Updated: Nov 5, 2019

Best practice in personalised health workshop

The second SAPHIRe Workshop will take place on 17-18 October 2019 in Riddel Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland. The workshop will bring together some of the leading figures in personalised health from across Europe. We have policy experts, as well as leading figures from government, the academic arena and the healthcare setting. It will be a chance to exchange experiences, to provide a forum for discussion of best practices, lessons learned, and to identify and assess approaches to improve implementation of personalised health.

We have 10 regions attending the workshop and 18 expert speakers, with presentations ranging from precision oncology to digital health initiatives.

We will have key note addresses from Professor Tony Bjourson, Director of the Northern Ireland Centre for Stratified Medicine at Ulster University and Dr Michael McBride, Chief Medical Officer for the Department of Health in Northern Ireland.

The two day workshop will be an invaluable opportunity for attendees to showcase the work that is ongoing in their regions and it will provide a platform to facilitate the sharing of ideas and experiences between regions. The workshop will be an opportunity for interactive discussion, a chance to build new alliances, fresh collaborations and networks, to take home new ideas, to ask questions to leading experts in the field of policy, academia and healthcare.

Check back on our website soon as we will upload all the presentations from the event. The full programme and abstracts are available here
