1 Stage 3: Linking BCTs to theory: excerpt from matrix of 35 BCTs x 11 domains of theoretical constructs Developing a Nomenclature for Behaviour Change Interventions Susan Michie PhD 1, Marie Johnston PhD 2, Charles Abraham PhD 3, Jill Francis PhD 2, Wendy Hardeman PhD 4, Martin Eccles MD 5 Diane Dixon PhD 6 1 UCL 2 Aberdeen University 3 Sussex University 4 Cambridge University 5 Newcastle University 6 Strathclyde University BACKGROUND We lack a shared language for describing the content, especially the active ingredients of behaviour change interventions. By contrast, biomedical interventions are precisely specified. In behaviour change interventions: the same technique may be described by different labels e.g. self-monitoring may be labeled daily diaries and the same labels may be applied to different techniques (e.g. behavioural counselling may involve educating patients or feedback, self-monitoring and reinforcement Resulting problems for Replicating effective interventions Synthesising evidence Understanding causal mechanisms Cumulative science of behaviour change Specifying an intervention requires clear descriptions of: Behaviour Change Techniques (BCTs) - replicable components of an intervention designed to alter or redirect causal processes that regulate behaviour i.e. the active ingredients - and Method of delivery including when, where, by whom the BCTs are delivered to the target person This poster describes work to date on developing a nomenclature for behaviour change techniques (BCTs) and describes planned future work. AIMS To develop a reliable method of specifying behaviour change techniques and then to: a) link behaviour change techniques to theory of behaviour change and b) specify the behaviours necessary to implement the behaviour change techniques. METHODS Stage 1 Identifying BCTs in a systematic review of behaviour change interventions to increase physical activity and healthy eating. Resulted in an initial list of 26 BCTs with definitions and demonstrating reliability (2 coders). 1 Stage 2 Extending list of BCTs by: a) systematic text-book search & b) expert brain storming. Generating definitions for BCTs from textbooks and dictionaries: 2 judges with 74.7% agreement on 53 BCTs. constructs Stage 3 Linking BCTs to theoretical constructs 3. Stage 4 Reframing BCTs operationally to specify behavioural competences required to implement the BCTs relevant to changing health behaviours. RESULTS For research to flourish and develop into an increasingly cumulative basic science, there are some fundamental requirements. It's essential to develop and use common shared tools and a common language, so that replication, and building on solid work becomes accepted practice and is valued." President APS Mischel the usage of the term cognitive behavior therapy varies widely and may include self-instructions... relaxation or biofeedback, development of coping strategies..goal setting. 2 Gatchel et al (p 606) Stage 1: Identifying BCTs in interventions to change physical activity and healthy eating inter-coder reliability.79 Stage 4: BCTs as behavioural competences 4 judges had 71.7% agreement across 385 judgements Examples shading = consensus knowledge skills capabilities consequences motivation goal self-monitoring contract reward graded task CONCLUSIONS Published descriptions of effective behaviour change interventions are not adequate for reliable replication – e.g. behavioural medicine researchers and practitioners report low confidence in their ability to replicate highly effective interventions for diabetes prevention 5 There is emerging international agreement that journals should require authors to provide good descriptions of behaviour change interventions before results of trials are published – (Workgroup for Intervention Development and Evaluation Research [WIDER]) 5. The lists and definitions developed are incomplete and relatively untested. More systematic work is necessary, involving a large international group of behaviour change experts. NEXT STAGES We have obtained funding from the UK Medical Research Council to invite: Behaviour Change Experts to be involved in a Delphi process to refine the BCT list and definitions thus creating a Preliminary Nomenclature and test it whether it improves the reliability of: reporting of interventions interpretation and coding of published interventions International Advisory Board to comment at each stage of the work and to be involved in dissemination Other interested individuals to join our mailing list to receive information about the project.
