Aim of the Course

To introduce people who are planning to develop interventions to the range of ways of doing this, and the key principles and actions to address. The day will be grounded in examples from our own experience in working in teams that have developed and adapted interventions, and working in the Research Design Service to advise people on intervention development.  It will focus on 2019 MRC-funded guidance on intervention development.
