In Partnership with Practice

The Government’s White Paper, ‘Healthy Lives, Healthy People: Our strategy for public health in England’ (Nov 2010), was clear that public health evaluation and research will be critical in enabling future challenges to be met and opportunities realised.

In line with Government priorities, the School aims to enable the new public health system to develop into the future by

  • Narrowing the gap between the users and suppliers of research.
  • Increasing the evidence base for effective public health practice.
  • Undertaking applied translational research.
  • Considering local public health needs and evaluating innovative local practices with potential for wider population benefit.

SPHR’s ‘How do public health professionals view and engage with research?’ project examined two schemes aimed at enhancing collaboration between academics and practitioners to see
how these overcame known barriers to knowledge use.
