Developing internet-based health behaviour change interventions
Digital technologies are a popular means of delivering health behaviour interventions since they have the potential to increase the reach of an intervention and provide ‘tailored’ advice based on the specific needs and characteristics of the user, at a time and place convenient to them. However, the development of digital interventions is often restricted by the need to programme each intervention individually – once programmed they cannot be easily modified. The LifeGuide is open source software that allows researchers and health professionals with no programming skills or resources to flexibly create, modify, deliver, and evaluate their own digital interventions. This workshop will introduce the LifeGuide software, present examples of the diverse range of features and components of digital interventions that can be created using the LifeGuide, and explain how the LifeGuide can be used to trial and evaluate interventions. We will provide an interactive demonstration of the LifeGuide software and describe what it is like to use LifeGuide from the researcher’s perspective. The future of digital interventions will also be discussed, including demonstration of how we can capitalise on Smartphone technology and virtual social networks to support behaviour change. The workshop will end with an opportunity for participants to ask questions and discuss the issues raised throughout the workshop.
