Complexity in Health Improvement

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

We know that many factors influence health and health inequalities and the work of this Unit covers social, economic, environmental and cultural determinants of health. This programme is designed to look across this and the multiple interdependent factors at play.

We want to provide leadership on the development of new research methods to evaluate programmes that aim to improve health and reduce inequalities in health, and we want to identify how and why programme effectiveness may vary. This is important since decision makers and those designing services need to understand where to target effort and investment.

It’s imperative that we can identify what works, for whom, under what circumstances and why; this is the focus of our work in this programme. We will prioritise evaluations of interventions that tackle obesity and alcohol use; use new technology; or target health behaviour among those with serious mental illness. There also needs to be a better understanding of whether specific interventions and programmes can be transferred to different settings, target groups, or the problem to be addressed, without losing their effectiveness. To do this we will need to identify what elements make it possible for a programme to be modified in order to work or indeed which elements means transferability may not be effective. We will further develop and apply methods to understand and simulate how multiple interdependent factors come together in complex adaptive systems that generate heath inequalities and are resistant to change. This will include a focus on social networks and on drinking behaviour.

Staff training, developing advanced courses, and leading collaborative networks of fellow researchers will be delivered in order to improve our professional capacity to develop and evaluate complex public health programmes and understand complex systems.

Technical Summary

Aims and objectives

We aim to lead international efforts in the application of novel methods to: (1) identify the most effective means to improve population health and reduce inequalities; and (2) understand how effectiveness might vary across contexts.

We have four objectives:
1. To improve processes and methods to rigorously develop and evaluate theoretically-based complex public health interventions, to routinely incorporate evaluability assessment into the development stages of major new policy programmes, and ensure that evaluations identify what works, for whom, under what circumstances and why.
2. To formulate general principles about the transferability of interventions, by identifying: which aspects of setting, target group or problem have insignificant impact on effectiveness, which can be addressed through intervention adaptation without loss of effectiveness, and which prevent interventions being effective when transferred.
3. To develop and apply network analysis methods and complex systems science to better understand and model the interdependent relationship between multiple determinants of health and behavior and the generation of health inequalities. This will include a focus on social influences on behavior and on alcohol use.
4. To build capacity in the development and evaluation of complex public health interventions and in complex systems science methods, through: staff and student training, developing advanced courses, and leading collaborative networks to develop and share the high quality implementation of these methods.

Research plan and methodology

There will be three complementary themes.

The first will seek to improve methods to support the design and conduct of evaluations of complex interventions, particularly through pragmatic or realist randomised trial designs. In these evaluations, form can vary, external validity is maximised, and there is a focus on understanding and explaining heterogeneity. In particular, interventions are theorised and evaluated in terms of their dependence on context, implementation and differential effectiveness across individuals and populations. This theme will prioritise interventions tackling obesity and alcohol use; using new technology; or targeting health behavior among those with serious mental illness.

Our second theme will further investigate issues of transferability across context, with a particular focus on the transferability of parenting interventions to and from resource-poor settings, notably Africa. These first two themes will largely be concerned with interventions that have multiple components and in developing theoretical and empirical evidence of both their effectiveness and their dependence on external factors.

The third theme will focus on complex systems theory and related systems science methods, to develop approaches that comprehensively account for complexity and facilitate a broader conception of the multiple, modifiable influences on population health and health inequalities. This theme will also include a focus on the co-evolution of social networks and health.

Title Illustrated comic - 'Enlighten your clock: How your body tells time' (Judith Brown) 
Description The SCRAMS project created a comic, 'Enlighten your clock: How your body tells time', to coincide with the UNESCO International Day of Light on Sunday 16th May 2021. The comic was written and illustrated by Coline Weinzaepflen, Masters student at the University of Strasbourg, and edited by Dr Manuel Spitschan at the Department of Experimental Psychology at Oxford. The comic provides a light-hearted, funny and scientifically grounded introduction to the science of sleep, suitable from the age of 13 years. The reader learns about the body clock, the brain basis of sleep, sleep conditions such as insomnia and narcolepsy, and how to improve sleep. The complex science on these subjects is illuminated through beautiful drawings and a charming narrative which bring the concepts to life. The main protagonist is a cat - a pet species notable for seemingly sleepy behaviour - guiding the human character. As the biological clock underlies many aspects of our physiology and behaviour, the book addresses a key need to explain how the environment impacts on our brain and our body.

