National Bereavement Alliance – PHResH – EoE ARC Symposium:
Bereavement Support Now and Next – What are we learning from the pandemic? A research, practice and policy symposium

Online Zoom Webinar, Wednesday 19th May 2021, 14:00 – 17:00 (GMT+1)

The Covid-19 pandemic has directly bereaved hundreds of thousands of people in the UK, and impacted on the bereavement of millions more. Researchers have worked fast to shed light on the support that people need in this context and how bereavement services can be delivered; service providers have developed new ways of working in response to new needs and constraints. These learnings will influence how bereavement support is delivered in the future.

This free symposium, hosted by the National Bereavement Alliance, East of England Population Health Research Hub and NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England, will showcase new findings and develop a set of policy and research priorities to strengthen support for those bereaved now and in the future.

Slides and recordings available soon.

ARC-CSaP-PHResH Prevention Webinar:
Strengthening Communities and Society for Collective Action

Online Zoom Meeting, Wednesday 10th March, 16.00 – 17.00

This webinar was a collaboration between the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE) together with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) and the Population Health Research Hub East of England (PHResH EoE).

Prevention: Strengthening Communities and Society for Collective Action

This webinar was the second in a series on prevention (see details of the first here), where we gained insights into the broad factors influencing the health of communities, new measures of evaluating population health, and ideas for behavioural interventions to improve health.

This challenge was viewed from a diverse range of perspectives to address questions including:

  • How is poverty and precarity experienced and in what ways does this influence the ability to have a good quality of life?
  • How should we engage and empower communities in prevention efforts?
  • How do we consider more holistic approaches to measuring success in prevention and wellbeing? What does success look like?
  • What assets as well as barriers exist within communities and how can behavioural interventions work with these to prevent poor health?
