This year the digital health research team at University of Southampton’s Centre for Clinical and Community Applications of Health Psychology is celebrating ten years of the LifeGuide research programme (www.lifeguideonline.org). This research programme was initiated by developing the unique LifeGuide software, which has enabled researchers to create, modify and adapt digital interventions quickly and efficiently, without needing input from programmers. Over the course of a decade of developing numerous interventions that have proved consistently engaging and effective (e.g. Little et al., 2013; Little et al., 2016; Little et al., 2015), we have come to realise that the most important output from this research for the wider research community is not the LifeGuide software (which will soon be superseded by newer technology) but our successful methods for intervention development. We refer to these methods as the ‘Person-Based Approach’ (PBA, Yardley, Morrison, Bradbury, & Muller, 2015) to intervention development, which we see as an essential complement to theory- and evidence-based approaches.

Abstract

This year the digital health research team at University of Southampton’s Centre for Clinical and Community Applications of Health Psychology is celebrating ten years of the LifeGuide research programme (www.lifeguideonline.org). This research programme was initiated by developing the unique LifeGuide software, which has enabled researchers to create, modify and adapt digital interventions quickly and efficiently, without needing input from programmers. Over the course of a decade of developing numerous interventions that have proved consistently engaging and effective (e.g. Little et al., 2013; Little et al., 2016; Little et al., 2015), we have come to realise that the most important output from this research for the wider research community is not the LifeGuide software (which will soon be superseded by newer technology) but our successful methods for intervention development. We refer to these methods as the ‘Person-Based Approach’ (PBA, Yardley, Morrison, Bradbury, & Muller, 2015) to intervention development, which we see as an essential complement to theory- and evidence-based approaches.
