Dr Emma Halliday, a Senior Research Fellow at Lancaster University and a member of LiLaC, talks to us about working in public health research.
Throughout the world we are seeing ageing populations and an increase in the number of people living in cities.
This project’s goal is to begin to redress the marginalisation of race/ethnicity and migration within public health intervention and health inequalities research in England.
Getting research evidence to inform practice and policy is neither straight-forward nor guaranteed.
This research will evaluate the new prioritisation framework tool informed by SPHR research and evaluate its impact on local authority decision-making when it comes to investment and disinvestment decisions.
This project will support Public Health England North in taking forward and delivering on the research implications of the 2014 PHE commissioned ‘Due North’ report into health inequalities and the North South health divide.
Researchers conducted a number of linked studies to improve the understanding of how evidence is understood, accessed, used and valued by decision makers working beyond health areas, in sectors that potentially impact upon people’s health and wellbeing.
This project assessed which type-2 diabetes screening programmes are the most effective and provide value for money.
This project aims to support SPHR to increase the profile of, and access to the research evidence it has already produced that has potential to support local action to address health inequalities and to maximise the relevance of future research for this policy and practice agenda.
