Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Professor Laurence Moore, Director, MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow

In this seminar, Professor Moore will give an overview of the possibilities, challenges and developments in methodology in the design and implementation of RCTs of complex public health interventions. He will exemplify some of the points using a recently completed trial, funded by the National Prevention Research Initiative, of the Strengthening Families Program 10-14. This is an intervention designed for delivery to families with children aged between 10 and 14. The program includes seven weekly sessions. The first hour comprises separate activities for young people and their parents. In the second hour of each session, families work together. The program is designed to prevent young people from misusing alcohol and drugs by strengthening protective factors and reducing key risk factors associated with substance misuse.
