Amgylchiadau A Sefydliadau Iach

Bydd y rhaglen hon yn datblygu ac yn gwerthuso dulliau system gyfan o wella iechyd poblogaeth a deall sut caiff y dulliau eu rhoi ar waith.  Yn hanesyddol, gwnaed y rhan helaeth o’n gwaith mewn ysgolion ac mae’n seiliedig ar fodel Ysgolion Hybu Iechyd, Sefydliad Iechyd y Byd. Mae’r model hwn yn cysylltu agweddau lluosog ar fywyd ysgol, gan gynnwys y cwricwlwm, yr amgylchedd ffisegol a’r amgylchedd cymdeithasol, ac mae’n cysylltu â theuluoedd a’r gymuned leol. Mae gennym ymchwilwyr sy’n gweithio gydag ysgolion ar amrediad eang o feysydd iechyd â blaenoriaeth, gan gynnwys iechyd meddwl a lles, bwyta’n iach, atal ysmygu, atal camddefnyddio alcohol, iechyd rhywiol a pherthnasoedd cymdeithasol iach.

Yn ogystal, mae DECIPHer yn arwain y Rhwydwaith Ymchwil Iechyd mewn Ysgolion (SHRN), sy’n dwyn ynghyd ysgolion, ymchwilwyr â sefydliadau allweddol ym maes polisi ac ymarfer, i wella ansawdd a lefel yr ymchwil i wella iechyd yn yr ysgol. Mae’r rhwydwaith wedi cefnogi dros 50 o astudiaethau ymchwil, gwerth dros £25 miliwn.

Yn y dyfodol, bydd gwaith yn ymwneud â lleoliadau addysg yn canolbwyntio ar addysg gynradd, uwchradd a phellach, a gwaith gydag Unedau Cyfeirio Disgyblion. Bydd ffocws penodol ar iechyd meddwl, yn cyd-fynd â pholisi Llywodraeth Cymru a blaenoriaethau UKRI. Bydd datblygu carfan genedlaethol Cymru o fewn SHRN yn rhoi cyfleoedd i ddatblygu astudiaethau epidemiolegol. Er y bydd ein ffocws cychwynnol ar leoliadau addysg, bydd ein fframweithiau a’n dulliau damcaniaethol yn symud i gefnogi astudiaethau ymchwil sy’n mabwysiadu ymagwedd system gyfan yn y gweithle ac mewn amgylchiadau cymunedol.
