About this Event

The Health Behaviour Change Research Group at NUI Galway is delighted to announce that registration is now open for a free mini-series of expert webinars. Feel free to register for one or both of these exciting and practical webinars.

Expert Webinar 1 - Normalisation Process Theory as a tool for implementation research: from understanding to measuring.

Date: 10/11/2020

Time: 15:00 – 16:30

Facilitators: Prof Tracy Finch, Prof Tim Rapley, and Dr Tom Sanders, Northumbria University

Outline & objectives:

Normalisation Process Theory (NPT) is a theory of implementation that explains how new practices become embedded through collaborative work. It is applied extensively in health care intervention research. In this webinar, the facilitators will illustrate ways of using NPT to think through, understand and assess implementation, using qualitative and quantitative approaches.At the end of this webinar, participants will have:1) An introductory overview of NPT

2) Understanding of its use in qualitative research

3) Insights through an in-depth example of NPT in a qualitative study

4) Introduction to the NoMAD survey and quantitative measurement based on NPT

Expert Webinar 2 – Barriers and enablers to behaviour using the Theoretical Domains Framework: An introduction to the practical applications of the TDF. Date: 17/11/2020

Time: 14:00 – 15:30

Facilitator: Dr Andrea Patey, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute

Outline & objectives:

The Theoretical Domains Framework (TDF) was originally developed to investigate influences on health service provider behaviour in relation to the implementation of evidence-based recommendations. Since its development, this framework has been widely used across behaviour change research. At the end of this interactive, informal, collaborative (even over the internet!) webinar participants will have:

1) An overview of the TDF and understanding of the domain definitions

2) Understanding of practical approaches to using the TDF to identify barriers and enablers of behaviour (Quantitative & Qualitative approaches)

3) Hands on experience with detailing behaviour under investigation

4) Hands on experience with understanding the domains (question development and coding)
