Evaluating Complex Public Health Interventions
- Evaluating Complex Public Health Interventions
(14 - 16 June)
Brief Overview of the Course
The aim of this course is to 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 evaluation, including Professor Laurence Moore, and you will 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.
Who is it for?
Academics, practitioners and policymakers interested in the development and evaluation of complex public health interventions. No prior knowledge is assumed.
What will I learn?
- The MRC framework for evaluating complex interventions
- The RE-AIM framework for public health intervention
- MRC process evaluation guidance
- Pilot trials and feasibility studies
- Randomised controlled trials (RCTs), including pragmatic, “realist” and policy trials
- Natural experiments and data linkage
- How to secure funding for evaluating complex interventions
While not a pre-requisite, the short course on “Developing Complex Public Health Interventions” is designed to prepare you with an understanding of the rationale for complex interventions and skills in logic model development, which is likely to be beneficial prior to this course (but is not essential).
There will be no pre-reading required for this course, and all course materials/hand-outs will be provided at the start of the course.
