Time: 12:30:00 - 13:45:00

Speaker: Professor Bernie Hannigan- Director- Research, Translation & Innovation Public Health England Abstract: Generating and disseminating evidence and enhancing the knowledge base for health services and practice are core activities for many in higher education and in health systems. But how well do we understand the ways in which the provision of evidence impacts on public health services? Public Health England collates, analyses and presents evidence – as do similar organisations – so we need to know we are influencing decision-making for the better.

22 June, 2018 - Frontiers of Digital Health: Digital Health & the Future of Healthcare

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Healthcare is quickly moving from a generic, reactive, care model to a personalized, proactive, care model. This tectonic change is being driven by a combination of BigData, Artificial Intelligence, and an explosion of IoT – technologies that complement each other and provide a positive feedback loop, further accelerating improvements to healthcare. These bring a plethora of challenges that I will discuss in this talk, including making data analytics timely and relevant; creating safer medical devices; implementing IoT effectively and safely in clinical settings; and making regulatory systems and risk management fit-for-purpose to deliver health technologies that are innovative, empowering… and also safe.

18 October, 2018 - Webinar: Key data - Longitudinal data

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Hosted by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce the wide range of longitudinal datasets available at the organisation. This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the wide range of longitudinal datasets available via the UK Data Service. The Service provides access to various types of longitudinal data. One of these are the British Birth Cohort Studies (e.g. the National Child Development Study 1958 and The Millennium Cohort Study) which follow the same group of children born in a specific year throughout their lives, tracking changes and unravelling the reasons behind them. Another type is the successor of BHPS, Understanding Society, an innovative and world-leading study about lives and its changes in the UK in the 21st century. And finally, there are other studies such as the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing focusing on later life, following certain age cohorts and shedding light on their specific experiences over time.
