Natural Experiments Methods
Health and Wellbeing Research Methods Seminar Series Three Spring 2017
Presenter: Dr Andrew Cook, Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Fellow in Health Technology Assessment, Associate Director of Southampton CTU
Natural experimental methods for evaluation of population health interventions have been gathering interest over the last few years. Not uncommonly randomisation of a population level intervention is either impractical or impossible, so if we’re going to learn more about such intervention we’re going to have to look at them with different tools. In this session we’ll look at how the NIHR Public Health Research programme has commissioned the evaluation of natural experiments, and what the programme is likely to be looking for in future.
Chair: Professor Geoffrey Meads, Professor of Health Sciences Research, HAWRG
This third methods series will continue to showcase recent research projects and examine methodologies currently used in health and wellbeing research. It will enable researchers to explore critical challenges in research and knowledge exchange, sharing expertise and forging connections that will support the development of future projects across a wide range of themes. All welcome and please feel free to bring your lunch with you. Please reserve your place for any or all of the sessions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org indicating which session/s you would like to attend.
