Our programme of work around social prescribing seeks to generate robust evidence about what works, for whom, and in what ways in linking individuals from primary care (often their GP) to social interventions have the potential to improve health and wellbeing.
We are partnering with Cornwall Council’s Public Health Team and the national charity Autistica for this PhD studentship, in which we plan to assess whether the social prescribing of horticulture therapy is feasible, acceptable and associated with positive outcomes for higher functioning autistic adults.
Methods to investigate this will be developed between the student and supervisory team, however we anticipate approaches to include the synthesis of existing literature and other data, patient pathway analyses and mixed-method data collection to assess outcomes and the ways in which these outcomes are thought to be accrued.
