Diversity of Evidence Used During COVID-19

Recent headlines have been dominated by emerging new research in the fight against COVID-19. However, it can be difficult to know how research was performed, where and why. Research reported often has much diversity in terms of its design, populations and purpose.

Due to the urgent need for COVID-19 research, much of the research picked up by the media has not been peer reviewed by other scientists. This talk will introduce different types of evidence being used to fight COVID-19 and offer tips to make sense of the science shared by the media.

Featuring:

Dr Emma Norris is a Lecturer in Public Health in the Department of Clinical Sciences at Brunel University. Emma is a researcher in behaviour change and health psychology. She explores how we can best bring together evidence on behaviour change interventions, and how to develop and evaluate effective health behaviour change interventions.

Professor Christina Victor is a leading expert in Gerontology and Public Health, Vice Dean (Research) in the College of Health and Life Sciences and the Ageing Studies Theme Leader in the Institute of Environment, Health and Societies.