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.

Impact Jo Inchley was invited to attend 2 workshops organised by Public Health Scotland on 12th and 28th October as part of an expert consultation to inform development of a new set of mental health indicators for children and young people in Scotland. This was an update to the previous set published in 2011. The indicator set is used to monitor the state of mental health and the risk and protective factors for mental health of children and young people (aged from pre-birth to 17 years, at a national and local level) and inequalities in these. They help inform decision-making about priorities for action and resource allocation and are used to 1. create national and local reports on population mental health, 2. inform strategy, interventions and strategic planning, 3. identify contributions to mental health improvement, 4. create wider awareness of the determinants of wellbeing, 5. strengthen the link between the determinants of mental health and interventions, and 6. inform the development of other indicators for impact assessment.

Title Course in Developing and Evaluating Social and Public Health Interventions (Daniel Wight) 
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 Agent-based model of lone parents (Eric Silverman) 
Description This model is the first released version of our agent-based simulation of the challenges faced by lone parents under the welfare-to-work system. We have made significant extensions to previous work on simulating child care demand, by simulating in detail the work schedules and hour-by-hour time demands of each individual agent. In this way we can capture detailed effects of welfare-to-work requirements, limited free child care hours, and work demands on agents attempting to provide child care in their household. This first release provides the simulation framework; subsequent updates will allow the user to examine different policy scenarios, and will incorporate code optimisations to reduce the computational demands of the agent scheduling system. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2022 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation represents a significant advance on previous work, in that it simulates the time demands placed on carers in sufficient detail that we can examine the impact of shift work, night work, and the complications introduced by the limited availability of formal child care during the day. This work is being shared with policy makers and will be refined based on their input. A publication will be prepared once the policy scenarios have been designed, run and analysed in depth; the simulation itself is already publicly available, and will be continually updated and refined as the work progresses.

Title Agent-based model of social and child care provision (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based model simulates the interaction between social care and child care supply and demand in the UK population. Previous work has demonstrated the complexities of informal social care provision, and illustrated how socioeconomic status influences the capability of individuals to provide care for loved ones. This model goes further by adding a detailed child care provision process to the model, which presents a more realistic picture of the demands placed on working families when members of the household require care. The differences between adult social care and child care are fully represented here; agents are required by law to look after their children, meaning unmet child care need supersedes adult social care need in the household, and child care can be provided on a many-to-one basis (one parent caring for multiple children at once), unlike adult care. This simulation forms the basis for our core-funded work on the impact of welfare-to-work programmes on lone parents, providing the core child-care provision module needed for that work. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact The simulation has been published by PLOS One, and the code made freely available on GitHub. This model is the first ABM to simulate the competing demands of adult social care and child care, and we are using the simulation as a foundation for future simulation work on welfare programmes and the development of policies to support informal care. We intend to further optimise this model and improve the interface, allowing it to be used by a wider community of public health researchers and policy-makers.

Title Agent-based model of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on social care (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based simulation was designed to model the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on social care in the UK. The model builds upon our previous simulation of social care, adding a detailed behavioural model of heterogeneous individual responses to the pandemic and related public health restrictions. Simulated agents react to two types of perceived risk: the risk of being infected themselves; and the risk of infecting others. In response to these risks, agents may choose to limit their interactions with others, including those to whom they are providing social care. The model also includes multiple exposure settings in which agents may contract the virus, including a specific setting modelling the spread of the virus during social care interactions. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2021 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation marks a significant advancement in methodology, in that it combines a sophisticated and detailed model of formal and informal social care with an innovative model of behavioural responses to the pandemic. The model also simulates the unequal impact of the pandemic, as agents in lower socioeconomic status groups have more difficulty self-isolating and are more likely to get infected. The model has been submitted to Scientific Reports, and we have already received enquiries about collaboration from researchers at the University of Texas.

Title Basic framework for generating simulated agent populations with realistic socio-demographic characteristics (Umberto Gostoli) 
Description This model is an enhancement of a previous social care modelling framework which includes additional characteristics in the simulated agents, primarily socio-economic status and a realistic income and wealth distribution for agent households, which makes the simulation more capable of modelling socio-economic policy interventions. The codebase has been enhanced to allow the user to easily generate and compare multiple policy scenarios, and to produce graphs of the relative effectiveness of policies. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2019 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This model enables us to investigate and evaluate the impact of different policy scenarios on simulated populations. No previous modelling efforts have been able to compare these kinds of socio-economic policies in this way. We expect this model to be influential in future projects utilising ABMs to evaluate complex policy interventions.

