Behaviour change and complex interventions: design and evaluation
Registration /tea and coffee
Welcome by Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology, UCL
10am-1pm - break at 11.30am for 10 mins
Behaviourial Interventions: an introductions to the Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) for engineering better behavioural interventions, led by Linda Collins, Pennsylvania State University.
Behavioral interventions, for example, interventions aimed at helping people to quit using tobacco or other drugs, increase their physical activity, lose weight, or overcome depression, play an important role in public health. In this half-day workshop Linda Collins will describe an alternative framework for building and evaluating behavioral interventions.
2pm-5pm - break at 3.15pm for 10 mins
Missing data: analysis and design, led by John W. Graham, Pennsylvania State University.
John Graham will present a sketch of missing data theory, including descriptions of normal-model multiple imputation (MI) and maximum likelihood methods. He will discuss attrition and nonignorable missingness, emphasizing the need for longitudinal diagnostics and for reducing the uncertainty about the missing data mechanism under attrition.
Members of UCL's Behaviour Change community respond to the two workshops:
Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology and Director of Tobacco Studies, Health Behaviour Research Centre, UCL
Henry Potts, Senior Lecturer, Centre for Health Informatics & Multiprofessional Education (CHIME), UCL
Chair: Professor Susan Michie
