DAY 1

Building your case

Translating evidence into practice. Rising costs and limited resources are impacting on the health and well-being of populations. We explore how we can counter these changes through a preventative approach making the case for investment.

 

Lightning Talks & Posters
Join the silent disco to experience oral abstracts in a whole new way. Each presentation will take 5 minutes with a brief Q&A. You’ll be able to listen in to whichever topics interest you during the session.

 

Antimicrobial resistance

In the face of a growing global crisis, this session explores the role of patients and healthcare workers in tackling antimicrobial resistance, emphasising the importance of transforming beliefs and behaviours.

 

Improving air quality and public health in Wales - a game of two halves

This session seeks to generate evidence to inform the public health contribution to achieving clean air in Wales.  We will highlight overlaps between air quality management and wider public health policy and practice, and the benefits of collaborative action.

 

Low Carbon Wales

This hands-on session helps share ideas and solutions towards the achievable goal of reducing Wales’s carbon footprint, supporting the Welsh Government ambition of a carbon neutral public sector by 2030.

Innovation for the nation (TBC)

We often discuss the need for innovation in public health – but what do we really mean by this?  This session challenges delegates to define how we recognise innovation in practice and future planning.

Healthy workplace, healthy people

This session examines what we know about the workplace and its impact on health, and explores how we can work together to create a positive and healthy work environment now and in the future.

 

The patient knows best

Prudent healthcare requires not only the best use of resources, but also consulting patients on their own care pathways. This session discusses empowering patients to make the choices that are right for them, including case studies. (pending)

 

What matters to you?

Looking at self-management and shared decision-making, the session highlights a ‘What matters to you?’ approach to improving health, well-being and patient outcomes. It demonstrates how policy can enable us to develop this way of working to become the norm.

 

Building networks and skills for improvement

This provides a hands-on experience of quality improvement, demonstrating how networks across Wales and beyond can enable transformation of health and care systems in Wales to better meet population need.

Nothing without us

Hear voices from our future generations, with young delegates from local schools holding a lively debate on a topical public health issue.

 

International Health and Global Citizenship - towards a globally responsible, resilient and prosperous NHS in Wales

In an increasingly connected world, local health threats quickly become global, and global emergencies are felt on local levels.  This session explores how we equip healthcare professionals to engage in beneficial international health partnerships.

Insight Not Data

From banking to government, intelligence analysts from across the public and private sectors are using data sets from a whole range of sources to create solutions for health and well-being and to understand human behaviour. So how do you go about turning data into insight?

 

Play

The opportunity to play is fundamental to a child’s development and their longer term mental and physical health and wellbeing.  Experiences of children in Wales today are very different than those of their parents and grandparents.  They are less likely to have the opportunity for independent outdoor play.  Perceptions of risk of harm and safety have changed; but in our efforts to protect children we may inadvertently be exposing them to greater longer term problems.
