The 2023 edition of the Swiss PhD Platform in Nursing Science Education (SPINE) Summer School is centered around the topic of "Designing Behavior Change Interventions in Healthcare".
The 2023 SPINE Summer School will bring international scholars and PhD students together to learn designing behavior change interventions in healthcare. The Summer School 2023 will be held in Lausanne and offers a mix of lectures and active group work led by senior researchers from different fields, formative feedbacks from peers and experienced researchers to foster interaction and critical thinking.
This year summer school introduces participants to key behavioural science tools and demonstrates how they interlink to guide the development and implementation of behaviour change interventions. Thesetools are known collectively as the ‘BCW toolkit’ and include:
The course will also build participants’ knowledge in other methodologies such as ‘co-design’ to demonstrate how to blend these methodologies together and further tailor behaviour change interventions.
The 2023 Summer School is a 4-day intensive course including lectures and group work. The course will be taught in English. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their own research project.
Registration is possible via this link until June 30th 2023. A recent 2-page CV and a copy of your higher degree or letter from your PhD supervisor are required.
