Are the stages of change relevant for the development and implementation of a web-based tailored alcohol intervention? A cross-sectional study
BMC Public Health, 05/31/2012Schulz DN et al.
Stage–matched interventions may be useful to encourage people to reduce their alcohol intake. Different factors seem to be important for people in different motivational stages. Longitudinal studies are needed to determine whether these factors also predict stage transition. The intervention could be optimized by tailoring the feedback messages more precisely to the needs of people in different motivational stages, for example by applying the different processes of change.
