Background, aims and content
This workshop will explore frameworks and processes for developing and optimising complex interventions in healthcare and communities in low resource settings and amongst socially excluded groups.
To introduce key frameworks and principles that guide intervention development in low resource settings and amongst socially excluded groups;
To present case studies illustrating the development of complex interventions in low resource settings and amongst socially excluded groups;
To discuss critical issues that impact on the development and optimisation of complex interventions in low resource settings and amongst socially excluded groups, including power relations, gender and intersectionality, and the engagement of community stakeholders.
The workshop will begin with two interactive presentations that present key frameworks and principles using case studies from Bangladesh and the United Kingdom. Participants will then be organised into discussion groups, each facilitated by an experienced researcher, to consider how to critically engage with issues impacting on interventions, outlined above. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on how these issues might be addressed in the context of their own work.
(Attendees assumed to have a basic knowledge of or interest in intervention development, but may have no prior knowledge of the workshop topic)
Anyone with an interest in a global perspective on how to develop and optimise complex interventions in low resource settings or with socially excluded communities.
