Research in the Public Health, Epidemiology and Health Services Research programme from Newcastle University is organised into four themes and underpinned by four discipline groups. As a research student, you will be fully integrated in a theme or group. You will have a team of supervisors, including clinicians or policy makers from a range of health and social care settings. Current research interests, projects and publications are available from our staff profiles.
The applied epidemiology theme contributes to the understanding, prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable disease across the life course. Research areas include:
- maternal and perinatal health
- childhood cancer
- life course epidemiology
Decision making and organisation of care
Decision making and organisation of care brings together social and behavioural science, and clinical expertise to conduct applied health research. Research areas include:
- implementation/improvement science
- shared decision making/patient-centred care
- experience of health, illness and healthcare
Life-course, development and ageing
Life-course, development and ageing explores healthy ageing, from development in childhood and the consequences of disability, to the health and wellbeing of the oldest old (85 and over). Research areas include:
- ageing and health
