Recovery and Renewal: The future of Primary Care Research
Dr Greg Irving
Thursday 1st July 2021
The pandemic has posed the greatest challenge to the NHS in living memory and research played a vital role in shaping the NHS response.
Primary care research played a vital role in shaping the NHS response from developing tools to rapidly identify those at high risk of adverse outcomes through to evaluating interventions to treat and protect patients.
As the UK now moves into a phase of recovery and renewal, we ask what the priorities are for primary care research – and the opportunities and challenges it may bring.
Politics, post-truth and Covid-19
Professor Trish Greenhalgh
Thursday 14 January, 12-1pm
Trish Greenhalgh is Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences and Fellow of Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford. She studied Medical, Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge and Clinical Medicine at Oxford before training first as a diabetologist and later as an academic general practitioner. She has a doctorate in diabetes care and an MBA in Higher Education Management. She leads a programme of research at the interface between the social sciences and medicine, working across primary and secondary care.
Her work seeks to celebrate and retain the traditional and the humanistic aspects of medicine and healthcare while also embracing the unparalleled opportunities of contemporary science and technology to improve health outcomes and relieve suffering. Three particular interests are the health needs and illness narratives of minority and disadvantaged groups; the introduction of technology-based innovations in healthcare; and the complex links (philosophical and empirical) between research, policy and practice.
Trish is the author of over 400 peer-reviewed publications and 16 textbooks. She was awarded the OBE for Services to Medicine by Her Majesty the Queen in 2001 and made a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences in 2014. She is also a Fellow of the UK Royal College of Physicians, Royal College of General Practitioners, Faculty of Clinical Informatics and Faculty of Public Health.
