DPSEEA is a model developed through the World Health Organization, by Corvalán, Briggss and Kjellstroee references below, that frames environmental health thinking and impacts in terms of drivers/driving forces that generate pressures which lead to a chnage in the state of the environment. This in turn leads to changes in exposure that lead to changes in health effects and outcomes. Across this whole pathway actions can be taken to protect and promote health and wellbeing and reduce the impacts of driving forces and pressures that adversely affect the state of the environment in ways that damage health and wellbeing. This was modied by Morris, Beck, Hanlon and Robertson, to include context. It is context which also influences how exposures take place and effects occur. Context modies how changes in the environment lead to chnages in expsure and effects.
This important framework-model was used in EDPHiS, Environmental Determinants of Public Health in Scotland, see link on this site for more details.

Search for public health evidence
General Public Health
NICE Evidence Search, UK
Allows you to search for systematic reviews from a range of sources all in one place. Evidence Search includes systematic reviews from the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) and other providers. Following the closure of the DARE service, systematic reviews published in PubMed from 1 January 2015 are now added to NICE Evidence Search, making Evidence Search a good place to start when looking for good quality systematic reviews. Every week they search PubMed for new studies using the systematic review filter. A systematic review is added to Evidence Search if it is published by a journal that conforms to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement. Systematic reviews not published by one of these journals are included if the abstract reports the inclusion and exclusion criteria, confirms that 2 or more sources have been searched, and incorporates a synthesis of included studies. To find all systematic reviews within Evidence Search, enter your search terms into the search engine and apply the ‘Systematic Reviews’ types of information filter to your results (click on the ‘Types of information’ filter on the left hand side of the screen, then scroll down and click on ‘Systematic Reviews’).
