in the participants that receive messages via email. They will be asked to score the video/factsheet material on its usefulness on a 5-point Likert scale. Participants who receive messages via SMS-platform TextcareTM as text will not be monitored as this would incur a cost to participants if they were requested to send a reply text, however, we will monitor text responses from participants. A survey item will also be included in the follow up questionnaire to assess whether participants viewed educational materials, whether by text or email and their feedback on the content.
In-Person Information/educational sessions: We will record attendance at sessions including webinars and also include in our follow-up surveys questions on participation and feedback on these sessions.
Incentives to attend formal CPR training: We will record use of vouchers and date of attendance to accredited CPR sessions. We will also ask in follow-up surveys on participation and feedback on these sessions.
Display of educational materials at participating clubs and organisations: We will document what material was provided to organisations and record whether this material was utilised through routine audits. In addition, we will also ask in serial surveys whether participants recollect seeing the material displayed and feedback will be requested.

REMINDERS IN REINFORCEMENT PERIOD: This will comprise a low-cost ongoing campaign of digital messages delivered at a lower frequency in the second year to members in the intervention group to reiterate key messages with aim of reinforcing the learning. Secondary outcomes examining sustained learning effect will be assessed at 24 months.
Intervention messages will be translated where a need is indicated in multiple languages.

Implementation outcomes (barriers and enablers),
Mixed-methods tools will be used to assess barriers and enablers outcomes including:

Key informant interviews with committee members of participating organisations and where possible organisations that refuse participation - in the period immediately after screening and recruitment process and then again following intervention completion.
These one-on-one semi-structured interviews will run for about 30 minutes. They may be conducted in-person or over the phone/zoom and will be recorded pending permission from interviewee.

Focus group discussions: with participating members in the period following completion of intervention.
We will be conducting several semi-structured focus group discussions with subgroups based on factors such as age, ethnicity.
Group size is likely to be between 8-10 people and are likely to run for between 60-90minutes.
We will provide the option of conducting these in-person or virtually and will be recorded with permission and consent from participants.

Field notes and Program Delivery Documents analysis: Analysis of notes documented by research assistants during the screening and recruitment period supplemented by analysis of quantitative data on key organisation characteristics including size, type, location and any other factors relevant to implementation of a long-term health promotion project.

Randomisation of community groups (clusters) will be through a computerised sequence generation
We will employ stratification with the following factors:
- size of community organisation (based on number of members+employees)
- type of community organisation (sports, social, workplace)
- geographic location of community organisation (metro or regional/rural)

Other design features
This is a cluster randomised controlled trial (cRCT) involving 200 community groups across urban and regional/rural New South Wales (NSW), Australia. The trial will involve random allocation of clusters (community groups) in a 1:1 ratio to intervention or control. Primary and secondary outcomes will be assessed using surveys to individual members of community groups (clusters).

Statistical methods / analysis
SAMPLE SIZE: A sample of 200 community groups (100 per arm) will provide ~80% power to detect an increase in the proportion that are 'trained and willing to do CPR’ by 10% (39% to 49% - the estimate of 39% is from a survey of about 1000 community participants in Australia[1]. This assumes an intra-class coefficient (ICC) of 0.2, a cluster size of 30 and hence a total individual sample size of 6000 (assuming equal group sizes) at a two-sided p-value of 0.05. It also accounts for drop out or data loss of 15%. An ICC of 0.2 is used as a conservative as ICC in other community groups have been reported to be 0.05 to 0.2[2,3].

ANALYSIS METHODS: Analyses will be conducted by statisticians blinded to allocation status. Analyses will be conducted at the individual level while accounting for clustering of participants within groups. Intention-to-treat principle will be followed with participants analysed according to their randomisation group. Evaluation surveys will be conducted at baseline and annually through the program. The primary analysis of the composite endpoint of ‘willing to do CPR on a stranger’ and ‘ever trained in CPR’ at 1 year and will use a log-binomial regression model or robust Poisson regression in case of convergence issues. The clustering will be incorporated into the model using a frailty model, which involves introducing a shared random effect into the model for participants from the same cluster[4]. Relative risk and the associated 95% confidence interval will be reported. Pre-specified covariates namely, age, gender end educational level will be included in an adjusted analysis. The same models mentioned for the primary analysis will be used for the secondary objectives.
Subgroup analysis will be completed to compare primary outcome to explore the interaction of the treatment effect by age groups, gender, socioeconomic status, ethnic/ cultural background, geography (metro/regional), CPR training (prior/recent).

We will also conduct additional complimentary analyses including: 1) Process evaluation to evaluate implementation (barriers and enablers), fidelity of the intervention and reach of the intervention , 2) Economic evaluation and 3) Comparison of bystander CPR rates and OHCA survival rates in areas of intervention compared to other areas not receiving the intervention using a quasi experimental approach and data from secondary data sources.

Summary
Brief summary
Good quality bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) significantly increases the chances of survival for a person who suffers a cardiac arrest in the community. Yet not everyone in the community is trained, confident and willing to provide this life saving skill. FirstCPR is a targeted health education intervention designed to reach out to members in the community via organisations and clubs to upskill them in the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to a cardiac arrest and build their confidence and willingness to provide CPR and use a defibrillator in an emergency. Training will include digital material plus face-to-face information sessions.
