In the Netherlands, infectious disease control is executed by PHPs (nurses and doctors) working for municipal public health services (PHS). There are 25 PHS in the Netherlands, which serve different socio-geographical regions. We selected one PHS from three such regions (Utrecht, South-Holland, and Limburg) and asked them to invite two or three nurses and doctors with experience in CT for close-contact pathogens to partake in our interviews. The PHS included in this study were selected to reflect socio-demographic and -geographic diversity of PHS regions in the Netherlands, and for their willingness to participate in this study (i.e. a combination between purposive and convenience sampling was used).
