This talk will describe how we applied the iterative person-based approach to optimise the development of an online intervention aimed at reducing sedentary time in community dwelling older adults. First, I will introduce the overall aims of this programme of research, which will trial online support for physical and cognitive activities to maintain cognitive function in 10,000 older people with and 10,000 older people without age-associated cognitive decline. I will describe the intervention development and discuss how we applied a ‘think aloud’ methodology to elicit feedback from members of the target user group to help maximise the acceptability, usability and persuasiveness of the intervention. I will explain how this will be used for refining the web-based intervention content and explain the subsequent process of prototyping a fully-functioning version of the intervention using other in-depth qualitative research methods such as diaries and retrospective interviews to further enhance the final intervention.
