The Behaviour Change Special Interest Group (SIG) has a specific focus on the wider public health workforce.

There are an estimated 15 million individuals who, through the course of their work, have the opportunity or ability to positively impact the public’s health, be it in terms of brief advice, signposting or leading a community-based initiative.

Through this SIG, RSPH is seeking to bring these individuals together in one forum to share best practice, learn from each other’s examples and contribute to key policy debates.

Chaired by Graham Rushbrook, Development Advisor and Lead Assessor, RSPH and Advisor, Public Health Advisory Committee (PHAC) of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), this group will provide access to up-to-date resources and research, opportunities to attend networking and learning events and influence government policy as a group with shared aims.

This Special Interest Group is open to all RSPH members with an interest in behaviour change. To join, please register your interest.

Aims of the group

  • Feeding into government consultations as a professional body
  • Sharing experiences, competencies and best practice
  • Organising occasional topical seminars and workshops