Title CareSim - Agent-Based Simulation of Formal and Informal Child and Social Care (Umberto Gostoli) 
Description CareSim is a demographic and socio-economic model developed with the purpose to simulate the process through which informal child and social care are allocated, The main assumption is that these processes tale place in kinship networks, which are networks connecting the receiving households with the households of people with which the receving household's members have a kin relationship. In these networks, the transmission of both informal and formal care takes place, as for some household may be more convenient to allocate income to child and social care provision rather than members' time. As the informal and formal child and social care provided by households is affected by the child and social care policies, the model includes parameters which represent the policy levers related to these policies. This feature, allows the researcher not only to better forecast the future evolution of child and social care needs, but also to simulate the effects of alternative policies. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2019 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact CareSim is a model allowing policy makers to forecast the evolution of child and social care needs and the way the society will respond to these needs, under the current policy scenario. Moreover, it will allow polciy makers to simulate the effects of alternative social policies designed with the goal to tackle future challenges related to child and social care, as projected by the model. Therefore, the model gives policy makers the opportunity to make policy decisions informed by the demographic and social knowledge underlying the model's structure.

Title Covid-19: Agent-based model of pandemic progression and effectiveness of mitigation strategies (Stefano Picascia) 
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.

Title Free School Meals 
Description Data from official Scottish Government sources were used to investigate the hypotheses outlined above. School meals data was obtained from the Scottish Government's Healthy Living Survey (HLS), an annual census of all publicly-funded Scottish schools, collected in a single week in February 2014. The data analysed was collected for 342 schools (with an additional 20 being lost to missing data) and 36,086 pupils. Data on school buildings was obtained via the 2014 School Estates Core Facts Survey in which local authorities collect information on the size, condition, suitability and capacity of all publicly-funded schools. The survey allows for the ongoing monitoring of school refurbishment. The two datasets were linked using school and local authority names as identifiers. An additional explanatory variable was the price paid for a meal. This data was derived by accessing pricing information via local authority or school websites. Official Scottish Government data (Scottish Government, 2014) provided information on the percentage of the population within each local authority falling into one of six categories: Large Urban, Other Urban, accessible Small Towns, Remote Small Towns, Accessible Rural, Remote Rural. We combined 'neighbouring' pairs to reduce this to three categories: Urban, Small Town and Rural.

Title Model of individual behavioural responses to the Covid-19 pandemic (Eric Silverman) 
Description This agent-based model develops a novel behavioural model of individual responses to the Covid-19 pandemic and the risks of being infected, or infecting others. The simulation incorporates an SEIR model of pandemic spread alongside the behavioural model, allowing us to simulate the feedback process wherein agent behaviour is influenced by the pandemic, which in turn influences the course of the pandemic itself. This behavioural model has now been incorporated into our other simulation work on social care, and can be extended to other simulation frameworks as well. 
Type Of Material Computer model/algorithm 
Year Produced 2021 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact This simulation model represents a step forward in the simulation of pandemic outcomes, in that it directly simulates the impact of individual behaviour on the course of the pandemic. In most pandemic simulations, agents are represented simply as vectors for disease transmission, with their behaviour being modified by restrictions but not by their own perception of personal risk. Our model fundamentally changes this picture, by allowing agents to have heterogeneous risk tolerances, which provides a more accurate picture of the challenges facing policy-makers, given that compliance with restrictions is unlikely to be universal. Since our publication of the model in ABMHub 2021, we have been invited to submit an extension of the paper to the Artificial Life journal, and received enquiries from a US-based simulation group that is also working on behavioural modelling of the pandemic.

Title Neural networks for cellular automata classification (Eric Silverman) 
Description This is a first effort at training a neural network, specifically a convolutional neural network, to recognise complex behaviour in cellular automata (CAs). CAs are simple systems that nonetheless display highly complex behaviours, and this network learns to classify CAs by their level of complexity. This early-stage theoretical work is intended as a first step toward an automated system for recognising and categorising emergent/complex behaviour in computer simulation outputs, which will assist in the analysis and understanding of complex models. This initial effort is available as a GitHub repository and is written using Mathematica code. Results were published as an extended abstract for the ALIFE 2019 conference, and will appear in the conference proceedings from MIT Press after the conference.

