Developing and Evaluating Complex Public Health Interventions
24 - 28 Jun
Glamorgan Building, Cardiff University
Brief Overview of the Course:
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.
It will also provide you with a working knowledge of the key frameworks and methodologies currently used to evaluate complex interventions. Teaching will be delivered by experts in the field of public health evaluation, including Dr Graham Moore, (programme lead for complex intervention methodology and Deputy Director of DECIPHer) and Professor Laurence Moore (Director MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit) and you will learn about how to work with other scientists, policy-makers, practitioners and the public to apply for funding to pilot and evaluate the effectiveness of complex interventions.
