London South Bank University

Course Introduction

This theme focuses specifically on children, young people and their associated family members and is cross'departmental within the School of Health and Social Care. Academics across the School promote understanding of children and young people's experiences of illness, health, disability and those in disadvantaged circumstances through a user'centred, integrated programme of research, service evaluation and consultation. By using a broad range of innovative but robust research techniques of engagement with children, young people and families research aims to build an evidence base to influence both policy and practice that is locally relevant and applicable nationally and internationally.
