Abstract Purpose:<\b>
Behaviour change interventions are complex, covering a large variety of techniques, delivery, exposures, contexts, behaviours and mechanisms of action. Reporting of such interventions varies greatly in quality. There is a need to synthesise this complex body of evidence to enable large-scale impact on behaviour change. Aims: The Human Behaviour-Change Project (HBCP) is bringing together behavioural scientists, computer scientists and system architects to synthesise the evidence on behaviour change, including physical activity interventions. This project aims to advance our understanding of what works in behaviour change. Physical activity and tobacco use are the first behaviour types being addressed. Method: 1) Develop an ‘ontology’ of behaviour change interventions: a structure of organised knowledge using a set of unified terms for entities and the relationships between them. We are using extensive literature reviews, annotations of published papers and expert consensus to generate this. 2) Use this ontology to build an Artificial Intelligence system to scan relevant literature, extract key information and synthesise it. 3) Develop an online, open-access user interface to interrogate this knowledge base. Results:<\b>
We have developed the top level of the Behaviour Change Intervention Ontology, containing 21 entities and 24 relationships. We are currently developing all sub-level entities of the Ontology. Tools for annotating, scanning and extracting published literature related to behaviour change are also being developed.Conclusions: This work will allow researchers, policy-makers and practitioners to answer specific questions about physical activity behaviour change, aiming to inform international intervention and strategy development. External funding details Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award (201,524/Z/16/Z).
