In 2005, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) was asked by the Department of Health to develop guidance on the effectiveness of different approaches and models aimed at changing knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour, at individual, community and population level. This was in the context of the Government's national strategy — Choosing Health — that emphasized the role and responsibility of individuals in making healthier choices, within a supportive environment, across different sectors of society. This chapter describes the theories used to provide the conceptual framework for the development of the guidance, sets out the guidance development process, discusses the range and nature of evidence considered, and outlines the areas covered by the recommendations.

Keywords:   Clinical Excellence, health policy, public health, Choosing Health, guidance development
