Altering environment, stimuli and apparatus to change behaviour

The BHRU carried out a systematic scoping review of empirical evidence, and related conceptual material, to identify the effects of choice architecture interventions in micro-environments on diet, physical activity, alcohol and tobacco-related behaviours. The study found that public health interventions using choice architecture had failed to produce a prior clear definition of its application. With this in mind the researchers set about producing a definition which was derived from evidence alongside a typology which can serve as foundations for future research.
