Life Guide Intro Soton Jan 09 Blue

  1. 1. Update on the LifeGuide - new software that allows YOU to create internet-delivered interventions! Behavioural scientists: Lucy Yardley Susan Michie Judith Joseph Leanne Morrison Administrator: Victoria Hayter Computer scientists: Dave de Roure Gary Wills Mark Weal Jonathon Hare Adrian Osmond Lisha Chen-Wilson Prins Butt Joe Price Ash Smith
  2. 2. Advantages of the LifeGuide <ul><li>Current situation: most internet-delivered behavioural interventions are programmed individually – and then you are stuck with whatever you have created! </li></ul>Developing software to allow researchers to flexibly create and modify interventions will: a) have immediate pragmatic benefits b) create the potential for more rapid and powerful development of behavioural science
  3. 3. Pragmatic benefits of the LifeGuide <ul><li>Improve cost-effectiveness of research – eliminate duplication of programming </li></ul><ul><li>Improve access to internet-based intervention research (e.g. to students, junior researchers) </li></ul><ul><li>Speed up modification and evaluation cycle, rapidly optimise intervention </li></ul>
  4. 4. The scientific potential of the LifeGuide <ul><li>Each modification/evaluation cycle tests theories on which intervention components are based </li></ul><ul><li>Networks of researchers can </li></ul><ul><li>a) share intervention components </li></ul><ul><li>b) collaboratively collect much larger datasets allowing mediation and moderation analyses of effects of intervention components </li></ul>
  5. 5. Longer-term scientific potential of the LifeGuide <ul><li>Foundation for a future ‘population laboratory’; </li></ul><ul><li>semantically enriched, adaptive grid using automatic data collection to continuously model/refine interventions </li></ul>
  6. 6. Planned work <ul><li>Overlapping phases: </li></ul><ul><li>Co-design and software development </li></ul><ul><li>Pilot evaluation and software modification </li></ul><ul><li>Substantive tests: intervention studies carried out in collaboration with user network </li></ul><ul><li>Dissemination (throughout) </li></ul>
  7. 7. Basis for co-design of software <ul><li>workshops throughout development– expert and junior researchers, different disciplines </li></ul><ul><li>internet consultations with networks of behavioural researchers </li></ul><ul><li>systematic search of literature and internet to identify all techniques used for delivery of PC-based interventions </li></ul>
  8. 8. Core components of effective behavioural interventions <ul><li>1. Delivering advice, ‘tailored’; </li></ul><ul><li>use ‘diagnostic’ questions to select relevant advice from extensive expert resources </li></ul><ul><li>2. Providing longitudinal support, e.g. </li></ul><ul><li>plans, reminders </li></ul><ul><li>progress monitoring </li></ul><ul><li>progress-relevant feedback </li></ul><ul><li>social support (therapist, family, peers etc.) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Planned initial functionality of LifeGuide <ul><li>1. Delivering tailored advice </li></ul><ul><li>2. Providing longitudinal support, e.g. </li></ul><ul><li>reminders (e.g. automated emails) </li></ul><ul><li>planning, progress monitoring (e.g. longitudinal graphing) </li></ul><ul><li>progress-relevant feedback (tailored) </li></ul><ul><li>social support (e.g. emails, discussion board, peer comparisons, chat room sessions) </li></ul>
  10. 10. Planned initial functionality of LifeGuide <ul><li>3. Facilities for carrying out evaluations (RCTs) </li></ul><ul><li>screening and multi-user registration </li></ul><ul><li>stratified randomisation </li></ul><ul><li>automated baseline and follow-up assessment </li></ul><ul><li>monitoring throughput and adherence </li></ul><ul><li>output all data to Excel, SPSS etc. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Intervention manager: session data page with route map
  12. 12. Future of the LifeGuide <ul><li>added functionality as desired (open source) </li></ul><ul><li>added connectivity (text messaging, remote monitoring, NHS links) </li></ul><ul><li>different modalities (mobile computing) </li></ul><ul><li>adaptive capabilities </li></ul>
  13. 13. Where are we now? (9 months) <ul><li>Systematic review completed, several workshops held, email network established </li></ul><ul><li>First beta version of LifeGuide software completed, user testing commenced at workshops </li></ul><ul><li>First intervention completed (‘Internet Dr’), qualitative and quantitative piloting underway </li></ul><ul><li>Small number of collaborators now developing interventions using LifeGuide </li></ul><ul><li>Developing educational materials to accompany LifeGuide (introduction to creating internet interventions) </li></ul>