Title Shirt Sponsorship by Gambling Companies in the English and Scottish Premier Leagues: global reach and public health concerns 
Description While the nature of gambling practices is contested, a strong evidence base demonstrates that gambling can become a serious disorder and have a range of detrimental effects for individuals, communities and societies. Over the last decade, football in the UK has become visibly entwined with gambling marketing. To explore this apparent trend, we tracked shirt sponsors in both the English and Scottish Premier Leagues since 1992 and found a pronounced increase in the presence of sponsorship by gambling companies. This increase occurred at the same time the Gambling Act 2005, which liberalised rules, was introduced. We argue that current levels of gambling sponsorship in UK football, and the global visibility it provides to gambling brands, is a public health concern that needs to be debated and addressed. We recommend that legislators re-visit the relationship between football in the UK and the sponsorship it receives from the gambling industry.

Title Social Care ABM for Sensitivity Analysis (Eric Silverman) 
Description This is a new version of an agent-based model of social care provision in the UK. This version has been modified to generate large numbers of simulation outputs at varied parameter settings generated by the LPtau method. These outputs are combined into a single file which can then be used as input to uncertainty quantification methods such as Gaussian Process Emulation or neural network regression, which can then produce a 'model of the model' that can be analysed in-depth. This analysis can proceed much more quickly than running the full simulation for the same number of steps, allowing for more robust uncertainty quantification.

Year Produced 2018

Impact This model has been the centrepiece of a research project currently in preparation, which is the first known attempt to train neural networks to replicate the outputs of an agent-based simulation. Preliminary results indicate that neural networks can replicate the complex, non-linear behaviour of agent-based models far better than previously-used methods, which is likely to have a substantial influence on the uncertainty quantification literature and the applied ABM community.

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.

Description Modelling collaboration with Centre for Virus Research (Eric Silverman) 
Organisation University of Glasgow
Department MRC - University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Dr Eric Silverman, Dr Stefano Picascia and Dr Umberto Gostoli have developed a collaborative research initiative with Prof David L Robertson of the Centre for Virus Research, University of Glasgow. We are developing a simulation model combining an agent-based simulation of SARS-CoV-2 spread with a linked evolutionary model of viral evolution. This simulation will allow us to investigate the potential dangers of future variants of SARS-CoV-2, and how those variants will be affected by changes in public health policy and vaccine distribution, which may change the selection pressures imposed upon the virus.
Collaborator Contribution Prof Robertson has contributed by evaluating the early results of our initial model, providing details of the possible mutations of SARS-CoV-2 and how they affect the properties of the virus, and directing us toward relevant research in viral genomics and evolutionary biology.
Impact Early-stage outputs include a simulation model of SARS-CoV-2 spread incorporating competing variants and vaccines with waning immunity.

PI Contribution Dr Umberto Gostoli and myself, following my seminar at St Andrews House for the Health and Social Care Analysis, were contacted by members of Scottish Government with an interest in producing policy advice relating to social care provision. Subsequently over the course of two in-person meetings we have a agreed a plan of action to begin producing an updated version of our social care simulation model to examine the possible outcomes of proposed changes to social care policy in Scotland. Our contribution will be additional modifications to our simulation model, further parameterising the simulation using empirical data, and producing and analysing results from the simulations.
Collaborator Contribution Our partners in Scottish Government will provide empirical data for use in our simulation, where possible, and will arrange meetings between our team and relevant user groups, practitioners and policy-makers. They may be able to provide material support for the research when the additional work required is outside the scope of our normal modelling work.
Impact Near-term outputs expected include a modified version of the simulation, which will be shared publicly via GitHub, and papers documenting the results of these first modifications.

