Social Relationships and Health Improvement Programme

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

Social relationships (in families, intimate or sexual relationships, or based on broader friendships/social networks and communities) are fundamental to the development of our attitudes and behaviour from childhood and throughout life. Relationships shape health at various levels, both as a source of risk and as a protective factor. Understanding how social relationships affect health and are related to other biological, social, and environmental factors is crucial to informing intervention development. Interventions that target relationships and social networks also have the potential to influence other people who may be connected to these which could be a factor in helping people to maintain behaviour change, the ‘holy grail’ of behaviour change research.

We will study the processes through which our relationships influence health and wellbeing using a mix of qualitative and quantitative research. We will then use this information to develop and test interventions that could improve health and reduce health inequalities. We will examine the characteristics and influence of relationships among groups at risk of ill health and health inequalities, with a particular focus on the role of social support and social networks. Technology is rapidly changing social networks and relationships, and we will explore how this influences health and how social media and smartphone apps can be exploited to mobilise social networks and improve health.

Technical Summary

Aims and objectives

Social relationships (be they familial, intimate or sexual relationships, or based on broader friendships/social networks and communities) are fundamental to the development of our attitudes and behaviour from childhood and across the life course leading to advantages and also inequalities in health. The aim of the Social Relationships and Health Improvement programme is to examine the dynamic mechanisms by which social relationships and networks influence health and behaviours across the life course, and to translate these understandings into interventions to modify relationship influences, and improve population health. Our objectives are to:
1. Measure and explain the influence of social relationships on health behaviours and inequalities
2. Discover how to modify social relationship influences to improve population health and reduce inequalities
3. Develop and evaluate theory-driven, relationship-based interventions to improve population health and reduce inequalities

Research plan and methodology

We will use a range of qualitative and quantitative methods and disciplinary perspectives to generate new understandings on the influence of relationships on health and identify the crucial mechanisms that form the whole, or a part of, interventions. We will in turn develop and evaluate multilevel, translational interventions to improve health and reduce inequalities. We will seek to develop interventions that work across the four supra-individual levels of the socio-ecological framework (relationships, settings, neighbourhoods and policy); novel research made possible by the Unit’s integrated cross-programme working.

The programme will include four inter-related themes on: families; peers and social networks; intimate and sexual relationships; and communities.

The families theme will focus on the development and evaluation of early years interventions and address two core knowledge gaps: the role of maternal support; and the nature of fathers’ involvement with their children, and how such involvement might be optimised through parenting interventions.

The peers and social networks theme will examine how social networks and the resources drawn from social support and connectedness influence health, behaviour and social norms. We will identify the social support mechanisms in interventions to initiate and maintain behaviour change and the potential of technology based interventions to facilitate this.

The intimate and sexual relationships theme will explore the potential mechanisms of change within relationships that could improve a range of mental, physical, and primarily sexual, health outcomes. A crucial aspect will be in exploring how to counter negative power relations, gendered or otherwise, within relationships, with a particular focus on the perpetration of gender-based violence across the life course.

The communities theme will focus on to affect change at the community level via a community participative approach. It will have a specific focus on identity-based (e.g. gay or professional) and online communities and will explore how to operationalise the concept of social cohesion, and its potential impact on social networks.

We will work with our clinical, policy, and international partners to explore how to incorporate our findings into changes in policy, practice, and intervention development at the international level.

Title My Body, My Life: a multimedia exhibition to combat abortion stigma 
Description The MBML project comprises a website (http://mybody-mylife.org/ ) and travelling exhibition which draws on real women's experiences of abortion, and presents aspects of their stories in a creative 'pop-up shop' format. The exhibition opened at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2017. Carrie Purcell and Julie Riddell were amongst the volunteers who staffed the exhibition, which will also visit Oxford, Belfast and London in 2017/18. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The Edinburgh exhibition attracted almost 300 visitors over its 6 day run, many of whom spent a significant amount of time engaging with the exhibits, and left very positive feedback. Several visitors also contributed their own experiences of abortion, which have now been incorporated into the project.

