The CERIPH research team has expertise in the development, implementation and evaluation of formative and longitudinal intervention research in key areas such as: breastfeeding; nutrition and physical activity; alcohol and other drug use; mental health; seniors’ health; HIV and sexual health related research.
The research team primarily conducts:
- Formative research to explore the factors that influence health-related issues and to inform longitudinal research projects.
- Intervention research to develop and evaluate promising evidence-based interventions designed to enhance health-promoting behaviours.
- Dissemination and implementation research to assess the impact of efforts to help key target groups.
- Program evaluation to assess and improve the impact of health promoting programs, environments and policies.
The combined expertise of the CERIPH staff, together with the establishment of collaborative networks, aims to foster the practice of health promotion by encompassing the nexus between research and practice.
