Demonstrate an understanding of Behaviour Change Techniques
Assess the value of Behaviour Change Science to antimicrobial stewardship implementation in the learner's own location
Assess current evidence for the effectiveness of behavior change to healthcare improvement
Apply behaviour change theory to the identification of barriers and facilitators to change and intervention options
Interpret behaviour: define in behavioural terms; select target behaviours; specify target behaviours and identify what needs to change
Hospital healthcare delivery is complex with changing priorities and demands. Improvements are required but how can we ensure they are delivered. Understanding behaviour is essential for change. This course builds on Week 5 of Antimicrobial Stewardship: Managing Antibiotic Resistance but is not a prerequisite for taking this course.
How can social science help improvement?
Understand who would do what, differently, to which patients, that would lead to improved outcomes.
Identify barriers and facilitators to change.
Use frameworks from social science to design interventions for improvement.
This course is designed for those involved in healthcare improvement, and will be of particular interest to members of Antimicrobial Stewardship Committees and team leads.
