On May 15th, 2020, Dr. Justin Jagosh, Director, Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES), UK, will be presenting a webinar titled “Public Health Architecture and Realist Methodology.”

Realist Methodology, with its emphasis on uncovering explanatory mechanisms and context-mechanism interactions, can help in envisioning the ‘architectural diversity’ within classes of interventions. In the domain of public health for example, interventions can comprise educational, incentivizing or punitive efforts. Interventions can be highly scripted or, conversely, be designed for customization. Interventions can change contexts or can be changed by them. Nation-wide strategies may create new opportunities in some jurisdictions and new deficits in other areas, leading to the ad hoc formation of more interventions. Thus, understanding the architecture of interventions can serve as a pre-cursor to comprehensive assessments, to anticipate blind spots and provide new ideas for innovation and complex problem solving. This webinar will review these ideas in relation to public health planning in line with principles of realist inquiry. You are invited to join us using Google Meet, linked to the top of this page.

In this Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course, There is a need to understand implementation in the real-world context. There are many evidence-based interventions to improve health that have not been effectively delivered. The research agenda especially in the context of maternal and child health, non-communicable diseases, etc. have been shifting and needs to shift from understanding the problem to actually intervening and testing solutions in health care systems. This Certificate course in Implementation Research Methods (eIR) course will improve the capacity of researchers to answer implementation research questions.
