Event: Intervention mapping 1-day introduction course, Dundee, 8 June 2015

What: Intervention mapping 1-day introduction course

Intervention Mapping (Bartholomew et al., 2001; 2006; 2011) is a framework for developing and transparently reporting the rationale and content of theory- and evidence-based health promotion programs. The framework is ideally suited for developing complex, multi-level interventions to promote health, through changing health behaviours and/or environmental conditions (e.g., social, physical, services, policy). Intervention Mapping seems to successfully integrate the design of complex interventions with detailed content guidance on each of these key steps to maximise the likelihood that the intervention is feasible, acceptable, effective, and sustainable.

Where: Malmaison Hotel, Dundee, DD1 4AY

When: 8 June 2015

Additional Information: The trainers are Professor of Health Psychology Marijn de Bruin, Chair and lead of the health psychology group in Aberdeen, and Professor of Applied Psychology Rob Ruiter, head of the department Work and Social Psychology at Maastricht University.

More information is available online and in the provisional programme
