9 February, 2016 - Lessons from applying the emotional resilience evidence base into practice

Time: 17:15:00 - 19:00:00

The evidence base for interventions which build emotional resilience in vulnerable adolescents is limited and there are few examples of implementation in the UK. This Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) talk will describe a pilot programme (Newham HeadStart) in Newham, London which has sought to develop such an approach through implementing a number of evidence based resilience interventions into practice across the population. It will focus on challenges which have been encountered in doing so and some of the lessons for implementation of such preventative interventions. The talk is by Dr Simon Munk, Emotional Resilience Lead at UCLPartners and Children and Young People Mental Health and Resilience Strategic Lead for the London Borough of Newham. Aimed at researchers, providers, commissioners and school staff.

22 February, 2016 - Climate Change and Global Citizenship: the post-Paris agenda

Time: 18:00:00 - 20:00:00

Global citizenship is a much-loved rhetorical device for those who inhabit the world of international politics, with a long and honourable backstory. But it rarely translates into any substantive impacts on global policy-making or legal processes, and has literally zero resonance with the vast majority of global citizens! However, it’s already clear that decisions taken over the last few years regarding measures deemed necessary to address the challenge of accelerating climate change are now starting to change all that – and these measures represent just the tiniest sliver of what will need to be put in place over the next couple of decades. Which must surely mark the period during which the concept of Global Citizenship, at long last, grows up. A drinks reception will follow in the North Cloisters.

29 February, 2016 - Self-care, shared care: rethinking the management of long-term conditions

Time: 14:00:00 - 18:00:00

With new technologies (patient-controlled electronic health records, unprecedented access to health information, wearables and sensors for monitoring, novel digital interventions, etc.) there are great new opportunities for prevention and for managing long-term conditions. There is also a financial push: as more becomes possible, it will be necessary to manage more care outside clinical settings, with people taking greater responsibility for their own and their families’ health. These changes present new challenges: in re-thinking the role of the patient, of their family and friends, of the clinician and the system of care, and in reviewing what is and should be possible using digital technologies. In this event, we will present ongoing research into digitally-enabled approaches to supporting self-care and shared care. Part of UCL's Festival for Digital Health.
