20 June 2018 - Innovation & Revolution in Medicine
Interim Partners Healthcare Practice is hosting a breakfast seminar on 20th June 2018.
Chris Gibson MBE will discuss the digital revolution in medicine, drawing on his experience within military medicine. Chris will speak about:
- the contemporary revolution in military medicine
- why Defence medicine has become an exemplar of early innovation adoption and has created the conditions for translating innovation to the wider healthcare sector
- how 'adoption' and 'translation' fit into an integrated model of innovation and how this can benefit wider healthcare provision
If you're a Private Care professional, this session will enable you to understand how “hands on” experience in the field can be replicated into new ways of working within the health landscape, supported by newly specially designed technology.
