Practical Training: Applying Theories in Intervention Development
Full course description
The practical training provides search strategies (called ‘core processes’) for finding appropriate theories and empirical data to answer planning-related questions when designing behaviour change programmes using the Intervention Mapping protocol.
- describe the rationale for applying core processes in each step of behaviour change program planning;
- explain the importance of using empirical literature and theory in formulating answers to program planning questions;
- demonstrate the successful application of the topic-related, concept-related and general approaches to theory finding.
