Intervention Mapping: Designing Theory-based and Evidence-based Interventions: This workshop focused on the introduction of Intervention Mapping, a protocol for the development of theory- and evidence-based health education & promotion programs. The emphasis was on applying the Intervention Mapping processes to the development of prevention programs. Participants were guided through a series of steps that taught them theory- and evidence-based program development.
Objectives: Course participants applied Intervention Mapping to selected prevention issues. As a result, participants were taught the skill of designing their own theory- and evidence-based prevention interventions.
Contents: Orientation to, and application of Intervention Mapping; orientation to prevention; approaches to using theory; prevention program case examples; review of theories used in health promotion.
