Tailoring: what's in a name? Health Education Research has taken a lead in publishing findings from the recent wave of studies reporting the effects of tailored health education interventions. However, in this journal and elsewhere, there has been considerable variation in what is meant by the descriptor `tailored'. As a growing number of health education researchers and practitioners have added the language of tailoring to their vocabulary and the possibility of tailoring to their repertoire of intervention methods, it is increasingly important that the field provide a clear definition for tailoring and seek to standardize related terminology. We would like to suggest that tailoring be defined as follows: Any combination of information or change strategies intended to reach one specific person , based on characteristics that are unique to that person, related to the outcome of interest, and have been derived from an individual assessment . ( Kreuter et al ., 1999a , b ) This definition highlights the two features of a tailored health promotion intervention that distinguish it from other commonly used approaches: (1) its collection of messages or strategies is intended for a particular person rather than a group of people and (2) these messages or strategies are based on individual-level factors that are related to the health or behavioral outcome of interest. Our rationale is as follows. The word tailor comes from the Latin word talea meaning `to cut'. Its common usage today is to make or adapt to fit a particular purpose—as in tailor-made clothing. Although we have found no uses of the term tailoring in the published literature which betray this general meaning, there are clearly different interpretations and operational definitions of the concept. Appropriately, most authors describe tailoring as a process of specially creating intervention materials or activities. The details of that process typically fall into one of two … (Full Text of this Article) « Previous | Next Article » Table of Contents This Article Health Educ. Res.
