The TIPPME intervention typology for changing environments to change behaviour

Reflecting interest in concepts of ‘nudging’ and ‘choice architecture’, there is increasing research and policy attention on altering aspects of the small-scale physical environment, such as portion sizes or product positioning, to change health-related behaviour. In a new paper, published in Nature Human Behaviour, we introduce a new framework we have developed: the Typology of Interventions in Proximal Physical Micro-Environments (TIPPME).

This provides a way to classify and describe an important class of interventions to change selection, purchase and consumption of food, alcohol and tobacco. This has the potential to benefit both researchers and policymakers through facilitating both the synthesis of cumulative evidence about the effects of interventions (including clearer reporting), and the identification and discussion of a broader range of interventions to be developed and evaluated.
