The UKSBM is keen to support pre- and/or post-conference workshops at this year’s Annual Scientific Meeting in Oxford, in addition to those available at the ASM itself. Anyone interested in exploring the potential of holding a workshop before or after this year’s ASM should contact either Paul Aveyard or Amanda Lewis by the 29th of March 2013.
Guidance for preparing oral and poster presentations, as well as structured discussions and workshops for the 2012 UKSBM ASM are now online.
The UKSBM is delighted to announce that Professor Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology (University College London) will be the opening keynote speaker at this year’s UKSBM annual scientific meeting in Manchester (10-11 December 2012). Prof Michie is internationally recognised for her work in academic, healthcare and policy communities. Her work has contributed important advances to the study of behaviour change in relation to health, furthering our theoretical understanding of behaviour change and how to develop more effective interventions. Her work develops methods to advance the study of behaviour change e.g. for specifying the content and theoretical underpinning of interventions and for synthesising evidence. This is conducted in the domains of risky and preventive behaviours amongst the general population (e.g. smoking) and professional practice and implementation (e.g. hand hygiene).
She chairs the Society of Behavioral Medicine’s Special Interest Group in Theories and Techniques of Behaviour Change Interventions. She is co-Director of the UK’s National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training and provides consultancy to the UK Government and to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. She is on NICE’s (National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence) Public Health Interventions Advisory Group, its committee for Behaviour Change and on its Implementation Strategy Group. Her editorial work includes Editor of Implementation Science and Associate Editor of Annals of Behavioral Medicine.
Please note that Sir Michael Marmot is no longer able to deliver his keynote address owing to unforeseen circumstances.
