The development and evaluation of methods are an integral part of intervention research, which includes research designs, development and testing of instruments and analytical aspects which have the potential to do justice to the subject matter of intervention research within the working group.
In the working group “care interventions”, intervention research means all phases of development and evaluation of complex interventions. They contain:
- identification, description and quantification of relevant health care problems and phenomena
- Identification and evaluation of evidence of existing interventions
- Theoretically guided development of new interventions and adaptation of nationally and internationally existing interventions
- Modelling and piloting of interventions
- Evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions
- Process evaluations of the implementation of interventions in the daily routine
