The Centre for Technology Enabled Health Research (CTEHR) have been involved in an innovative project launched by BBC Learning and the Wellcome Trust.
Terrific Scientific is a major 18 month UK-wide campaign to bring practical science into the classroom and into our homes. Instead of lab coats and test tubes, the campaign will urge pupils, teachers and parents across the UK to grab lemons, leaves, tap water and other everyday items to join in with exciting and accessible mass-participation investigations. Aimed at upper primary school level, Terrific Scientific will help deliver the objectives of the science curricula for 9-11 year olds across the UK.
Supported by Professor Jacqueline Blissett, Professor in Health Behaviour & Change at Coventry University, the Taste investigation will kick-off the campaign as it goes ‘live’ in January 2017 with learning activities and resources looking at taste, the food we eat and how we process it. Jackie has designed the activities and studies to help children understand why some people really hate their Brussels sprouts and for some people they are the best part of Christmas!
The ‘supertaster test’ explains that those with many more taste buds than usual are much more sensitive to certain tastes and flavours, which means that some foods can often taste very bitter. See for yourself whether you are likely to be a ‘supertaster’ by visiting the BBC #TerrificScientific supertaster page!
The ultimate aim of this intervention is to empower mothers to breastfeed for as long as they wish. An associated increase in breastfeeding duration would result in reduced incidence of maternal and infant disease.
In order to improve public health we aim to improve the available information and behavioural support for infant feeding, and improve access to it via the web and smart phones since their use is becoming prolific. The main objective of this project is to develop a low cost, high reach intervention that can aid healthcare professionals in proactively delivering consistent, evidence based support to all mothers, in a format which is acceptable to all mothers, their partners and their clinicians, but particularly to those mothers least served by current services, without adding considerably to staff workload.
The aim of this project is to use a mixed method approach incorporating patient and public engagement to comprehensively evaluate across the three intervention sites.
The WREN Project will assess the feasibility of delivering a web-based cardiac rehabilitation intervention (ACTIVATEYOUR HEART) for those who decline or drop out from conventional supervised cardiac rehab. The feasibility trial will collect qualitative and quantitative data to inform the design of a definitive largescale multi-centre trial.
