Sharing Experiences of Health and 3rd Sector Operational Research
A joint Health/Third Sector Special Interest Group OR Society meeting
Date/Time: Monday, 2 June 2014 from 13:30 to 18:00
Venue: The Pavilion, University of Westminster, 115 New Cavendish St, London, London, W1W 6UW.
Charities and social enterprises are involved in a wide range of health service provision, and their role, in the UK at least, is arguably growing to fill gaps left by statutory cutbacks. Operational Research (OR) has been successfully used in many ways to design and improve health service provision. But OR has historically been less visible in the third sector than in the state and private sectors.
This event brings together speakers with experience of health, the third sector and OR to shed light on what is happening in these areas and how the different groups can build on this for the future.
Confirmed keynote speakers include:
Nigel Edwards, Chief Executive, Nuffield Trust: Current issues in Healthcare policy and management - Opportunities for OR and the 3rd sector.
Jeremie Gallien, Associate Professor of Management Science and Operations, London Business School: Using OR to improve health delivery systems in sub-Saharan Africa.
Other speakers include:
Linda Henry, Unique Improvements Ltd: View from the bridge: third sector consultancy for public sector change.
