What is the event about?

In the second of a series of events addressing current topics in research ethics, Dr Katrina Wyatt will be joined by HeLP co-ordinators to discuss co-creating research with Schools.
Katrina has worked with schools, children and their families for eight years to develop the Healthy Lifestyles Programme (HeLP) and evaluative plan. The Healthy Lifestyles programme is a novel, school located, drama based obesity prevention programme which is being trialled in 32 schools, involving 1300 children.

They will discuss this research and their approach to working with schools, focussing on practical and ethical considerations.

This presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and the opportunity for attendees to discuss both the practical and ethical considerations of working with children and schools in their own research. Gail Seymour will lead the discussion and aim to identify the basis for some best practice guidelines to help researchers in this area.

Presenters:

Dr Katrina Wyatt is an Associate Professor at the University of Exeter Medical School. Katrina’s research interests include the development of complex interventions to change behaviours; supporting patients, service users and communities to be active partners in research projects; and in the provision of methodological expertise for the development and evaluation of public health interventions. She is involved in several research projects concerned with gaining an understanding of the necessary conditions for transformational change in health and social care communities.

Who is this for?

This event is open to all University staff who are active or interested in research involving working with children or schools. You will have the opportunity to share experiences of research in this area and to discuss the development of best practice guidelines.
