7th Annual Research Symposium

25 Apr 2019
10.55AM - 5.00PM
19 Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh, EH12 5BH

Healthcare Improvement Scotland is jointly hosting a symposium with Health Services Research Unit and the Health Economics Research Unit at the University of Aberdeen, and the Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit at the Chief Scientist Office.

The symposium takes place on Thursday 25th April 2019, 9.55am to 4pm (registration and refreshments from 9.30am) at COSLA conference centre, 19 Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh EH12 5BH.

The concept of value based healthcare has recently come to prominence in discussions of how to  maximise population and individual health. The Chief Medical Officer in her report on Realistic  Medicine drew on this model in setting a vision of healthcare in Scotland. What is meant by value, and how this is understood, established and measured in different situations challenges researchers and clinicians. This one day research symposium will bring together academics, healthcare staff and other interested groups to consider both current research in Scotland and the evidence needed by decision makers to support them in providing value in health and social care.

The programme includes:

  • Stirling Bryan, Scientific Director, BC SUPPORT Unit, Canada
  • Richard Norris, Honorary Fellow, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh
  • Irene Oldfather, Programme Director, Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland
  • Shaun Treweek, Chair in Health Services Research, University of Aberdeen
  • Derek Yuille, Deputy Director of Finance, NHS Lanarkshire
