A systems approach to intervention development: The Physical Activity, social ConnectednESs and healthy ageing (PACES) Study
In this webinar Kathryn Skivington will briefly summarise the updated MRC/NIHR Framework for Developing and Evaluating Complex Interventions, focussing particularly on the need to discuss complexity and systems thinking more explicitly in the context of development and evaluation of interventions. She will then introduce the PACES study (Physical Activity, Social Connectedness and Healthy Ageing), and briefly talk about applying a systems approach to intervention development. Emily Long will provide some further detail on one aspect of the PACES study: Social Network Analysis, and will discuss methods used as well as reflect upon its usefulness for intervention development.
