ONLINE Developing Complex Interventions to Improve Health

ONLINE Course:
Thursday, 30th September 2021 - THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL
Thursday, 2nd December 2021 - Strict waiting list order in operation until 12noon on 22.07.21.


Researchers, clinicians, policy makers, patient groups and service providers often develop new interventions to address problems with health and health care. We will introduce people who are planning to develop interventions to the range of ways of doing this, and the key principles and actions to address. We will explore the different published approaches people can use and discuss how to choose the most appropriate one for a context, who should be part of an intervention development team, using co-design to unlock creative thinking, and how to design and refine a prototype. The day will be grounded in examples from our own experience of working in teams that have developed and adapted interventions, and working in the Research Design Service to advise people on intervention development.
