The Health Services Research UK’s 16th annual conference will be held from 4 to 6 July 2023 in person at the University of Birmingham. For those who are unable to join in person, it will be offering an online option allowing access to the conference platform and on-demand content.
The conference committee is developing an exciting programme with high quality speakers from across the UK, covering key issues for the HSR community. There will be some great plenary sessions, practical and interactive workshops, HSR learning and development sessions and the opportunity as always to showcase and discuss your research.
The aging population, with the growing burden of chronic conditions and multimorbidity, is constantly increasing the demand for more comprehensive, efficient and smarter personalized care delivery based on innovative solutions. For this reason, the transformation of health systems in Europe with the design, development and implementation of innovative digital solutions, ensuring systems’ sustainability is highly needed.
In this framework, JADECARE, the EU funded “Joint Action on digitally enabled integrated person-centred care”, aims to contribute to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems providing expertise to assist the European Countries in undertaking health system reforms. It intends to support the transformation of health systems by successfully addressing the transfer and adoption of four “original Good Practices” (oGPs) to 21 other settings of “Next Adopters” (NAs).
JADECARE involves partners from 16 European countries holding different levels of penetration, adoption and maturity of integrated care, providing a complete scenario of different idiosyncrasies. The project started on October 1st, 2020 and ends on September 30th, 2023.
The challenge of this JA is to transfer innovations that have proven to be successful to heterogeneous and complex healthcare environments by adapting the practices to be transferred to the local needs, situation, capabilities, resources, plans, strategies and current implementations of the NAs.
For this reason, great focus has been dedicated to the preparation of the local environments. During the pre-implementation phase the 21 NAs identified more than 150 needs and defined 64 interventions and action plans that will target more than 4 million inhabitants.
Health Services Research UK (HSR UK) is dedicated to the promotion of health services research in policy and practice. The annual conference is open to everyone interested in health and care services and systems research, both based in the UK and internationally, and offers you the opportunity to:
