Developing and Evaluating Complex Public Health Interventions Discounted

The aim of this 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.
