Module 2: Identify Intervention Options

This module focuses on finding and integrating interventions for different socio-ecological levels. There are illustrations, case examples and activities to help you examine the evidence, develop an integrated theoretical framework and plan for an adequate “dose” of intervention – that is, the proper quantity and quality of activity for what you’re trying to achieve.

We give four steps for identifying intervention options:

  1. Reviewing the evidence on possible interventions iStock_000005290281XSmall
  2. Developing an integrated theoretical framework
  3. Planning for the right quantity of intervention
  4. Planning for the right quality of intervention

1. Reviewing the evidence on possible interventions

  • Identify a variety of evidence for review.
  • Generate one or more suppositions, or hypotheses, about the best interventions for your situation.
  • Map how those interventions meet your objectives with a program-planning tool.

2. Developing an integrated theoretical framework

  • Identify the range of theories guiding the interventions.
  • Map the theoretical components of intervention pathways.

3. Planning for the right quantity of interventions.

  • What would be sufficient duration?
  • What would be sufficient intensity?
  • What would be sufficient reach?
  • How will you sustain the intervention?

4. Plan for right quality of interventions

  • What standards must you meet?
  • What are the most potent ingredients for change?
  • How will you ensure you include all the essential components?
  • Plan parameters for adjusting your intervention
