Notice Abstract

Invitation to Tender - Good Help: Research on behavioural and social approaches in health Nesta is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation to commission research to understand what evidence-based behavioural and social approaches to health behaviour change exist, and what factors have contributed to their success or failure when applied in real settings. Share We want to explore whether people are more likely to reach their health goals if they experience ‘good help’ that draws on an understanding of: •Motivation and purpose - connecting people to what matters to them •Confidence to act - creating opportunities for people to feel able to make change •Social circumstances - understanding people’s lives (e.g. living and working conditions, communities and cultures), and the opportunities and barriers to change. This approach to ‘good help’ is not limited to one-to-one interactions in health services, it can be embedded in non-medical and community settings, groups and peer support, written materials and communications, technology, and environmental design. We are interested in exploring the practice of ‘good help’ through multiple channels. We are looking to answer the following questions: •What key health policies, interventions, or programmes exist that have explicitly included an understanding of behavioural and social science? •Where and at what scale have they been successfully implemented in practice? How did they measure success? What do we know about the practical, systemic and cultural factors that enabled their success? •Where have relevant policies or evidence-based practices failed to be mainstreamed? What practical, systemic and cultural factors got in the way? We are working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and British Heart Foundation, so we are also interested in exploring the evidence and people’s experiences of cancer care and recovery from heart or circulatory events. The total value of the input provided by the research partner is estimated to be approximately £40,000 (excluding VAT).

Invitation to Tender - Good Help: Research on behavioural and social approaches in health

Nesta is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and the British Heart Foundation to commission research to understand what evidence-based behavioural and social approaches to health behaviour change exist, and what factors have contributed to their success or failure when applied in real settings.

We want to explore whether people are more likely to reach their health goals if they experience ‘good help’ that draws on an understanding of:

•Motivation and purpose - connecting people to what matters to them

•Confidence to act - creating opportunities for people to feel able to make change

•Social circumstances - understanding people’s lives (e.g. living and working conditions, communities and cultures), and the opportunities and barriers to change.

This approach to ‘good help’ is not limited to one-to-one interactions in health services, it can be embedded in non-medical and community settings, groups and peer support, written materials and communications, technology, and environmental design. We are interested in exploring the practice of ‘good help’ through multiple channels.

•Where have relevant policies or evidence-based practices failed to be mainstreamed? What practical, systemic and cultural factors got in the way?