Title Production of pack of cards to explore ideal support design 
Description visual prompts are often used as part of coproduction approaches and where one of the research questions sought to explore participants ideas on support gaps it made sense to provide a set of visual prompt cards to help break the question down. Rebecca Phipps designed a pack of 30 cards; the content of which was informed by a review of existing support services. Each card featured an image on the front, and a few words on the reverse side. Content is purposely ambiguous in order to allow participants the freedom to assign their own meanings and use them how they wish. 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2017 
Impact The tool has had a positive impact on the richness of collected data. 
 
Title Sexy Science Game 
Description The 'Sexy Science' game is an interactive table-top game in which individuals pick up illustrated standing cards highlighting a key event in the history of sexology (e.g. the invention of the pill, the first major survey of sexual behaviour) and place the card on a a table-top timeline. The game is facilitated by researchers who provide feedback and initiate conversation about the events. The cards were designed by Carrie Purcell, Kirstin Mitchell and Susan Martin, with artistic and design input from Sharon Mitchell, Samantha Fiander and Louise Jack. The product has been used in a Science Festival and Museum open evenings.

Impact The Health and Social Care Committee (a Commons Select Committee of the UK parliament) launched an inquiry into sexual health. This was in response to concern about increasing diagnosis of STIs. Specifically, recent figures show that syphilis increased by 20% between 2016-17, and gonorrhoea increased by 22% over the same period. Extensively drug resistant strains of gonorrhoea have also emerged. Over the same time period there has been a reduction of 8% in the number of chlamydia tests carried out, continuing the trend of the previous year. Service providers argue that increases in STI diagnoses, against a backdrop of significant financial pressures, have left sexual health services at 'tipping point'. The committee sought evidence on a range of aspects including: recent trends, prevention efforts, commissioning of services, de-comissioned services, governance. They were primarily interested in groups at risk: MSM, young people, black ethnic minorities. Kirstin Mitchell worked with other members of the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal) team (Sonnenberg, Mercer and Field) to submit evidence, primarily pertaining to recent trend and prevention and based on data from the most recent Natsal survey (Natsal-3). The deadline for submission was 1st October 2018. The outcome of the committee proceedings is not yet known.

Title Course in Developing and Evaluating Social and Public Health Interventions 
Description A small team from Glasgow University, Danny Wight, Cindy Gray, Andy Baxter and Jo Halliday, delivered a nine day workshop in Moshi, Tanzania, to strengthen East African capacity to develop and evaluate complex interventions. The workshop presented, reviewed and adapted the GU Master's module 'Improving Health and Society' and trained the ten experienced researchers from Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya to further deliver it in their own contexts. The module trains researchers and intervention developers in the Six Steps for Quality Intervention Development (6SQuID) model, an evidence-based approach to the process of developing programmes to improve health and society, and the key principles of evaluation. Participants of the workshop are planning to build this into courses for postgraduate students, research staff, and government and NGO researchers and programmers to promote better development, evaluation and scale-up of effective projects and policies. Additionally, this first trial of the workshop will result in reproducible materials to run similar training sessions for other academics to further develop courses in new international contexts.

Title Gay Men's Sexual Health Survey 
Description The Gay Men's Sexual Health Survey was designed with Paul Flowers (Caledonian University) and Graham Hart (SPHSU and now University College London) to examine changes in gay men's sexual behaviour over time, and to further understand the HIV epidemic in Scotland. The survey has been conducted every three years since 1996. Since 2005, we have also collected oral fluid samples to be tested anonymously for HIV to improve the estimate of HIV prevalence and undiagnosed infection in this population. The data set now includes 7 waves of data, collected every 3 years between 1996 and 2014.

