Using a program logic model to map how the intervention will meet your objectives

Program logic models are often used for planning community health programs; using one may be a helpful tool to map out the interventions required to meet program objectives. Various interventions will be needed to target multiple levels of the system. For example, an intrapersonal level target for change (e.g. changes to behaviour, knowledge, skills, and attitudes) will require interventions such as education sessions or skill development sessions. To help create an environment that will support sustained changes to new knowledge or behaviours learned, targeting a change in a policy may also be warranted. Table 1 below provides a snapshot of a range of possible interventions to influence various socio-ecological system levels. For an example of the use of multiple interventions to target various system levels refer to Example 6 - Reflecting on information gathered.
