Take part in research

Previously, researchers from the University of Bristol and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine worked with young people and key stakeholders to develop resources for a lesson about the HPV vaccine.

The resources include a PowerPoint presentation and a training document for the educator delivering the lesson. You can view short video clips of the films we created for the PowerPoint here.

We are now carrying out a study to help us find out the best way to deliver the lesson in schools. If possible, we would like to arrange a discussion group with school nurses to find out their views on the best way to do this. The discussion group will last 1 hour and take place through an online platform (e.g. Teams).

If you are potentially interested in taking part in a discussion group or finding out more about the study in general, please contact Dr Harri Fisher, by email or phone 07535 893 186

Colleagues at Manchester Metropolitan University and Liverpool John Moores University are jointly undertaking research into the impact of Covid-19 and domestic abuse

Researchers at LJMU and MMU are conducting a survey exploring the impact of Covid-19 on domestic abuse safeguarding policy and practice. The study explores the effect of Covid-19 on the identification of DA survivors and their children and on the support, protection and safeguarding they have received during lockdown. It will also identify good practice and recommendations that can inform future policy and practice in this area. We are interested in your experiences of safeguarding at a strategic level during lockdown and as it unfolds.
