Knowledge Mobilisation and Public & Community Involvement

PPI PPE Strategy

This theme cross cuts across all other themes and will ensure we address questions important to the public and maximise our research impacts.

The HPRU works closely with PHE's Knowledge and Evidence team and the UK Public Health Network for Zoonoses to develop and disseminate outputs such as evidence synopses and lay summaries, supported by strong social media activities, also tracking the value and impact of outputs. 

We also continue to work with international policy makers, especially WHO.  We have contributed to the developement of the UK guidelines on the management of encephalitis and meningitis.  The HPRU EZI has also played a leading role the formation of the UK HCID guidelines, and we expect to be involved in further modifications.

A PhD in the area of knowledge mobilisation will look at the historical contexts of how policy is developed, in response to infection threats, to help inform future strategies.
