Mid-level (or mid-range) theory rests between a project-level theory of change and grand theory. The specification and testing of mid-level theories help support the generalisability and transferability of study findings. This talk adopted the trans-theoretical model of behaviour change to apply mid-level theory to the analysis of two sets of interventions: the adoption of health behaviour, and promoting evidence-based policy change.
