Professor Mike Kelly, Part 2 (Institute of Public Health & University of Cambridge and ex-Director of NICE)

December 2019

This is the second instalment of the 2-part Christmas Special with Professor Mike Kelly. If you haven’t listened to part 1, why not do them in order!

In part 1 of our discussion, we covered Mike's own experience working in public health across a huge range of research topics from the prevention of non-communicable disease to end of life care, all of which have close links to behaviour change and other social matters.

In part 2 we discuss the application of behaviour change theories in the real world. Mike speaks about creating NICE guidance and how evidence is, sometimes incorrectly, used when creating interventions. We also cover the issue of inequalities and how he personally uses behavioural science in his everyday life.
