A - Short Term e.g. effective management of long term conditions, health checks, tobacco control, physical activity B - Medium Term e.g. strengthen primary care, education, housing, community Engagement, transport C - Long Term Place Shaping e.g. spatial planning, cultural change etc. 2010201520202025 A B C

fuse 6 research themes Healthy ageing research programme Early life and adolescence Behaviour change Health inequalities Translational research Complex systems
Roundtable issues for debate (2) Do we want peer learning network to build on strengths? How are some LAs creating transformational change? Do we need capacity building across the whole local authority including members?
Roundtable issues for debate (3) What can we learn about using impact assessment (including health) as part of a strategic approach to shape places? What has been the impact of using prioritisation tools e.g. fuse research programme ‘Shifting the Centre of Gravity of Spend’?
Roundtable issues for debate (4) How do we measure well-being? What are some indicators? How can we measure the impact of austerity? How can we involve CCGs, policy and practice?
Roundtable issues for debate (5) What might collaborative work around health inequalities involve? What might collaborative work around children and young people involve? How are HWBS working to create fair employment and a healthy standard of living?
Complex systems A tropical rainforest is a metaphor for a complex system Discussion What would a knowledge to action group around HWB Strategies look like? Do we want one?
