"Understanding Health Policy in the Third Era through a Complex Systems Lens"

Health policy is complex, arguably becoming more so.   What have been termed ‘wicked issues’ are a central feature of health policy where there are often no simple or single solutions, if any at all.  This is especially evident in regard to public health issues including obesity, alcohol and substance misuse, health inequalities.  

But health systems more generally are undergoing major transformation in response to changes in epidemiology, aging populations, lifestyle-related illnesses, multi-morbidities, and so on.  We have entered the third era of thinking about health policy which has introduced new challenges and complexities.

The talk will be illustrated with examples from the Centre of Public Policy and Health’s research programme.  The Centre is engaged in the Fuse partnership made up of the five North East universities in addressing these challenges to research and leads the complex systems research theme. It is also working with WHO Europe on a health system transformation programme of work focusing on the How of change and not the What.

Two principal objectives of the complex systems research programme are to:
•    Explore the nature of transformational change in complex health systems with a view to identifying the key enablers and barriers in regard to sustainable change
•    Evaluate the impact on people’s health and wellbeing of policy changes including the return of public health to local government in England in 2013, the programme of new models of care outlined in the NHS Five Year Forward View (2014), and the focus on place-based change arising from the Sustainability and Transformation Programme being introduced across England.

In addressing the challenges facing health systems and how to transform them, the implications for research and researchers will be explored with reference to issues such as knowledge exchange, co-production, and getting evidence into policy and practice.
