Our focus on understanding health and well-being in populations is matched by an emphasis on knowledge exchange.
We support public health professionals and decision-makers to take action to benefit population health and we engage with the public to better understand health issues.
We have close ties with health policymakers, service providers, commissioners and planners that enable us to understand challenges to public health and to exchange knowledge and research messages, evidence, data and methodologies.
This Quick Guide to Knowledge Exchange may be useful for busy researchers. If you want to do just one thing to reach beyond your usual academic audiences, this guide is designed to help you.
Our membership includes Public Health England’s Eastern Health Intelligence Units, which supply evidence, data and resources to help public health planners and commissioners make rational assessments of population needs.
Applied health research would not be possible without engaging with wider partnerships and collaborations, as they allow us to learn from eachother and contribute new knowledge.
