School health promotion research by SHTAC to be presented at the second Public Health Science conference, London

Published: 26 November 2013

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 ‘Public health science: A national conference dedicated to new research in public health' on the 29th November at University College London, based on an 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 gives the results of a systematic review of the effectiveness and processes of teacher training to promote health in schools. The review included a systematic map of the key characteristics of 170 studies, followed by a detailed synthesis of a sub-set of 20 studies focusing on initial teacher training.

The conference will showcase work spanning all aspects of public health and using a full range of methodological approaches. Peer-reviewed abstracts from the conference will be published online in The Lancet.

Full details of this research project can be found in Public Health Research, one of the suite of open access journals in the NIHR Journals Library.
