CHPR 200: SPRC/GMD Research Seminar

Focus is on research on prevention of chronic disease and related topics. Guest speakers present material. CHPR students enroll for a letter grade.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

CHPR 206: Meta-research: Appraising Research Findings, Bias, and Meta-analysis (HRP 206, MED 206, STATS 211)

Open to graduate, medical, and undergraduate students. Appraisal of the quality and credibility of research findings; evaluation of sources of bias. Meta-analysis as a quantitative (statistical) method for combining results of independent studies. Examples from medicine, epidemiology, genomics, ecology, social/behavioral sciences, education. Collaborative analyses. Project involving generation of a meta-research project or reworking and evaluation of an existing published meta-analysis. Prerequisite: knowledge of basic statistics.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit

CHPR 212: Methods for Health Care Delivery Innovation, Implementation and Evaluation (HRP 218, MED 212)

Preference given to postgraduate fellows and graduate students. Focus is on implementation science and evaluation of health care delivery innovations. Topics include implementation science theory, frameworks, and measurement principles; qualitative and quantitative approaches to designing and evaluating new health care models; hybrid design trials that simultaneously evaluate implementation and effectiveness; distinction between quality improvement and research, and implications for regulatory requirements and publication; and grant-writing strategies for implementation science and evaluation. Students will develop a mock (or actual) grant proposal to conduct a needs assessment or evaluate a Stanford/VA/community intervention, incorporating concepts, frameworks, and methods discussed in class. Priority for enrollment for CHPR 212 will be given to CHPR master's students.
Terms: Win | Units: 2 | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit

CHPR 213: Healthy/Sustainable Food Systems: Maximum Sustainability across Health, Economics, and Environment (HUMBIO 113S)

(HumBio students must enroll in HumBio 113S) Discussion-based seminar. Focus on problems with and systems-based solutions to food system issues. Four particular settings are addressed: University, worksite, hospital, and school food. Traditional vs. disruptive food system models compared and contrasted. The goal is to determine how best to maximize sustainability across several dimensions, including health, economics, and the environment. Underlying class themes include social justice and the potential for changing social norms around food production and consumption.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Gardner, C. (PI)

CHPR 223: Obesity in America: Clinical and Public Health Implications (HUMBIO 123)

(HumBio students must enroll in HumBio 123.)Interdisciplinary clinical, research, and policy approaches. The prevalence, predictors, and consequences of obesity and diabetes; biological and physiological mechanisms; clinical treatments including medications and surgery; and the relevance of behavioral, environmental, economic, and policy approaches to obesity prevention and control. Prerequisite: Human Biology core or equivalent, or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Rosas, L. (PI)

CHPR 228: Theoretical Foundations and Design of Behavioral Intervention Trials

Focuses on the knowledge and skills, respect and thoughtful practice of designing health promotion interventions that are relevant, theoretically-informed, have broad impacts, and can endure. Provides an in-depth review of intervention approaches for health promotion and disease prevention and covers the leading theories of behavior change. Follows an integrative model to demonstrate similarities and differences between the theoretical approaches, seeking what is useful and worthwhile in each theoretical model rather than looking primarily for what is most easily criticized. Practical in nature with emphasis on the specifics of needs assessments and intervention development and delivery and how these may vary across community settings, with diverse populations, addressing different behaviors, and leveraging traditional and emerging delivery channels. Explores intervention creation, delivery, effectiveness, and sustainability to identify and better understand the resources and other practical considerations necessary to produce, deliver, monitor, and disseminate an intervention with demonstrated effectiveness. Examples drawn from across the behavioral spectrum and include tobacco control, physical activity, healthy diet, stress and distress, as well as consideration of the complexities of extending interventions to target multiple risk behaviors. Students develop a foundational understanding of behavior change theory, rigorous research methods, and creative design strategies to advance the health of individuals and communities.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

CHPR 239: Program Internship and Engagement (PIE)

Enrollment limited to students in Master of Science in Community Health and Prevention. This course is designed to provide students in the Master of Science In Community Health & Prevention Research program with supervision and guidance as they conduct their Internships. Focus is on skills which will help students conduct productive Internships with community partners and faculty. Provides a space where students can reflect on their internship experiences and consider how they may connect with their coursework and/or future career aspirations. Students in this course engage regularly in peer learning and mentoring and receive feedback from PIE course instructors. Guest speakers and professional development workshops also an important component of this course.
Terms: Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Thadaney, S. (PI)
