Behaviour Change SIG - Person-Based Approach Workshop

Highfield Campus, University of Southampton
27th October 2016, 10:00am

The Behaviour Change SIG is holding a workshop on the Person-Based Approach (PBA) to intervention development for SAPC members interested in developing behaviour change interventions for primary care.

The Person-Based Approach offers a distinctive and systematic way of addressing the user experience of behaviour change interventions and can enhance the use of theory-based and evidence-based approaches to intervention development .This approach was developed by the University of Southampton’s LifeGuide research group, led by Prof Lucy Yardley, from insights gained from their experience of carrying out over a thousand interviews with users, while developing health and illness management interventions that have proven effective in trials involving tens of thousands of users.

The workshop will be held at the University of Southampton on Thursday 27th October from 10am-4pm. The event is free to all SAPC members and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Please contact Sarah Tonkin-Crine ( or Ingrid Muller ( for more information.
