Symposium on Using Information in Management Decision-Making

By Paul M Taylor, on 16 August 2011

On the 15th September UCL is hosting a symposium to explore how healthcare managers can make better use of information. We have confirmed presentations from Professor Sir Brian Jarman, Professor Terry Young, Dr James Mountford and other high profile thinkers and leaders from industry and the NHS as well as leading academics in informatics and related fields.

The audience will contain managers, including clinical leaders, from across the NHS. The day will provide an opportunity to explore techniques and approaches to understanding and analysing information, to understand where specialist skills and training are required and to discuss what managers need to know in order to really understand what information means.

The day will be entertaining and instructive and is part of an on-going project at UCL to connect the work of Health Informatics specialists with the needs of NHS leaders and decision-makers.

To register for the event go to http://informationinhealthcare.eventbrite.com.  Places are limited and will be made available at £50 each on a first come, first served basis.