Title CLOCK OFF intervention (AnneMartin) 
Description CLOCK OFF - Intervention development - A peer influence approach to reduce night-time use of interactive electronic devices (IED) and social media among adolescents This study aims to develop and refine a peer-led school-based programme which aims to reduce night-time IED and social media use among adolescents (12-13 years). We will conduct a series of interactive online workshops with schools, parents and young people to develop an intervention consisting of three parts: (1) a peer-led approach which involves students identifying influential members of their year group to be trained as peer supporters. Peer supporters will be trained to share messages about the impacts of night-time IED and social media use among students in their year; (2) Sleep Scotland's programme (Sound Sleep) which includes teaching materials on the importance of sleep, training for older pupils to act as Sleep Mentors who promote the importance of sleep and act as sources of advice, and a parent/carer information pack detailing how they can support improved sleep; (3) Sleepy Teens program which include a social media at night-time survey for young people to complete and results will be provided to schools to include in their lesson plan, teaching slides for teachers to use, and a parent intervention. We will involve schools and young people who have received the Sound Sleep program as well as those who have not. The outcomes of this study are threefold: (1) insight into how young people understand the links between night-time use of social media & IED and sleep and mental health, (2) a co-produced programme theory and (3) developed intervention combining the peer-led approach, Sleep Scotland's Sound Sleep program and Sleepy Teens program. This will inform the next stage of the complex intervention framework, namely feasibility testing of the developed intervention.

Title STASH Intervention (Sexually Transmitted infections And Sexual Health) 
Description STASH is a school-based and peer-led sexual health intervention in which influential students (nominated by their peers) are trained to deliver positive sexual health messages to their year group via face-to-face conversation and social media. The intervention is an adaption of an effective school-based smoking prevention intervention called ASSIST. The feasibility and acceptability of STASH has been examined via an exploratory trial of 6 schools, funded by the National Institute of Health Research (completed in 2019). The costs of delivering the intervention were met by the Scottish Government and Edinburgh and Lothian Health Foundation. STASH was found to be acceptable and feasible with the weight of evidence supportive of continuation to a larger scale evaluation. The next step is to apply for funding to undertake this trial. 
Type Preventative Intervention - Behavioural risk modification

Title STASH: Digital resources for young people's Sexual Health designed for peer-to-peer sharing via social media 
Description The STASH website houses a set of curated sexual health resources designed to be shared between peers via social media. The original STASH website was designed for the NIHR funded STASH feasibility trial [Moore 14/182/14]. Since the end of the Trial, we have used funding from the Scottish Government to implement key changes based on the findings of the feasibility trial. Specifically, these were: flexibility to share on any social media platform (previous site was linked to Facebook), enhanced search function and organisation of resources to make them easier to find, an escape button, simplified log in; improved design for both mobile and computer. 
Type Preventative Intervention - Physical/Biological risk modification
Current Stage Of Development Refinement. Non-clinical
Year Development Stage Completed 2020

Impact To our knowledge the STASH website is unique as a resource specifically designed to support sharing of sexual health resources via social media. It attempts to bring together the 'best of the web' in terms of accessible and quality information on sexual health. We intend to apply for funding to trial its use in a full evaluation of the STASH intervention, and we are investigating options for broader roll out.

Title: Parenting for Preventing Risk of Child Maltreatment in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs): Updated Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Authors: Jamie M. Lachman, Frances Gardner, Wendy Knerr, G.J. Melendez-Torres, Julie Riddell, Amalee R. McCoy, Zuyi Fang, Daniel Wight

Abstract: Introduction: In recent years, parenting interventions for reducing child maltreatment in low-and-middle-income countries have risen sharply up the global policy agenda. If policy is linked to evidence, we would expect to see a corresponding rise in rigorous evaluations of parenting programs in these countries, and hence, need for critical synthesis of this new evidence.

Objective: We aimed to update our well-cited 2013 systematic review (Prevention Science; k=12 RCTs) on this topic, and to reexamine the evidence base in low-resource countries, including main effects and country-level moderators.

Methods: Results were synthesized from randomized and high-quality quasi-experimental evaluations of parenting programs for families with children aged 2-17. Searches included global and regional electronic databases unrestricted by language, as well as unpublished grey literature, trial registries, and communication with experts. We used well-powered robust variance estimation meta-analysis to examine intervention effects on multiple indices of primary outcomes of child maltreatment and harsh parenting, and secondary outcomes of positive parenting, and child behavior.

Results: Searches identified 69 randomized trials of parenting programs. Data extraction and meta-analysis is underway and will be completed by May 2019.

Conclusion: Our finding of a more than 5-fold increase in number of RCTs reflect a surge of interest in obtaining rigorous evidence to inform policy on parenting and maltreatment prevention in LMICs. We discuss findings in relation to study quality/risk of bias; the extent to which predictors of effect heterogeneity at country level can be found; and lessons that can be learned for policy makers and prevention researchers.
