The aim of this five-day 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 intervention from DECIPHer and our collaborating institutions, including Welsh Government, University of Bristol, University of Exeter and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. You will also 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.
