: The Institutional Review Board of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) assessed the study and stated that this non-invasive study does not fall within the scope of the Dutch Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act. The board had therefore no task in reviewing the protocol (METC decision: METc 2016.094). The study was conducted in accordance with the declaration of Helsinki [CitationRef removed] and the General Data Protection Regulation [CitationRef removed]. Written informed consent was obtained from resident’ legal representatives regarding the randomized controlled trial assessing the utility of this approach, as reported in the protocol [CitationRef removed]. With respect to the process evaluation, verbal consent was obtained, considering that NH staff were targeted and content of the data related to the evaluation of a quality improvement initiative rather than resident sensitive information. All participants consented to participation in the process evaluation and all but one participant consented to audiotaping of the interviews. Verbal informed consent was recorded on tape. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed with anonymized codes.
