ARC-CSaP-PHResH Prevention Webinar: Strengthening Communities and Society for Collective Action: Recording and Presentations

This webinar was a collaboration between the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE) together with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) and the Population Health Research Hub East of England (PHResH EoE).

This webinar was the second in a series on prevention (see details of the first here), where we gained insights into the broad factors influencing the health of communities, new measures of evaluating population health, and ideas for behavioural interventions to improve health.

This challenge was viewed from a diverse range of perspectives to address questions including:

  • How is poverty and precarity experienced and in what ways does this influence the ability to have a good quality of life?
  • How should we engage and empower communities in prevention efforts?
  • How do we consider more holistic approaches to measuring success in prevention and wellbeing? What does success look like?
  • What assets as well as barriers exist within communities and how can behavioural interventions work with these to prevent poor health?
