Novel coronavirus (65) Behavioural science and Covid-19

1 March, 2020

Dear all

I thought you might be interested in this blog, authored by a Prof of Health Psychology, Professor Susan Michie of UCL, UK. Prof Michie is the creator of the Behaviour Change Wheel- a method for intervention development to support behaviour change.

In it, Prof Michie describes how we must invest in behavioural science to help us to understand how to support the behaviours likely to slow spread of the virus.

Best wishes
