About this event

  • Date and time Mon 10 Jun 2019 from 8:30am to 6:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health

Building on from the Child Health Festival of 2018, we understand that care for children and young people needs to be more population based, with a clearer focus on the social determinants and delivered in an integrated way. But what does this look like in reality?

Child Health Festival 2 takes us to the next level of re-imagining child health, working out what the future looks like in reality by focusing on how to innovate children's services through practice, improvement and advocacy

Through a series of expert-led, cased-based talks and workshops delegates will work in interdisciplinary groups to not only learn, but also help flesh out the essential, but all too often poorly understood, skills required to help improve services for children.  

Join us to learn: 

  • How to bring the social determinants to the centre of service provision
  • How to prove that what they are doing is working
  • About how services are financed and provided locally
  • About the position of paediatrics within the health system and how they can raise its profile
  • How to develop a plan to integrate care in their area
  • How to work across disciplinary and sectoral boundaries for patient-centred care
  • How to raise the profile and impact of local QI projects

Speaker's biography

Doctor Gottlieb is a former National Health Services Scholar and safety-net family physician with fellowship training in social determinants of health. 

 

She now serves as Principal Investigator on multiple quantitative and qualitative projects examining the integration of social and medical care services. These projects range from large randomised trials on specific interventions undertaken in clinical settings to projects that explore the scope of this rapidly evolving field, including by characterising the payment, technology, and workforce foundation for care integration.

 

Doctor Gottlieb is the Founding Director of the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network (SIREN), a national research acceleration and translation institute supported by Kaiser Permanente and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that brings together researchers across the U.S. to synthesize, disseminate, and catalyze research at the intersection of social and medical care.
