Professor Chris Bonell, University College London
3 March 2015
This presentation on combining qualitative and quantitative results for systematic reviews focussed on three reviews carried out on school environment effects on student health. One examined the effectiveness of “Health Promoting Schools” interventions. The second examined multi-level studies of the health effects of the school environment in the absence of specific intervention. The final review examined qualitative research on the mechanisms by which schools might help or hinder health. The combination of these results is discussed, as is the experience in this area more broadly at the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre at the Institute of Education.
