From: Searching for best practices of youth friendly services - a study protocol using qualitative comparative analysis in Sweden

Domain 1: research team and reflexivity
1 Interviewer/facilitator On page 10: The first author and two research assistants with expertise on qualitative methods will conduct the interviews and focus groups discussions. The first author has extensive experience conducting individual interviews and focus group discussions and will closely supervise the two research assistants together with the rest of the team. On page 10: All potential participants will be provided information about the study and the interviewer(s)/moderator before starting the interview/focus group discussion.

Domain 2: study design
9 Methodological orientation and theory Page 11: Interviews and focus group discussions will be audio recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analysed using thematic analysis inspired by the WHO domains of youth-friendliness [45].
10 Sampling Pages 10 and 11: In order to refine this preliminary list of conditions locally, we will conduct interviews with professionals working in youth clinics in northern Sweden. We will conduct individual interviews with around 15 professionals from different professional backgrounds, working in different YCs – in terms of i.e., size, location, and focus. In addition, and in order to gather the perspective of young people, we will conduct focus group discussions with young people who have attended YCs. Around 6 focus group discussions will be conducted. […] Health care professionals will be invited to participate via email after a first contact with the head of the clinic. Young people will be approached through the clinic staff as well as through youth organizations (i.e., rfsu). All potential participants will be provided information about the study and the interviewer(s)/moderator before starting the interview/focus group discussion. The final sample size of the individual interviews with professionals and focus group discussions with young people might vary and will be finally determined once saturation is reached.
11 Method of approach
12 Sample size
13 Non-participation Will be reported once data is collected and analyzed.
14 Setting of data collection Page 10: Participants will choose the location for the individual interviews. The focus group discussions will be conducted at the university.
15 Presence of non-participants We expect that nobody else will be present, but in case non-participants are present, this will be reported.
16 Description of sample Demographic data will be collected in order to describe the sample (age, gender, years working, professional background, level of studies, ethnic background).
17 Interview guide Page 11: The interviews and focus group discussions guides will be structured in a thematic manner, inspired by the WHO domains of youth friendliness [3]. Participants will be asked to reflect on the issues that they consider important in order to ensure that strategies are put in place to deal with challenges to these domains.
18 Repeat interviews Page 11: Participants will be asked whether they could be contacted again if needed. If repeat interviews are conducted, this will be reported.
19 Audio/visual recording Page 11: Interviews and focus group discussions will be audio recorded,
20 Field notes Page 11: Notes will be taken during and after the interview and during the analysis process.
21 Duration The duration of the interviews will be stated.
22 Data saturation Page 11: The final sample size of the individual interviews with professionals and focus group discussions with young people might vary and will be finally determined once saturation is reached.
23 Transcripts returned We do not plan to return the transcripts to the participants unless something is unclear.
Domain 3: analysis and findings
24 Number of data coders Page 11: The first author and the two research assistants will be involved in the coding process and negotiate the codes between them. The software Open Code 3.4 will be used to help managing the coding process. Even if the WHO domains will be used as a starting point, we will remain open to new emerging themes. The derived themes will be further discussed with the entire research team. Preliminary findings will be presented to some of the participants for feedback.
