Intervention development is an iterative, recursive process, and involvement of users and stakeholders is of upmost importance to produce interventions that are likely to be acceptable and effective. Health behaviour change interventions can be developed using several frameworks. Although different, these focus on the same core set of steps: analysing the behavioural issue and developing an intervention objective, causal modelling, defining intervention features, developing a logic model of change, developing materials and interface, empirical optimisation, outcome and process evaluation and, if successful, implementation. This chapter summarises these steps highlighting how users and stakeholders can be involved with practical examples.
