After a literature review, an easily self-administered tool was developed to explore the influence of baseline motivation on the response to a hospital-based intervention to change health worker practices and later, the interaction between motivation and delivery of the intervention over a period of time.

The value of this 10 item tool will become apparent only with repeated field tests, which are ongoing and which will be reported in due course.
