Enrolment now closed.

In lieu of being able to deliver our usual in-person 5-day short course, we have developed a shorter online course focused on methodological innovations in the development, evaluation and adaptation of complex public health interventions.
The three half-day workshops provide a combination of introductory grounding in complexity and public health intervention with a deeper look at specialist topic areas of public involvement and new guidance for intervention adaptation.
The cost of this course will be £300. If you require an invoice, please raise a ‘purchase order number’ before booking. The course will take place on Microsoft Teams (you do not need to have an account).
Any questions, please email Zoe MacDonald: macdonaldz@cardiff.ac.uk.
