Report on the impact of allied health professionals, including arts therapists

Public Health England has published research analysing the impact of allied health professionals on public health.

Public Health England commissioned a team of academics led by Sheffield Hallam University to undertake an initial review to:

  • identify examples where there is good evidence of impact on public health by Allied Health Professionals (AHPs)and therefore an opportunity to broaden practice
  • identify areas which require more focus to demonstrate impact by AHPs on public health

 The research shows the positive effect of music, art and drama therapy but calls for more research to demonstrate the full impact of this work.
