Complexity in Health

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

We know that population health and health inequalities are a product of the complex interplay of many different factors, including social, behavioural, economic, political and environmental determinants of health. These factors come together in complex adaptive systems that are often resistant to change. This makes it very difficult to find out how we can improve health, or to understand or predict the impact on health of different policies or interventions.
We aim to provide leadership in the development of new research methods to evaluate programmes that aim to improve health and reduce inequalities in health. This work is important since decision makers need to understand where to target effort and investment. It is imperative that we can identify what works, for whom, under what circumstances and why. We will further develop and apply methods to help researchers, decision makers and the public share their knowledge to gain richer understandings of how multiple factors come together to influence heath and inequalities. We will use simulation and evaluation methods to identify solutions that contribute to improve health and reduce inequalities. Our work will focus on mental health, healthy ageing, adolescent health, social care and healthy schools.

Technical Summary

The complexity in health programme aims to improve the design and conduct of population health improvement research, through development and translation of methods and their implementation in studies. An increasing focus will be to prioritise complex adaptive systems approaches to intervention and evaluation: “Instead of asking whether an intervention works to fix a problem, researchers should aim to identify if and how it contributes to reshaping a system in favourable ways.” A major ambition is to develop methods and approaches which facilitate partnership at all stages of complex intervention research between interdisciplinary researchers and key stakeholders in real-world settings – policymakers, practitioners, and the public.
The aims of our planned programme of work focus on key areas where progress is required:
(i) to develop better methods to co-produce intervention programme theory and use this to identify key uncertainties, guide the choice of evaluation perspective and the prioritisation of research questions and identify the appropriate research design;
(ii) to develop and translate methods and processes that support the involvement of stakeholders in all stages of development, evaluation and implementation;
(iii) to develop and normalise a wider range of approaches to evaluation, including complex systems approaches and other methods more suited to the evaluation of meso-, macro- and multi-level interventions;
(iv) to improve the efficiency of research and its relevance and translation into policy and practice.
To achieve these aims, we will organise our work in four workstreams. The methods workstream will develop and translate methods to improve the design, conduct and utility to decision-makers of public health improvement research, with a significant focus on co-production of programme theory to inform intervention and evaluation design. It will include methods development to improve the application of agent-based models (ABMs) in population health. The modelling workstream will apply ABMs to a range of public health issues including social care, welfare reform and place-based health. The interventions workstream will work with colleagues and multi-sectoral collaborators to identify and/or develop novel interventions and evaluate them and their implementation in real world settings, particularly focussing on adolescent health and healthy ageing. The educational settings workstream will focus on school based interventions with an emphasis on adolescent mental health.

Title TRIUMPH Youth Advisory Group Video (Mariam Kadhim) 
Description TRIUMPH recruited diverse a group of sixteen young people from across the UK to form the Youth Advisory Group. They met for the first time in June 2019 for a three-day residential meeting in Glasgow - the video presents their experiences. 
Type Of Art Film/Video/Animation 
Year Produced 2019 
Impact The video was played at four regional agenda-setting workshops in front of audiences which included policy-makers, health practitioners, and young people. As a result, they had a deeper understanding of youth involvement and how the group plays a key role in the development of the network and ensures that young people are meaningfully involved in events, activities and research.

Impact In response to the growing number of young people who may find themselves struggling with their mental health during the coronavirus crisis, the Welsh Government developed a range of resources providing children and young people with information to understand the coronavirus pandemic, keep healthy, and support their mental health and wellbeing. The Mental Health Toolkit was designed to direct young people, aged 11 - 25, from the Hwb to a wide range of online resources that can support young people through the lockdown and beyond. It had six wellbeing categories, in each of them will be self-help websites, apps, helplines, and more that are here to support young peoples' mental health and wellbeing. Their target audience is the 11-25 age bracket, with some resources being applicable to all and some leaning towards one end or the other. The six resource categories are: Coronavirus and your wellbeing Keeping Healthy and Active Anxiety Low Mood Loss & Bereavement Crisis & Self-Harm. The resources that were selected are based on the digital self-help resources that are currently recommended for use by local authorities and health boards. Long term, the model will be iteratively updated to capture the needs of children and young people as the Coronavirus situation evolves. This ensures that the resources remain relevant and means that once the Coronavirus pandemic has passed, the toolkit can support young people's mental health in a more generalised capacity or focus in on other specific circumstances should the situation demand it. TRIUMPH Youth Advisory group members provided feedback and thoughts on the toolkit, to ensure that the resource is as relevant and useful to young people as it can be. Feedback was provided via a survey, as due to time constraints it was not possible to organise an online focus group; this also allowed members to feedback in their own time. The feedback helped shape the toolkit and enabled the Welsh Government to make changes that will make the toolkit more suitable and applicable for other young people.

Description Covid-19: Agent-based model of pandemic progression and effectiveness of mitigation strategies. A multi-layer network agent-based model of the progression of the COVID19 infection and its mitigations: lockdowns, social distancing, contact tracing, massive testing. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact he model is designed to test and appreciate the difference in infections and casualties with and without social distancing/lockdown measures and, more importantly, to test the effectiveness of infection mitigation strategies such as large scale testing and contact tracing apps. Specifically, the complex interaction between the availability of testing and different levels of app adoption can be usefully explored with this model. The model also shows that, when we assume that the viral transmission runs predominantly through one's social network, the dynamic of the infection is different from that emerging under the assumption of most SEIR models of an equal probability of everyone infecting everyone else.

