Delve into case studies that reveal the collaboration between different data platform and research initiatives and the NHS. An insightful snapshot of current projects, this session will illuminate the diverse ways data is driving progress in healthcare. An essential overview for those keen on the interplay of data and health research in the NHS.

Dr Lauren Walker
Senior Clinical Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics and Internal Medicine, University of Liverpool
Dr Lauren Walker is Clinical Senior Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics and Honorary Consultant in General Internal Medicine. She co-leads the DynAIRx programme, funded by the NIHR AI in multimorbidity stream and her research interest involves utilising existing health record data to understand how multiple long-term conditions, and their associated prescriptions, evolve over time and how these relationships between drugs and diseases lead to harm. She is very interested in predicting risk and examining patient journeys to identify at what point the harm of a medicine outweighs the potential for benefit. She contributes to outpatient clinics, inpatient reviews and multidisciplinary team meetings for adults with complex multimorbidity & polypharmacy.
