About Cecile Marie Dupin

My first university work concerned factors contributing to health in different populations, particularly within pygmy groups in South Cameroon, then on the health needs of children in immigrant families in Canada. Using a reflexive approach, I then moved into nursing practice and explored the health representations for the homeless and for nurses looking after them.

As part of my doctoral thesis, I was carrying out a research programme, underpinned by  epistemology and sociology, exploring and describing nursing research in France. This programme used mixed methods and has worked in association with Karlstad University in Sweden.

Since September 2013, I have worked as a research fellow in the Chair INPES "Health promotion" at the EHESP (French School of Public Health). I was in charge of the realistic evaluation of the complex intervention research  aiming to reduce social inequality in health care relative to cancer in Pays de Redon – South Brittany. I was focusing on the programme theory and implementation factors. 


As a Registered Nurse, I specialised in primary nursing care for homeless people. At the same time, I studied at Montpellier III University and Quebec University at Trois-Rivières in Canada, in nursing science, and health and social prevention. I have completed a doctoral thesis in Public Health at Paris VI University and the French EHESP doctoral network in 2015. I was also a student at the European Academy of Nursing Sciences (EANS, 2010-2013) and did a Master's in Science Political Arts at Sciences Po Paris. Between 2014 and 2015 I was a post doc fellow in health promotion at the EHESP.
