In 2017 local authorities find themselves challenged by a variety of persistent and stubborn public health problems such as obesity, air pollution and alcohol-related harm. All take place within complex systems, with multiple factors operating over many decades in contexts that adapt and change over time.
This webinar explores why we need to think about these public health challenges in terms of complex systems and therefore use different evidence and develop new, more effective approaches to tackling them. This webinar will bring together practice and research perspectives to discuss how this thinking is used to design and evaluate population-level interventions differently to improve health.
This webinar will give those working in public health and local government the chance to:
- hear the latest thinking about how to approach population-level interventions to improve public health in local areas
- improve their understanding of complex systems approaches and build practical applications of that knowledge.
