The current taxonomy includes the determinants targeted, the specific practical applications, and the theory-based methods. The second generation taxonomy will include the determinants targeted, the practical applications, and the theory-based methods. The components of the taxonomy will be hierarchical, but the hierarchy will be based on the knowledge of the taxonomist rather than the expertise of the taxonomy user. More specifically, the hierarchy will be based on how the taxonomist might most meaningfully use the taxonomy, rather than how the user may have expertise in the field.
We have developed the original taxonomy. We are now involved in an international collaboration to develop a second generation taxonomy. It is timely that this collaboration include the behaviour change and health education communities, as well as researchers from elsewhere. The second generation taxonomy will provide much more detail and additional information than the current taxonomy. It will be more detailed in terms of the methods of behaviour change, and will specify the determinants targeted, the practical applications, and the theory-based methods that are associated with the determinants.
The taxonomy will be immediately useful to behaviour change researchers, intervention developers, and health education researchers, as well as those working in the fields of health education, health promotion, and public health. The taxonomy will provide a systematic method of understanding the interaction of the determinants, the practical applications, and the theory-based methods associated with each determinant. This understanding will assist in the design and development of health interventions, and also in the evaluation of health interventions. It will also facilitate the production of evidence-based health education, which is critical to the development and evaluation of evidence-based health interventions.
Public health is intertwined with every aspect of our daily lives. It is critical that all health professionals are well-versed in, and have a working understanding of, this broader system in which they live, work, and practice. Public health is inextricably tied to the education of health professionals and to the health of the population. This is especially true for those who work in the many areas of public health, including epidemiology and public health surveillance.
