We are very happy that you are interested in applying for this year's CREATE workshop at the EHPS conference in Padua. We have a slight change of format this year - because one of the core aims of CREATE is to foster exchange and collaborations among early career researchers, we will start with a networking activity 27 Aug 2017 (from the late afternoon onwards; details to follow), followed by 2 full workshop days on 28 and 29 Aug 2017. It promises to be 3 days of wonderful research insights into intervention mapping and fun socialising with your fellow early career researchers. We are excited to have you on board!
The workshop will focus on developing theory- and evidence-based interventions applied to health promotion and disease prevention. The emphasis of this workshop will be on applying the Intervention Mapping process. Intervention Mapping is a protocol for the design of health education & promotion programmes, guiding health promoters through a series of steps that will assist them in developing theory- and evidence-based programmes.
Objectives: Workshop participants will apply Intervention Mapping to selected public health problems. As a result, participants will be able to design their own effective theory- and evidence-based prevention intervention health problems in their personal work contexts. Participants may ask for consultations on their own projects.
Workshop format: Plenary sessions will cover the principles and processes of Intervention Mapping and include examples of health promotion programmes that have successfully applied the Intervention Mapping process. Small groups will discuss and apply the process to the selected health promotion topics.
