Table 2 Interview questions for carer actor

From: Heart health whispering: A randomized, controlled pilot study to promote nursing student perspective-taking on carers’ health risk behaviors

Question #1 Can you describe your thoughts and feelings about the approach the student nurse took to help him or her understand your thoughts and feelings about the health-risk behavior?
Question #2 Can you tell me whether you think that the approach the student nurse took helped him or her to better understand your thoughts and feelings about the health-risk behavior? Prompt: If yes, I would be interested in knowing ‘how’ the student’s approach helped you to describe your thoughts and feelings about the health-risk behavior? Prompt: Did the student nurse’s approach affect how you felt about the student nurse? Prompt: Did the student nurse’s approach affect your behavior toward the student nurse?
Question #3 Can you describe whether your ‘personal’ approach (s) will be different when you talk about your own wellness and health-risk behaviors with other health care providers (e.g., your physician, other nurses)? Prompt: Can you tell me whether you plan to continue using this approach to help your own health care providers better understand your health-risk behaviors? If no, why not? If yes, why?
Question #4 I am also interested in knowing if the student’s approach caused you to learn something different about yourself and how you view health risk behaviors?
Question #5 As a last question, is there anything else you would like to add to help the researchers of this study develop this intervention to help student nurses talk with carers about health- risk behaviors? Example: Were there any comments or concerns about the appropriateness and clarity of study questionnaires (i.e., the computer risk identification tool, the ‘readiness to change’ ruler, and the CARE tool) and the video-tagging exercise?
