I am Director of the Public Health Research Consortium (funded by the Department of Health Policy Research Programme: http://phrc.lshtm.ac.uk/). I have co-authored a book which provides guidance on how to do systematic reviews in public health:
Petticrew M, Roberts H (2006) Systematic Reviews in the Social Sciences: A practical guide. Oxford: Blackwell Publishing.
I am also a member of PIRU - the Policy Innovation Research Unit at LSHTM (http://www.piru.ac.uk/home), and Karen Lock and I co-direct the NIHR School for Public Health Research at LSHTM: http://sphr.lshtm.ac.uk
I am an Honorary Professor at the University of Liverpool.
New research papers:
Petticrew M. Time to rethink the systematic review catechism? Moving from 'what works' to 'what happens': See:
We have also recently published papers on the Responsibility Deal evaluation, relating to the alcohol network, and the food network: see:
I currently teach on the MSc Public Health (Health Promotion Stream), among others, and co-organise the Health Promotion Approaches and Methods module.
A main interest is in the evaluation of complex interventions.
One of the papers has been made freely available by J Clin Epi:
"Complex interventions and their implications for systematic reviews:
a pragmatic approach":
The Responsibility Deal Evaluation is described here (with details of publications):
Other research has investigated tobacco industry funding of psychological research - e.g. the research of Hans Selye (see:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20466961), and research on Type A Behaviour and CHD (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22994187).
We have published a new paper in the American J of Public Health on Islam and the tobacco industry:
The Guardian did a nice piece on this:
- Complex interventions
- Health inequalities
- Public health
- Research : policy relationship
- Systematic reviews
- Policy analysis
- Alcohol Policy
- Alcohol policy in developing countries
- alcohol use
