Exploring determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviour using the theoretical domains framework. (2024)
Journal Article
TALKHAN, H., STEWART, D., MCINTOSH, T., ZIGLAM, H., ABDULROUF, P.V., AL-HAIL, M., DIAB, M. and CUNNINGHAM, S. 2024. Exploring determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviour using the theoretical domains framework. Research in social and administrative pharmacy [online], 20(4), pages 401-410. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.sapharm.2023.12.009

Few theoretically-based, qualitative studies have explored determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviour in hospitals. Understanding these can promote successful development and implementation of behaviour change interventions (BCIs). To use th...

Evaluation of community pharmacists' awareness towards Middle East respiratory syndrome: a simulated client method. (2023)
Journal Article
SOLIMAN, A.B., TALKHAN, H.A., IBRAHIM, M.I.M. and SHALASH, A.A. 2023. Evaluation of community pharmacists' awareness towards Middle East respiratory syndrome: a simulated client method. Journal of clinical and diagnostic research [online] 17(6), pages IC01-IC05. Available from: https://doi.org/10.7860/jcdr/2023/62030.18022

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a viral respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus variant in the Arabian Peninsula. There is a lack of information regarding awareness and practices of community pharmacists in Qatar for this contagious di...

Thesis
TALKHAN, H. 2022. A mixed-methods study to identify, quantify and explore determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviours among clinicians in Qatar. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1712972

The detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and awareness of the magnitude of associated threats to global public health as well as the world economy have long been recognised, with many countries implementing antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) prog...

Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhin.2022.01.007

Aim: To identify and quantify potential determinants of antimicrobial prescribing behaviour, using the Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF). Methods: A cross-sectional survey involving doctors (∼4000) and pharmacists (∼400) working within Hamad Medica...

Using the theoretical domains framework to investigate clinicians’ behavioural determinants of antimicrobial prescribing in Qatar. (2021)
Presentation / Conference
TALKHAN, H., STEWART, D., MCINTOSH, T., ZIGLAM, H., ABDULROUF, P.V., AL-HAIL, M., DIAB, M. and CUNNINGHAM, S. 2021. Using the theoretical domains framework to investigate clinicians’ behavioural determinants of antimicrobial prescribing in Qatar. Presented at 2021 Health services research and pharmacy practice conference (HSRPP 2021): designing healthcare: stimulating interdisciplinary and co-design for quality healthcare, 8-9 April 2021, [virtual conference].

Introduction: A recent systematic review by Talkhan et al demonstrated the need for theoretically based behaviour change interventions in this area. [1] For development of such complex interventions, emphasis should be placed on using theory to syste...

Theoretical approaches in the development and evaluation of behaviour change interventions that improve clinicians’ antimicrobial prescribing: a systematic review. (2019)
Presentation / Conference
TALKHAN, H., STEWART, D., MCINTOSH, T., ABDULROUF, P.V., AL-HAIL, M., CUNNINGHAM, S. and ZIGLAM, H. 2019. Theoretical approaches in the development and evaluation of behaviour change interventions that improve clinicians’ antimicrobial prescribing: a systematic review. Presented at 2019 Federation of Infection Societies conference (FIS 2019), 11-14 November 2019, Edinburgh, UK.

Many countries have developed antimicrobial stewardship programmes with strategies to optimise antimicrobial prescribing. There remains a need for behaviour change interventions at clinician level to promote appropriate prescribing. Theories should b...
