Join us for the first of this year’s DHP-S Postgraduate workshops on designing, delivering and evaluating health behaviour change interventions with Dr Angel Chater.
Dr Angel Chater is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at UCL and a Reader at the University of Bedfordshire where she leads the Centre for Health, Wellbeing and Behaviour Change.
Any intervention that aims to change behaviour needs careful consideration. Intervention mapping provides a protocol for considerations that may improve our understanding of behaviour change when planning such interventions. However, there are many intertwined and overlapping models and theoretical approaches that could be drawn upon when addressing interventions that aim to engage a diverse audience and change behaviour.
This workshop will introduce you to the leading and most recent approaches, most specifically the Behaviour Change Wheel (Michie et al., 2011) and theoretical frameworks to support your understanding of behaviour change intervention design, delivery and evaluation.
It will further support group discussions that will encourage you to apply knowledge gained from the workshop to an intervention that you may be working on or have an interest in developing.
To facilitate this, it would be helpful if you come along with details of an intervention you are working on or planning in the future.
By the end of this workshop you will:
Develop an understanding of the importance of planning in intervention development
Show consideration for the specific stages of needs assessment, setting objectives, specifying intervention outcomes in behavioural terms, content development in relation to behaviour change techniques, implementing an intervention to ensure fidelity and appropriate evaluation.
