Designing an Intervention

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter focuses on the design phase of the behavioral intervention research model. Once a problem is identified and understood, it is time to find or develop an intervention that may address the problem. A theory or a conceptual model often informs the hypothesized solution for a problem. Thus, this chapter also covers the purposes of theories and conceptual models and the differences between the two concepts. Finally, the chapter addresses the issues to be considered in the design of interventions for research in hospice and palliative care, focusing on the different settings where palliative care is delivered.
