Next Lecture

Professor Dame Sue Bailey, OBE, DBE: Back to the future - on the road less travelled.

Date: Wednesday 21 March 2018 – 6.00pm -  7.00pm

Where: Riddel Hall, Stranmillis, Belfast.

Lecture synopsis:

We all know that where we live will impact radically on the quality of our lives. Across the world the challenge of achieving values and evidenced based, affordable, sustainable health care for all, has become so overwhelming we increasingly risk becoming crisis junkies.

Are we currently condemning prevention and sustainability to the too difficult to do box? How do we deal with diverse views as to whether increased utilisation of Artificial Intelligence in health care will make all things possible, threaten the livelihoods, remove all semblance of citizen confidentiality and rights or deliver the data patterns, that can advance the science of medicine and improve patient outcomes?
