What is it?
We offer introductory and intermediate training that develops knowledge and skills in the use of intervention mapping to design, develop, deliver and evaluate tailored, evidence based behaviour change programmes using systematic procedures. This includes:
- Needs assessment and identification of target behaviours for change
- Identification of individual and environmental determinants of target behaviours
- Identification of appropriate behaviour change techniques
- Personnel, informational and infrastructure supports for delivery of the intervention
- Planning outcome and process evaluations
- The evidence base for the effectiveness of the intervention mapping approach
Who is it for?
This training is suitable for anyone who designs, adapts or commissions behaviour change intervention programmes, for example:
- Health promotion and primary prevention, e.g. smoking cessation, physical activity, diet, sexual health, reducing problematic use of alcohol and recreational drugs.
- Self management of chronic health conditions, e.g. promoting adherence to medication, aspects of ‘lifestyle’ change associated with conditions such as asthma and diabetes.
- Rehabilitation, e.g. setting goals for physical activity, specific exercise programmes, promoting appropriate use of aids and supports.
If you have a number of people who want to be trained, we can bring the training to you and tailor the programme to your specific needs. We also run training days on our Coventry campus, for individuals to attend. These too can be tailored to meet the needs of the individuals who sign up.