PI Contribution SHINE is collaborating with Generation Scotland at The University of Edinburgh (https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland) on their recently launched TeenCovidLife survey (22nd May 2020) for 12 to 17 years olds to see how Covid-19 is affecting their health and wellbeing, social and home life. Questions from the Health Behaviour and School-Aged Children survey as well as the forthcoming SHINE On-line Pupil Mental Health survey have been incorporated into the TeenCovidLife survey and the survey distributed to secondary schools in the SHINE network. SHINE schools will have the opportunity to gather base-line mental health data to compare with any data collected later via the SHINE pupil on-line pupil mental health survey. Participating SHINE schools will receive a report with the national findings of the survey in July, as well a school-level data report in August (survey numbers permitting) to assist with planning for the transition back to school. This survey will build on SHINE's ongoing data-driven, systems-level approach to mental health improvement in schools.
Collaborator Contribution Generation Scotland (https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland) have launched a survey (CovidLife) to understand the psychological, social and economic impacts of COVID-19. There will be a follow up survey as the lockdown continues and again after the government measures are lifted to see how different Generation Scotland volunteers and household cope over time. Generation Scotland requested SHINE to help develop their TeenCovidLife survey for 12 to 17 years olds and work with the SHINE network of secondary schools. Following the first survey (Over 5,000 respondents), over 2,000 TeenCovidLife volunteers took part in the second survey in autumn 2020, to have their say on how the COVID-19 pandemic affected their lives and what it meant to them. The survey included questions about vaccines, exams, wellbeing and COVID-19 measures. The reports were made available in February 2021.
Impact TeenCovid Life national reports are available at https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland/what-have-we-found/latest-news/teencovidlife2-results https://www.ed.ac.uk/generation-scotland/what-have-we-found/latest-news/teencovidlife-one 36 school-level reports were distributed to SHINE schools and 18 local authority-level reports to SHINE partner local authorities.

Results and Impact SCRAMS (Sleep, circadian rhythms and mental health in schools) and SHINE (Schools Health and Wellbeing Improvement Research Network) researchers, in collaboration with the charity Sleep Scotland and pupils from two SHINE schools, Blairgowrie High School and Craigmount High School, developed a virtual 'Sleep in Schools' week, which ran for all their pupils from 8th to 12th June 2020.

The aim of the sleep week was to explore young people's sleep habits and raise awareness of the importance of getting a good night's sleep for mental wellbeing, especially at this unprecedented time of the Covid pandemic. Later it is planned to launch a brief survey to measure young people's knowledge and perceptions about sleep and sleep research in a more conventional way to cross-validate data from the 'Sleep in School' week activities. There will be more opportunities for schools to get involved in future engagement activities and the feasibility research studies from Autumn 2020.

The programme of activities that has been co-produced with pupils and teachers included:
• Using Sleep Scotland's 'Sound Sleep' resources including a sleep quiz, sleep habits and behaviours questionnaires, and checklist for sleepy teenagers within Personal & Social Education (PSE) lessons.
• School-wide exercises for pupils reflecting on their sleep and activity levels and how these relate to mental wellbeing and then sharing these thoughts with their peers, parents and teachers.

Results and Impact The Schools Health and Wellbeing Improvement Research Network (SHINE) has been collaborating with Generation Scotland at The University of Edinburgh on the TeenCovidLife survey with the full report, poster and summary launched on the 10th August 2020. From 22nd May to the 5th July 2020 5,548 young people, aged 12-17, across Scotland took part in TeenCovidLife, an online survey about health and wellbeing that provided a voice for young people. The number of young people feeling lonely was three times higher during lockdown compared to pre-lockdown levels. Home-based schooling was a challenge for a large proportion of participants, with 46 per cent saying they found it difficult, in comparison 23 per cent found it easy. Lockdown was also found to have had an impact on the sleep of young people as 69 per cent of them said they were going to bed later during lockdown. Participating SHINE schools with a large number of respondents will receive a school-level report, which can be used to formulate specific response plans to the impact of lockdown on their pupils. Media coverage of the findings included The Daily Telegraph, The I, The Scotsman, The Herald, Scottish Daily Mail, Scottish Daily Express, Daily Record, Metro, Press and Journal and Evening Express. The findings were also featured in an interview on Reporting Scotland BBC One (https://mms.tveyes.com/MediaDownload.asp?MDID=13602929&MDS=2428), in a substantial interview with David Porteous on BBC Sounds Good Morning Scotland (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000lm4z) and covered on STV news.

Results and Impact Dr Umberto Gostoli and myself contributed to a workshop entitled 'Challenges of modelling complex health behaviour', presented by the PHASE Research Network team at Social Simulation Week 2020. At this virtual event the PHASE Network team gave several presentations highlighting challenges we have faced and overcome while building complex agent-based models of health behaviours. Dr Gostoli gave a talk highlighting our work on modelling social care, particularly informal care, and discussed the challenges of this particular topic, such as limited data availability, limited research into what drives caring behaviours, and more systemic challenges of finding funding on this issue.

The workshop attracted 40 participants, and included PHASE Network member, academics and policy-makers. The audience engaged well with the debate and generated questions for discussion at the end of the session, and some ideas were developed for future events.
