School health promotion

Results of a recently completed SHTAC research project on effective teacher training to promote health and well-being in schools will be presented at a conference showcasing UK public health research.

Researchers from SHTAC will be presenting a poster at a public health science conference based on a recently completed NIHR Public Health Research programme-funded project investigating the barriers and facilitators to effective teacher training to promote health and well-being in schools. The presentation discusses some of the key barriers and facilitators identified from a questionnaire and interview survey of teacher training providers in England.

The conference, ‘Public health science: A national conference dedicated to new research in public health' is organised by the Royal Society of Medicine, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the National Heart Forum, and medical journal The Lancet. It aims to showcase multi-disciplinary research activity across all aspects of public health and inclusive of all methodological approaches, with a special focus on the intersection between public health science and policy. Peer-reviewed abstracts from the conference will be published online in The Lancet.
