Nutrition, Development and Lifelong Health: Studies in European Populations

Lead Research Organisation: University of Southampton

Abstract

The mission of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit is to provide a centre of excellence which uses epidemiological methods to promote human health by delineating the environmental and occupational causes throughout the lifecourse of: (1) chronic musculoskeletal disorders (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and sarcopenia); and (2) metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus, obesity and cardiovascular disease). Through understanding these causes, we aim to develop population-based and high risk preventive strategies against these disorders. This programme will explore the contributions made by maternal undernutrition to the origins of later diabetes and heart disease in the offspring. It is based in the United Kingdom, and utilises a number of observational studies and trials.

Technical Summary

Objective: To (a) define the early environmental determinants of later chronic disease and their mechanistic basis, and (b) translate this work into policy measures and interventions to improve public health. We aim to: (1) maximise the potential of the ERC cohorts to enable the definition of developmental influences on major childhood and adult disorders, and examine hypotheses relating to prenatal/postnatal mismatch, epigenetic processes and economic consequences; and (2) conduct intervention studies in young women to improve their health and that of their children. Research proposals: Within the SWS and our other mother-offspring cohorts we shall examine the hypothesis that maternal and lifestyle influences from before conception, and mismatches between the fetal/infant and later childhood environment, have detrimental effects on body composition, cardiovascular structure and function, respiratory disease and atopy, and cognition. Data from Helsinki and from other European cohorts will be used to increase our understanding of influences on major adult disorders, notably cardiovascular disease and cancer. Within our EpiGen consortium we aim to define epigenetic biomarkers of later disease risk that will inform intervention studies. Our data resources spanning the lifecourse provide opportunities for comprehensive mechanistic and behavioural insights into chronic diseases and markers at different stages of life. Moreover, in an international collaboration we are defining the economic consequences of a poor start to life, which will inform public health policy and assess the potential impact of focused interventions. Finally, our work has led to four interventions to improve the diets and health behaviours of young women. Three of these target women in pregnancy. The fourth focuses on women of child-bearing age who already have young children. The aim is to improve the health of the women prior to any subsequent pregnancy and that of their children. Impact: Our work contributes to three current MRC research priorities: clinical and public health research, ageing-related research, and biomarkers. The work has a strong clinical and public health focus, our lifecourse approach increases understanding of ageing, and our work on epigenetic processes aims to identify biomarkers that assist in the characterisation of new interventions to improve public health. Our cohort studies will provide evidence as to whether mismatches between the maternal, infant and childhood environments are associated with cardiovascular risk, impaired respiratory health, cognitive development, and obesity. Our intervention studies will provide translational data on the benefits of better nutrition of young women, and have the potential to improve the health of women and children now, and that of future generations.

