Leadership for Public Health Research, Innovation and Applied Evidence Commission – Stakeholder Engagement Events

Date: 21/08/2018 to 24/10/2018 Venue: The Studio, Glasgow (21 August 2018) & Station Hotel, Perth (24 October 2018)

Scottish Public Health Network (ScotPHN) Stakeholder Engagement Events
21 August 2018 (The Studio, Glasgow) and 24 October 2018 (Station Hotel, Perth)

The ScotPHN has been commissioned by the Public Health Reform Programme Board to oversee and deliver the LPHRIAE Commission. Find out more about the Commission in their Briefing Note and Terms of Reference.

Its purpose is:

“to coordinate work to plan for a public health research, innovation and applied evidence function at national level within the new public health body; and in turn, describe how this will support and enable activities at the regional and local level across the wider Scottish public health system and engagement with the UK research funding and public health research landscape.”

A Short Life Working Group, formed of key constituencies (membership in attached Terms of Reference) and independently chaired by David Hunter (University of Newcastle), has been established to assist ScotPHN in the delivery of this Commission and undertake the developmental work to facilitate stakeholder discussion.  The Commission is required to engage widely with all stakeholders in the development of recommendations to the Programme Board on the future research, innovation and applied evidence functions within the new Public Health Scotland.  This will be achieved through two ‘consecutive’ events.  At the August event, stakeholders will seek to understand the current landscape by way of forming a ‘baseline’, discuss the current and potential issues facing these functions and identify questions and challenges for the SLGW in support of the development of the draft options to the Public Health Reform Programme Board.  The draft options and their implementation will be the focus of the second event in October.

Who should attend? 

Researchers, users of research and those involved in developing new ways of working and supporting knowledge into action.  All those who feel they have something to contribute to this Commission.  Attendance at both events would be preferred but is not essential.  

The programme for the events will follow in due course, but if you would like to register for these events, please access the Eventbrite registration.
