began by proposing a definition of childhood.She
then talked about the main theories that researchers are currently using to explain health inequalities, giving examples of how her
own research has helped to inform practice.She
described studies of young people with a close family member in prison, of inter-agency CAMHS support, school health services, Sure Start Programmes, Person-Centred Planning for young people with learning disabilities, studies in young people's sexual health needs, and an evaluation of a Community Mothers Programme.Throughout her
focused on the vulnerability of children -- what makes them vulnerable and what can help to protect them.
In 2000, DeBell
and Jackson published a National Strategy for Practice for school nursing and this is now the base upon which new service development is proceeding (DeBell and Jackson 2000).
Evaluations of Sure Start have been, and continue to be conducted in locations across the country.Yet systematic comparisons have been impossible because of the diversity of research approach.A national evaluation based on longitudinal studies is now underway and this should provide us with evidence of the impact of this major investment in child health. Diane DeBell
concluded by warning against policy that is based on population level research only without taking individual-level and delivery system factors into account.
