Another way of establishing preventive measures is by taking a more behavioural approach. The most well-known method that takes this path is ‘Intervention Mapping’. It comes down to establishing injury risks and possible preventive methods, after which the researcher sits down with the end-users to discuss the steps that need to be taken. The big plus of such a method is that the end-users are involved in the process of making the preventive measures accepted and tailored to the field. The downside is that potential important risk factors are not taken into consideration while the end-users do not see these fit. In short, this is an intricate process that provides new ways of looking at injury prevention. This chapter teaches which steps need to be taken in this approach and which pitfalls one should be aware of.
