On 7th February, 100 colleagues joined the “Demystifying Public Health Research Workshop” with the Cheshire and Merseyside Public Health Research Hub and the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).
Dr Ifeoma Onyia, Director of Public Health (DPH) in Halton and lead DPH for research in Cheshire and Merseyside opened the session remarking that recent feedback from colleagues showed a gap in knowledge around public health research and the aim of the session was to increase the research culture in Public Health.
The workshop’s main presentation was by Seonaid Beddows from the NIHR and focused on identifying and addressing the barriers to research in local authority settings and delegates also had an opportunity to ask questions and connect with others to share knowledge and experience.
