Sexual & Reproductive Health Group
The Sexual and Reproductive Health Research Group is part of the Research Department of Reproductive Health within the Institute for Women’s Health The Group Aims: To improve evidence based sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care through excellence in research, training, service enhancement and knowledge transfer Key Objectives are to: 1) Carry out SRH research with an impact on clinical and public health practice and policy through multidisciplinary collaboration and engagement of patients and the public 2) Contribute to knowledge transfer and promote evidence-based practice and policy locally, nationally and globally 3) Increase research capacity through academic support and training in SRH research skills The Group’s current research portfolio falls under four themes: • Contraception and safe abortion care (Lead Dr. Sue Mann) • Sexually Transmitted Infections (Lead Dr Sangeeta Dave) • Pre-pregnancy Health and Care (Lead Dr Jill Shawe) • Service Innovation and Integration (Dr Sue Mann) An external review in 2009 (http://www.instituteforwomenshealth.ucl.ac.uk/review/), chaired by Sir John Pattison, concluded that the SRH research programme was “well established, grant funded, productive and internationally competitive. The work has led to significant contributions to sex education, screening for infection and more recently, contraceptive use. This programme is supported by substantial grants and papers in high-impact journals have resulted. There was a very clear development of strategy in this area, particularly in the area of contraceptive uptake and use. It is notable that UCL has one of the few clinical academic professors in the UK undertaking contraceptive research“ Impact: Significant achievements in terms of knowledge transfer and impact were noted in the Pattison review. Projects have informed methodology, practice and policy at national level, including the CONSORT Statement on trials of non-pharmacological interventions, NICE Guidance on Chlamydia screening, the National Audit Office report on Chlamydia Screening, the Teenage Pregnancy Strategy and the Department of Health Recommendations for Sexual Health Services. The RCOG report on the future of women’s health services (“High Quality Women’s Health Care: a proposal for change, July 2011) draws fundamentally and directly on a paper prepared by members of the SRH Research Group: “A Life course Perspective on Women’s Health and its implications for Health Service Delivery” RCOG, August 2011.
