Glamorgan Building, Cardiff University

The aim of the course is to provide you with an introduction to the socio-ecological model of health and how it can be used as a framework for designing public health improvement interventions. You will also learn about different research methods used for developing new interventions, how to develop an intervention ‘logic model’, and how DECIPHer works with policy-makers, health professionals and the public to co-produce interventions.

03 - 04 Jul

The theme for the Annual Conference is 'Civil Society and Participation' and it promises to provide colleagues from across the academic, policy, public, private, and third sectors with the opportunity to network and discuss cutting edge inter-disciplinary research from Wales and beyond that focuses on approaches adopted in a wide range of policy areas.
