Strategies To Disseminate Chronic Disease Prevention Programs In Community Settings
Dr Sean O’Connor is a physiotherapist and researcher at the Centre for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast. Sean completed a PhD investigating physical activity-based self-management interventions for chronic musculo-skeletal pain disorders. He has since worked on studies exploring the development and evaluation of digital interventions in various chronic illness populations. This includes current projects looking at secondary prevention of cardiovascular risk through lifestyle modifications. Sean has an interest in theory-based implementation models for maximising integration of evidence into practice, as well as in systematic review methods, including methodological quality / risk of bias assessment, and the examination of stakeholder perspectives. Sean is looking forward to working with an expert international group, developing his systematic review skills, and contributing to evidence that can be effectively applied to inform decision-making in a public health context.
