In this talk Michael Hayes will focus on three themes in population health (language, ambivalence and relevance) as they relate to the intersection of research, practice and policy. The language of population health is sloppy and inconsistent, which has implications for both theorizing what’s going on and communicating with others (in the sphere of population health and outside of it). Ambivalence concerns both indifference and indeterminism and will be touched on. Relevance will be discussed in relation to the differing positions, constraints and aspirations operating in the realms of research, practice and policy.
