Abstract

The main goal of this project has been threefold: first, to create an hboxintegrated course system under the name 'Behavioural Science' in which students of medicine and health sciences are provided with a set of social and behavioural sciences applicable to medicine; second, to develop a health status monitoring system by means of two surveys (Hungarostudy which collects data on the health status of the Hungarian adult population, and South Plain Youth Study which gathers data on the health status of the adolescent population); and third, to apply theoretical knowledge and empirical research results in the field of practice. In this case, practical prevention programmes and skills development training are planned and implemented. The phases are built on each other and multiple feedback systems are used to integrate them into a joint transdisciplinary project. The methods contained six main steps: (1) to collect the most relevant statistical data about the population's health status, health needs and professional and public knowledge; (2) to apply a biopsychosocial approach to evaluate the statistical data and understand its background; (3) to introduce the biopsychosocial model in medical/health science courses; (4) to carry out surveys to collect information on the psychosocial aspects of the population's health status, based on the biopsychosocial model; (5) to evaluate data from the surveys (Hungarostudy, South Plain Region Youth Study) and to develop prevention programmes and skills training; (6) to get continuous feedback from prevention programmes, including the updated statistical data. dent A system based theory was applied which provided a line of theories which contributed to the development of a systematic concept of transdisciplinary research.
