The HealthWatch Symposium 2019: Evidence, Healthcare and Medical Devices & Implants is now open to members and student members!
It takes place on Monday 17 June 2019 from 1pm to 4.30pm at St Luke's Community Centre in central London. Giving presentations, we have:
- Prof Carl Heneghan, professor of Evidence-Based Medicine and Director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, Oxford University, Oxford
- Deborah Cohen, investigative Journalist, British Medical Journal and BBC, London
- Prof Peter McCulloch, professor of Surgical Science and Practice and Chair of the IDEAL Collaboration, Oxford University, Oxford
The aim of the symposium is to clarify the current issues facing evidence based healthcare in the field of implants and medical devices and to identify areas where organisations (including HealthWatch) might most productively concentrate their efforts.
We have an impressive set of introductory speakers and of discussion group participants, and the symposium offers us a real opportunity to bring some clarity of thinking to a difficult area.
Your input to the process, through full participation in the discussion groups and feedback, means you will be an active participant in the process, not just a passive audience member.
We are particularly keen that student members take up some of our places, and can offer up to £30 support towards travel costs for those from outside London who need it.
There are only 40 places available (over and above our invited speakers and discussants), so please register soon if you want to secure a place.
