Health and Well-Being

This group, led by Dr Atiya Kamal, draws on scientific processes as a means of understanding the relationship between both physiological and psychological symptomatology within the area of health and well-being.

This includes healthy lifestyle behaviours (e.g. physical activity), illness onset (e.g. beliefs and behaviours such as smoking or stress), help-seeking (e.g. patient-practitioner communication), illness adaptation (e.g. behaviour change, coping), and health outcomes (e.g. longevity, quality of life).

In addition, we also research social factors and the wider environmental determinants of health such as health services and policy making.
