The event also included the launch of three new, practical tools developed by the Behavioural Science Unit.
Tool 3: Behavioural Diagnosis – Mapping insights and selecting intervention functions will help you to prioritise barriers and facilitators to target using your behavioural insights, before moving onto to select appropriate intervention functions.
Tool 4: Behavioural Diagnosis – Selecting implementation types will help you to consider which implementation types will be most appropriate to help deliver your intervention.
Behaviour Discovery Tool – The online Discovery Tool can be used to explore how to better understand and influence behaviours that may be at play in your public health issue and provides a 'takeaway report' that gives you practical next steps and bite sized advice.