Description Healthy Conversation Skills - WTL 2019 (2018)
Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The impact of Healthy Conversation Skills has been seen on both public health policy and practice in the UK and abroad and the training has been widely adopted as a means of improving the effectiveness of contact with health and social care practitioners and the agenda to prevent disease. Impact has been seen in a number of ways: 1. Policy The 2015 Chief Medical Officer's report on women's health recommended a shift in focus for primary prevention of obesity in childhood to the preconception period and contained a piece on the contribution that Healthy Conversation Skills training would make to delivering preconception healthcare. Appreciating the significance of improving health before conception for the health of future generations, the Rank Prize Funds sponsored Southampton researchers to hold a week long 'think tank' in February 2016 to plan a route for this research into policy and practice. (Note: Rank Prize Funds is a charitable organisation which seeks to recognise excellence in specific fields of research and reward innovators for their dedication and outstanding contribution.) The result was the publication of a series of 3 papers in the Lancet in 2018 making the case for investment in preconception health; one of these papers described how HCS could be used in interventions to engage young men and women in preconception health improvement. Southampton researchers and colleagues from University College London have since formed a UK national Preconception Partnership, a translational pathway for improving preconception health, which has members from Public Health England, Department of Health and Social Care, several Royal Colleges and the editor of the Lancet. To increase political accountability for preconception health care, the Lancet have agreed to publish a 'report card' every year in March describing the state of preconception health in the UK. Public Health England have also used HCS as a case study for how best we might intervene to improve preconception health. Southampton researchers have recently been asked to meet the the office of the deputy leader of the Labour Party, Tom Watson, to discuss how preconception health might be improved as a route to reducing obesity and long-term disease in the next generation of UK citizens. 2. Practice Healthy Conversation Skills training has been taken-up as a model for delivering behaviour change support across the UK, and internationally. In response to the 5 Year Forward Plan, agreed by NHS England, Health Education England and Public Health England in 2014, NHS trusts and local authorities established mechanisms for facilitating health improvement though the development of the wider healthcare workforce and a commitment to 'making every contact count' (MECC). MECC as a principle takes advantage of the fact that everyday more than a million people in the UK have contact with health and social care practitioners. The NHS Futures Forum introduced the idea that these contacts might represent opportunities to support members of the public to adopt healthier behaviours and in so doing 'make every contact count'. Health Education England are responsible for the training and development of the healthcare workforce. In 2013, and under the leadership of Em Rahman, Head of Public Health Workforce Development Programmes, Health Education England, Wessex piloted Healthy Conversation Skills as the mechanism for delivering MECC, and began full implementation of training in the skills with the support of Dr Wendy Lawrence and the University of Southampton team in 2016. Between September 2016 and September 2018, 174 health and social care practitioners in the region were trained to deliver MECC Healthy Conversation Skills training. They have trained a total of 1,167 staff in 99 groups. Since its introduction in Wessex, the Healthy Conversation Skills model of MECC training has been taken up by Thames Valley region, where there are now 79 trainers, the South West region (116 trainers who have trained 870 frontline staff) and the East of England, there are now 23 trainers who have trained 238 of the front line workforce, mainly from Primary Care, Mental Health Trusts and Fire Service. In total from Wessex, South West and East of England a total of 2,275 front line staff were trained between 2016 and 2018. Healthy Conversation Skills/MECC training has been received by staff from a wide range of health and social care organisations in all regions. All trainers using this model of MECC are required to evaluate the impact of the training on staff practice using standard tools provided by the University of Southampton, where the data are also analysed. Pre and post-training evaluation of these staff demonstrates changes in practice and competence in using the skills. Healthy Conversation Skills/MECC training has been accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and the return of evaluation data to Health Education England, Wessex is necessary to receive RSPH accreditation. Over the last 5 years, NHS commissioners have mobilised MECC by including a commitment to MECC principles in standard NHS contracts and by linking it directly to CQUINs relating to risky behaviours and self-management. This has facilitated the dissemination of MECC into the wider set of organisations and workforces contracted to deliver frontline services. The development and adoption of the Healthy Conversation Skills Train-the-Trainer and Super Trainer model has enabled a large-scale roll-out of the training and provides a sustainable model for upskilling anyone supporting a health and well-being agenda regardless of job role, context or population.

Description Submission on consultation of restricting energy drink consumption among children
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Participation in a national consultation
Impact We provided evidence to demonstrate that Children and adolescents who consume energy drinks have significantly poorer dietary quality and higher daily energy intake (kcal/day) than those who do not take these drinks. Energy drink intake among children and adolescents is socioeconomically patterned: those from disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to consume energy drinks than those from affluent backgrounds. Alarmingly, this inequality in energy drink intake has increased by 8% from 2008 to 2016. We also indicated that Teachers have concerns about the negative physical and behavioural effects that energy drinks have on their students. Headaches, stomach aches, sleeping problems and hyperactivity have been frequently reported as physical consequences of children and adolescents consuming energy drinks, likely due to the high caffeine and sugar content. Younger adolescents say that the voluntary bans in place in food retail outlets do not prevent them from being sold energy drinks. Societal attitudes to energy drinks is changing due to concern from professionals, teachers and parents.

PI Contribution The Preconception Partnership was jointly formed by my research team and researchers from UCL and King's College London, working with Public Health England.
Collaborator Contribution The Preconception Partnership was jointly formed by my research team and researchers from UCL and King's College London, working with Public Health England.
Impact The Preconception Partnership is a coalition of groups representing different aspects of preconception health in women and their partners, including the UK's acknowledged experts in the fields of reproductive and sexual health, obstetrics and gynaecology, population health and epidemiology, nutritional sciences, behavioural sciences and education in schools. We advocate policy that acknowledges the opportunities and challenges of health promotion at this time in the life course, and offer the leadership necessary to turn such policies into coordinated, practical and effective action. The work of the partnership led Public Health England to publish new guidance in 2018 ("Preconception care: making the case"), which includes information, intelligence, and tools with evidence-based approaches for the embedding of preconception care.
