For step 3, appropriate theoretical methods to induce the desired behavior changes were chosen, and strategies were formulated on how these methods could be translated into practical applications. As theoretical methods, we selected specific behavior change techniques (BCT) from version 1 of the Behavior Change Technique Taxonomy (BCTTv1) [36]. A BCT is the “active ingredient” of an intervention—an observable and replicable component designed to change the behavior in question.

To help select appropriate BCTs, a recent publication by Johnston et al. was consulted, which aims to identify links between BCTs and their impact on determinants of behavior, based on literature and expert consensus [37]. Therefore, the BCTs for this intervention were selected based on these links, the input from the feedback panel, and taking into consideration their feasibility, relevance, and acceptability for each site.
