I work within the Multiple Risk Behaviour Group within Decipher to identify sociological theories of risk behaviour in young people.

Activities / Findings

Pandora Pound is a Research Fellow working on a synthesis of qualitative studies of young people’s views and experiences of their sexual health education. This is one of four work packages conducted within the NIHR School for Public Health Research, the ultimate aim of which is to develop a multi-component universal sexual health education intervention for young people. This project is funded by the National Institute for Health Research School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR).

Pandora is also working with colleagues to develop methods for identifying and synthesising sociological theories that can be used to inform public health interventions for young people. She has considerable experience in qualitative methodologies, including expertise in qualitative synthesis.

In addition, Pandora is conducting a retrospective harm-benefit assessment in selected areas of animal research. The need to acknowledge the harms experienced by animals in research is inreasingly recognised. This study aims to explore the feasibility of systematically extracting data on harms from reports of animal research and of linking these to data on methodological quality and clinical utility.
