The theme for this year’s programme is the clinical value and utility of data for clinicians and how data plays a key part in our day to day clinical practice.  To be more specific, how data is an integral part of 21st century healthcare and has a key and fundamental relationship with all aspects of our clinical practice.
As part of the programme, we will be having sessions on the relationships between data and our clinical practice i.e. 
  • data and health Inequalities 
  • Data and Patient safety, 
  • Data and Training/Education
  • Data and Improving patient care 
  • Data and Digital Technologies
As in previous years, the core principles behind the series of Better Data, Better Care Conferences and continuing for this year’s programme will be: 
  •  ICES – increasing clinician efficiency and patient safety   
  • IPOE – improving patient outcomes and experience
  • EDMH – enabling digital mental health services for patients
  • Digital Literacy Framework

The call for posters has now closed. we are unable to accept late submission.
