User-led digital interventions for people diagnosed with psychosis are desired by mental health policy makers. However, because digital interventions face many implementation barriers and there is need to understand more about what happens during trials to predict likely “real world” feasibility. Understanding implementation from the perspective of end users may help optimise implementation evaluation. The EMPOWER process evaluation, while using mixed-methods (including quantitative time-series network analysis) foregrounded qualitative research to map out what intervention feasibility, acceptability, and implementation might mean from the perspectives of service users, carers, and mental health staff. Key results in a proposed intervention logic model include several key components including affective (how using the intervention made people feel), motivation (why people engaged) and psychosocial (how symptoms or cognitive problems impacted on engagement) elements.
