Designing and evaluating behaviour change interventions: Using the Behaviour Change Wheel and other tools in behavioural science
Post-conference Workshop – Wednesday 11th December 2013
This is a practical workshop that aims to put “flesh on the bones” of the UK’s Medical Research Council’s guidance on how to systematically develop and evaluate complex interventions, specifically its recommendations that interventions should be informed by relevant theories and specified by behaviour change techniques. The workshop brings together theory-based tools developed in behavioural science and shows how they interlink to guide the design and evaluation of behaviour change interventions.
Participants will be introduced to:
- a theoretically-based understanding of health behaviour change,
- current approaches and applications of behaviour change principles,
- current challenges and issues in how behaviour change interventions are designed and evaluated, and iv) tools and frameworks for optimising the design and evaluation of behaviour change interventions.
Understanding behaviour and designing effective interventions to change behaviour is relevant to much of what we do within behavioural medicine. Introducing participants to new tools to support intervention design and evaluation developed in behavioural science will equip society members with skills for advancing and applying behavioural medicine.
Facilitators: The workshop will be run by Louise Atkins and Fabiana Lorencatto which has been developed in collaboration with Susan Michie, UCL.
Date: Wednesday 11th December
Venue: New Radcliffe House, 2nd floor, Walton Street, Jericho, OX2 6NW (University of Oxford, Primary Care Health Sciences Department) from 8.30am to 5.30pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
