Why and how does caste discrimination impact upon the inner lives of both the perpetrators and their victims? This event is supported by UCL's Grand Challenge of Inter-cultural Interaction, UCL Office for International Affairs, UCL Science, Medicine and Society Network, & Research Councils UK India.

In the lead-up to Anti-Bullying Week 2015, the event will introduce third and public sector stakeholders to the most recent findings from three of Britain’s internationally-renowned cohort studies: Next Steps, the Millennium Cohort Study and the National Child Development Study. We have chosen this topic as it takes advantage of the unique opportunity provided by the proximity of the Festival (7-14 November) to Anti-Bullying Week (16-20 November). At the time of the Festival, anti-bullying organisations, local and national government will be preparing awareness campaigns on this year’s theme of bullying and mental health. In previous years, longitudinal evidence has featured prominently in the Anti-Bullying Week campaigns. By bringing together leading academics, practitioners and campaigners, this event stands to generate some direct impact for the social sciences.

13 November, 2015 - Public Health Science: A National Conference Dedicated to New Research in UK Public Health

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:00:00

LSHTM, UCL, UK Health Forum, and The Lancet invite abstract submissions for Public Health Science 2015. The core of the event will consist of submitted papers, and peer-reviewed abstracts will be published by The Lancet, online and in print. Abstracts can be submitted under any of the following three themes: creativity and innovation in public health science; new methodological approaches to public health science; and implementing public health science in policy and practice. We believe that part of the success of this event is the high quality of public health science and diversity of methods presented. As well as providing a forum for innovative research, the day culminates in a final session focusing on implementation of science in policy and practice. Since its inception the conference has brought together early career researchers and senior academics, creating a unique environment for learning and collaboration that we hope will strengthen UK Public Health science.

Time: 14:00:00 -

Open to those involved in the delivery of care for older people As our population ages we are seeing an increase in the proportion of older people and those living with frailty, many of whom have complex and multiple needs. A group of people from across healthcare, social care and the voluntary sector, are keen to come together as a London-wide community of practice to share ideas, the challenges they have encountered in managing this complex population, and similarly learn from the experiences of others. This community of practice is open to anyone with an interest in planning or delivering care and support to older people. We would be delighted if you or your colleagues would like to join - all that is required is enthusiasm to share and learn! Each event will include presentations on innovative practice from keynote speakers (which will be confirmed nearer the time) and include time for group discussion and networking.
