Developing complex interventions: LifeGuide and the Person-Based Approach
The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford is holding a workshop on LifeGuide and the Person-Based Approach to intervention development for those interested in developing behaviour change interventions.
The workshop will be led by Professor Lucy Yardley and the LifeGuide research group. The morning workshop will focus on using the open source LifeGuide software to develop web-based interventions.
LifeGuide is a free-to-use tool that allows intervention developers with no experience of programming to create interactive digital interventions to support behaviour change.
This workshop is suitable for researchers of all levels who would like to learn more about the potential for using LifeGuide to create their own digital intervention.

The afternoon workshop will focus on how to implement the Person-Based Approach (PBA) to intervention development. This approach can:
Help researchers to develop an in-depth understanding of the perspectives of people who will use the intervention
Identify how the intervention will address key behavioural issues within the specific context of these users
Enhance the persuasiveness, feasibility and relevance of interventions through using qualitative research at each stage of intervention development
We will demonstrate how the PBA can be incorporated with evidence and theory-based approaches to enhance uptake, adherence and outcomes in digital and non-digital interventions.
This workshop is suitable for people who are new to the PBA, or those who would like to know more about how to use it in practice.
Attendance is free, and you are welcome to attend just the morning or afternoon workshop, or both.
