Dr Helen Wilding

Former Research Student

Research overview

Inspired by the health promotion movement's emphasis on healthy public policy and health in all policies, I am interested in how the day to day work of policy practitioners in local government can impact on both the content and process of policy.  I am also interested in whether practices can be changed through practice development and action research approaches.
