Multidisciplinary research

SHTAC will be presenting its research on preventing sexually transmitted infections in young people, and on effective teacher training to promote health, at the launch of the Population Health University Strategic Research Group on November 8th.

The University of Southampton has established a number of multidisciplinary research groups known as USRGs (University Strategic Research Groups) to develop cross-faculty, multidisciplinary initiatives. The Population Health USRG is one of 11 such groups and is focused on improving health and ensuring a more equitable distribution of health and well-being within and between countries. It will be formally launched on November 8th at Southampton General Hospital with a seminar presentation from Professor Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen.

SHTAC will be presenting three posters at the event. Two of the posters examine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of behavioural interventions to prevent sexually transmitted infections with young people, based on research conducted in collaboration with the EPPI-Centre, London. The third poster presents emerging results from a recently completed project investigating the barriers and facilitators to effective teacher training to promote health and well-being in schools. This project showcases multidisciplinary research within the University of Southampton, through collaboration between SHTAC, Primary Care and Population Health, and Southampton Education School, as well as national collaboration with the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education at Anglia Ruskin University.
