Fuse led Behaviour Change Masterclass

Behaviour change has become one of the most prominent topics of discussion within academic and lay circles in recent times.

This masterclass, led by experts from Fuse, will cover issues relevant to interventions to change various behaviours related to health and wellbeing, inequality, and sustainability. It will provide practical guidance for developing, implementing and evaluating behaviour change interventions in your area of interest.

This course will cover issues relevant to interventions to change behaviours:

  • Using theory to guide intervention development
  • Assessing and maximising fidelity of treatment
  • Assessing what works and for who.


  • Introduction to behavioural science
  • Behavioural analysis and behavioural diagnosis
  • Methodological considerations for intervention development
  • Methods of intervention testing and evaluation
  • Inequalities in health and behaviour change
  • The unintended consequences of behaviour change interventions
  • Engaging the public and differing specialities in the design and implementation of behaviour change interventions (co-production).
