ADPH Impact Report – Summary

April 5, 2018 in ADPH Updates, Publications by admin


In summer 2017 ADPH commissioned Shared Intelligence to carry out research into the impact of the Association and to recommend ways in which its impact could be increased. You may view here some key notes of the main findings. ADPH have taken this feedback on board and are working towards implementation of an action plan to address these points.

The review focussed on assessing the ADPH’s impact in these three areas:

  • supporting DsPH in their role;
  • influencing the framework and context within which DsPH operate;
  • and influencing policy nationally on public health and health and wellbeing more widely.

The report is based on three sources of evidence: an online survey of DsPH in the membership of ADPH (61 responses were received); interviews with 12 senior stakeholders; and interview with 30 DsPH. An overview of the report was presented to the ADPH Board and at the ADPH Annual Conference in November and the final report also draws on these discussions.
