Dr Kate Morton attended the EHPS (European Health Psychology Society) conference in Dubrovnik on 3/4 September, presenting the person-based approach to develop and disseminate behaviour change interventions.

A well-attended workshop, Using the Person-Based Approach to develop effective and engaging behaviour change interventions introduced the intervention planning, implementation and evaluation potential of this approach. Using real-life case studies, Kate illustrated how the Person-Based Approach can be used to optimise behaviour change interventions for patients and healthcare practitioners, helping to ensure that interventions are engaging and effective for all ages and abilities.  

Delegates were invited to experience interactive activities from the Person-Based Approach including key tools such as developing guiding principles to inform intervention planning, and using the table of changes – a systematic process for facilitating rapid decision-making during intervention development.

Kate also delivered a presentation within the symposium, Benefits and challenges of collaboration in community-based research: person-based approaches and public, and patient involvement.

“Using the person-based approach to disseminate behaviour change interventions” (Authors: Kate Morton1, Katherine Bradbury1, Rebecca Band1, Laura Dennison1, Richard McManus2, Paul Little1 & Lucy Yardley1.

The talk demonstrated how the person-based approach can be used in the dissemination of behaviour change interventions via workshop activities with patient and public involvement representatives, HCPs and policy makers. The importance of involving these key stakeholders is an important step in the journey towards successfully addressing behavioural challenges and implementing an effective intervention.
