Behaviour Change

Looking around the NICE website I notice they’ve produced guidance on behaviour change which you can get here.

They highlight the neeed to:

Plan carefully interventions and programmes aimed at changing behaviour, taking into account the local and national context and working in partnership with recipients. Interventions and programmes should be based on a sound knowledge of community needs and should build upon the existing skills and resources within a community. 

Equip practitioners with the necessary competencies and skills to support behaviour change, using evidence-based tools. (Education providers should ensure courses for practitioners are based on theoretically informed, evidence based best practice.)

Evaluate all behaviour change interventions and programmes, either locally or as part of a  larger project. Wherever possible, evaluation should include an economic component.

There’s a slide set that goes with the guidance that may be of interest:
