Introduction

Teams at WMS are involved in a variety of research projects and trials focused on population and public health, including work looking at decreasing obesity, reducing heart disease and helping those affected by social anxiety and sleep deprivation.

Warwick Centre for Applied Health Research and Delivery (W-CAHRD)

cahrd

Warwick Centre for Applied Health Research and Delivery (CAHRD) is a global network bringing together individuals, disciplines and organisations to develop practical solutions to population health issues. One such project is Improving the health literacy of lay community health workers, which aims to ultimately lead to black African women being able to make the necessary positive decisions to improve their own and their children’s health.

Health Economics

healtheconomics

Members of the centre work on reports which inform NICE guidelines and clinical trials that directly guide future decisions on health care guidance. An example of this is the Infectious Disease Dynamic Modelling in Health Protection study which aims to provide a programme of dynamic and health economic modelling that will underpin opinions and advice on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions against infectious diseases in the UK.

Warwick Primary Care - Socwell

Warwick Primary Care works in this area through trials such as Socwell, which is a randomised controlled trial evaluating an internet self-help package for sub-clinical social anxiety and its effect on quality of life, mental wellbeing, depression and general anxiety.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

mhw

Mental Health and Wellbeing works in the area of Population and Public Health through the following themes:

Sleep, Health and Society

Studying the implications of sleep disturbances on quantity and quality of sleep and ensuing daytime sleepiness, and determinants of physical and mental ill-health and general wellbeing.

Cardiovascular Health

The main research interests of the group (led by Professor Francesco Cappuccio) are the prevention, detection and management of hypertension and its complications, and the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease.

Statistics & Epidemiology

stats

The Statistics and Epidemiology group develop and apply innovative statistical and epidemiological methods for population and public health research. The Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (WEMWBS) was one such development that enables the monitoring of mental wellbeing in the general population and the investigation of risk and protective factors.

We are also interested in the health and health-related behaviour of young people and the influence of schools on them, and developing research on the health risks and impacts from environmental changes (e.g. heatwaves, cold weather).

Warwick Evidence

Warwick Evidence team members work in this area through the reports they produce that inform NICE guidelines. The concepts and principles of population and public health underline their work.

Clinical Trials Unit

Our teams in the Clinical Trials Unit work within the area of population and public health by looking at different approaches before conducting trials to see if they will benefit patients, and/or reduce costs to the NHS.
