Mario Bach from the Robert Koch Institute (a national public health institute in Germany) would like to invite you to take part in a working group to be held on the 2017 ICPHR working meeting in Limerick. The group will focus on participatory research practices in health reporting and epidemiology.
Epidemiology and health reporting are contributing in many ways to identifying various risk factors for disease and to promoting population health. However, there is a continuing debate about the ability of epidemiology not only to describe, but also to provide results which can be better translated into public health practice. It has been proposed that applying participatory research approaches to epidemiology as a way to bridge this gap between description and action. Within the context of PartKommPlus-Research Consortium for Healthy Communities the conceptual framework Participatory Epidemiology was developed to address this gap (see link below).
Aim of the working group
An introduction into the concept will be provided and selected examples of participatory epidemiological practice will be presented. In the working group methodological and practical issues like defining the population, reconsidering context, or synthesizing heterogeneous data can be discussed concerning your own experiences. The working group aims to share ideas and experiences in participatory data acquisition and usage for health reporting and epidemiology. The group will be chaired by Mario Bach.
Mario Bach, Susanne Jordan, Claudia Santos-Hövener
The conceptual framework is available at: http://ete-online.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12982-017-0056-4
