Intervention Mapping: Developing and Evaluating Theory - and Evidence-Based Programs for Health Education and Health Promotion
This course, already taught to more than 500 participants on four continents, demonstrates how Intervention Mapping (IM) is used to create effective, culturally sensitive interventions. Participants learn how to translate theory- and evidence-based research studies into disease prevention and health promotion programs using the IM step-by-step approach (which includes, conducting needs assessments; writing behavioral and learning outcomes; selecting and translating change theory and methods into program strategies and materials; and planning for program adoption, implementation, and evaluation). All participants receive a copy of Health Promotion Planning: An Intervention Mapping Approach, which explains IM and cites detailed case examples of IM's application to public health programs.
The course is designed for researchers, public health practitioners, community health planners, and students.
3 days (8 hours per day).