Title MobiQ: A modular Android application for collecting social interaction, repeated survey, GPS and photographic data (Mark McCann) 
Description The MobiQ app for Android smartphones is a feature-rich application enabling a novel approach to data collection for longitudinal surveys. It combines continuous automatic background data collection with user-supplied data. It can prompt users to complete questionnaires at regular intervals and allows users to upload photographs for social research projects. The app has the capability to collect GPS location data, and calls and text frequency (excluding content) unobtrusively. The app transmits data to a secure cloud rather than storing research data on the phone, but can also store data temporarily if a data connection is unavailable; hence, MobiQ offers data security advantages over text- or web-based surveys using phones. MobiQ has been pilot tested in the field in a social science research project and is able to collect longitudinal social research data. Due to its modular and flexible design, MobiQ can easily be adapted to suit different research questions. Furthermore, its core design approach which allows for long-term power efficient data collection can be re-used outside the social sciences domain for other kinds of smartphone-based data-driven projects. Projects that have a requirement for communications-based, sensors-based, user-based data collection or any combination of these may find our code and design approach beneficial.

Impact Research on young people using SHARE data set has clarified the likely limits of schools' influence on young people's sexual risk taking, whether through formal programmes or the broader school ethos. Reinforced evidence that teenage pregnancy is more attributable to social inequalities than lack of sexual health knowledge or skills. Scottish National Sexual Health Strategy recommends that SHARE should constitute part of the sex education curriculum throughout Scottish secondary schools.

PI Contribution ASSIST is an effective theory-based early secondary-schools-based smoking prevention intervention implemented in UK and France. The ASSIST model has significant potential to be effective in LMICs, particularly because it invests in peer supporters embedded within school systems and adolescent social networks. Provided school systems are significantly developed and attendance high, the model has potential for relatively low-cost sustained effects. The project aims to undertake preparatory research and build research partnerships ahead of a proposal to a larger GCRF call to undertake implementation trials of ASSIST in two/more settings. The University of Glasgow co-investigator team will: • Undertake desk-based research on country contexts to capture available evidence base (scoping review). • Provide orientation regarding the ASSIST model and support partners in scoping and PPI work design and set-up. • Contribute to planning and preparation for meeting of research partners in Glasgow - including identification of trainers, preparing training/lectures. • Contribute to proposal writing and wider dissemination. • Be a central point-of-contact supporting the practical management of relationship building with potential partners (including online/group diary communications). • Set up contract with Decipher Impact Ltd. • Set up sub-contracts with research partners and arrange transfer of sub-grants. • Manage arrangements for co-investigator country visits. • Co-ordinate arrangements for Glasgow partners' meeting including flights, visas and accommodation. • Contribute to planning and preparation for Glasgow partners' meeting.
Collaborator Contribution Project partner involvement includes: • Undertaking in-country scoping work to establish what is known about adolescent smoking patterns and to further articulate adolescent health priorities for a potential similar model extending to other health behaviours. • Undertaking PPI work with adolescents and teachers to ascertain views on the ASSIST model and identify potential barriers and facilitators stemming from the local context, as well as any in-country adaptations to be made (e.g. in terms of specific norms/beliefs about smoking, and which messages most likely to be effective). • Exploring options for message delivery via social media or other channels (depending on access to mobile technology). • Establishing links, and consulting key local stakeholders in educational and health policy settings. • Making initial enquires regarding suitable research sites and procedures for obtaining permission to undertake intervention and evaluation research. • Identifying potential delivery partners (training organisation specialising in health and young people) and discuss partnership mechanisms. • Inputting into agenda of a Glasgow partners' meeting by highlighting their own training needs and areas of expertise to train others.

A group of STASH peer supporters from one of the study schools ran one of the 'break-out' sessions and led participants through some of the activities they had undertaken at the STASH training day. The session was designed and facilitated by them, supported by their contact teacher. It was noticeable that the STASH peer supporters were confident and comfortable running the session, and displayed a level of comfort talking about the topic of sex that surpassed some of the adult professional participants.
