IHDP Director Prof Aileen Keel will be speaking about the Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme at the University of Aberdeen.
1 in 2 people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. Understanding more about what happens when people are diagnosed and treated for cancer is now more important than ever.
When a person is diagnosed with cancer, their journey through the NHS leaves a trail of data, from diagnosis to treatment to recovery, providing a potentially rich and currently under-used information resource.
This is why the Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme (IHDP) is working with the NHS, industry, academia and the third sector to develop a cancer ‘intelligence framework’ for Scotland. This will improve the ways that data is recorded, analysed and used, leading both to better healthcare systems and patient outcomes.
Grand Rounds is for everyone – all University staff, NHS staff, students are particularly welcomed and the public. The aim is to provide a wide range of interesting, entertaining talks through the year given by local and invited experts.
