SIPHER’s Policy Processes
SIPHER has eight tightly-interwoven WS, using a mix of qualitative and quantitative systems science:
To do this we have developed a novel approach that blends the strengths of different scientific disciplines and methods.
This includes work to develop a thorough understanding of partners’ policy priorities and processes, synthesis of existing data and evidence, new data analytics infrastructure, complex systems modelling, cost-benefit analysis and multi-criteria decision support. Each element of this work will draw on the other elements for a coherent research and engagement programme to tackle chronic disease and health inequalities.
We will showcase our work at regular events, presentations, newsletters and reports for academic, policy and lay audiences. All new methods, models, tools and research findings will be open access and made available on our website.
We are always keen to develop new links with interested research centres, local and national governments, as well as health- and social justice-focused charities and interest groups. We want to ensure our new methods and findings are helpful to everyone who may use them. Please get in touch!
