Plain language[ edit ] In order to have a patient that understands health terms and can make proper health decisions, the language used by health professionals has to be at a level that others who are not in the medical field can understand.
Intervention Mapping is a protocol for developing effective behavior change interventions. A number of accessible papers introducing Intervention Mapping are freely available at the Effective Behavior Change website. The Summer Course will take place in Maastricht from July See this page for more information.
Intervention Mapping Summer Course Thoroughly revised and updated, Planning Health Promotion Programs provides a powerful, practical resource for the planning and development of health education and health promotion programs. In addition, the book has been redesigned to be more teachable, practical, and practitioner-friendly.
The book can be ordered here.

Each of the six steps of IM comprises several tasks each of which integrates theory and evidence. The completion of the tasks in a step creates a product that is the guide for the subsequent step. The completion of all of the steps serves as a blueprint for designing, implementing and evaluating an intervention based on a foundation of theoretical, empirical and practical information.
The six steps and related tasks of the IM process are: Conduct a needs assessment or problem analysis, identifying what, if anything, needs to be changed and for whom; Create matrices of change objectives by combining sub- behaviors performance objectives with behavioral determinants, identifying which beliefs should be targeted by the intervention; Select theory-based intervention methods that match the determinants into which the identified beliefs aggregate, and translate these into practical applications that satisfy the parameters for effectiveness of the selected methods; Integrate methods and the practical applications into an organized program; Plan for adoption, implementation and sustainability of the program in real-life contexts; Generate an evaluation plan to conduct effect and process evaluations.
The six steps of Intervention Mapping Intervention Mapping is a planning approach that is based on using theory and evidence as foundations for taking an ecological approach to assessing and intervening in health problems and engendering community participation. The key words in IM are planning, research and theory.
IM provides a vocabulary for program planning, procedures for planning activities, and technical assistance with identifying theory-based determinants and matching them with appropriate methods for change. Intervention Mapping is not a new theory or model; it is an additional tool for the planning and development of health promotion interventions.
It maps the path from recognition of a need or problem to the identification of a solution.
Although Intervention Mapping is presented as a series of steps, Bartholomew and colleagues see the planning process as iterative rather than linear. Program planners move back and forth between tasks and steps. The process is also cumulative: Each step is based on previous steps, and inattention to a particular step may lead to mistakes and inadequate decisions.
Logic Model of the Problem In Step 1, before beginning to actually plan an intervention, the planner assesses the health problem, its related behavior and environmental conditions, and their associated determinants for the at-risk populations.
This assessment encompasses two components: The product of this first step is a description of a health problem, its impact on quality of life, behavioral and environmental causes and determinants of behavior and environmental causes.
In Step 1, the planner completes the following tasks: Establish and work with a planning group Conduct a needs assessment to create a logic model of the problem Describe the context for the intervention, including the population, setting, and community State program goals Step 2: Program Outcomes and Objectives — Logic Model of Change Step 2 provides the foundation for the intervention by specifying who and what will change as a result of the intervention.
The product of Step 2 is a set of matrices of selected ecological levels i. In order to develop performance objectives beyond the individual, roles are identified at each selected ecological level.
Statements of what must be changed at each ecological level and who must make the change, are more specific intervention foci than are traditional program goals and objectives.The Community Guide glossary contains definitions of several terms and phrases related to Community Guide reviews and Task Force findings.
A Guide to Developing Health Promotion Programmes in Primary Health Care Settings iii Acknowledgements Thanks to all within the Ministry of Health for assistance in developing this guide. Heartfile is a non-profit NGO think tank with a focus on policy analysis and innovative solutions for improving health systems in Pakistan.
This book can both be used as a first time introduction to epidemiology and the most popular statistical methods employed in health research, but also for looking up things when you need it, since it is actually quite thorough on a lot of subjects in the field. Welcome. The ‘Making prudent healthcare happen’ resource has been designed to explain some of the key concepts behind prudent healthcare.
It captures perspectives of those working in or using health and social care services in Wales about what prudent healthcare means to them and its potential for Wales. Mental Health Promotion: Building an Economic Case is the third policy document in a series commissioned by NIAMH.
