Effective interventions for preventing and managing common paediatric chronic conditions, such as asthma, diabetes and obesity, will improve outcomes and experiences for children and young people and their families and reduce inequalities in health and health care.
Our children and adolescent health theme is co-designing and evaluating acceptable, effective and low cost interventions for common conditions in children and young people. Our research responds to the ambition to move care away from hospitals and into community settings. Our studies actively involve children and young people to ensure acceptability, appropriateness and the likelihood of successful uptake.
