Well-being, Health and Communities (WHC)

Understanding multi-disciplinary perspectives on health and well-being, in partnership with policy and practice networks.

This pathway concerns multi-disciplinary perspectives on health and wellbeing often in partnership with policy and practice networks, including local authorities, voluntary organisation and NHS trusts, and increasingly decentralisation and devolution to communities.

The partnership has expertise on the following topics: inequalities, ageing, e-health, emergency care, obesity, modelling and economic evaluation, and cost-effectiveness of health policy interventions.

In addition, inclusion and resilience connections are made between health, employment, employability and work psychology in this pathway.
