Video: Optimizing Behavioral Interventions
April 5, 2013
As part of the “Medicine: Mind the Gap” NIH Seminar Series, Methodology Center Director Linda Collins recently gave a talk at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Washington D.C. She discussed the multiphase optimization strategy (MOST) and how it can be used to optimize interventions for smoking cessation, drug abuse prevention, treatment of obesity, promotion of physical activity, and other health-related behaviors. The seminar is part of the NIH lecture series that explores issues at the intersection of research, evidence and clinical practice—areas in which conventional wisdom may be contradicted by recent evidence. The goal of the series is to engage the NIH community in thought-provoking discussions about their role in helping to guide today’s research. This high-resolution video provides an excellent introduction to MOST.
