NIHR Devices for Dignity Med Tech Cooperative (D4D) is working in partnership with the Yorkshire & Humber AHSN to host a workshop to identify potential technology solutions that address unmet needs for people living with long term neurological conditions
One of D4D’s research aims is to deliver health and quality of life benefits for many of the 10 million people in the UK living with Long Term Neurological Conditions, by supporting people to live well, and maximise their function, independence and ability to self-manage, through the collaborative development, and/or re-purposing, of technology.
Attendance is invited from academics, health care professionals, engineers, patients, carers and anyone with an interest in or knowledge of long-term neurological conditions.
The objectives for the workshop are:
- Identify clinical and academic skills
- Develop novel research ideas
- Link our emerging ideas and research activities to funding calls
- Map out research activities to existing funding streams
- Plan next steps
Attendees will be encouraged to form multi-disciplinary collaborations and project teams during the workshop, with the aim for project ideas generated during the workshop to be taken forward after the event.
We’d like attendees to help define the areas of focus for this unmet needs workshop by providing information in the extended questions below when registering to attend. We’d like this information before Friday 25th January 2019. The more information you give us, the better we can meet your needs on the day. The day will then be driven through teamwork around potential unmet needs, with valuable outcomes around next steps, including opportunities for funding.
This is a great opportunity to work directly with D4D and our national network of partners in the development of technology based projects to assist the millions of people living with complex neurological conditions.
Places are limited and prior registration is essential. Lunch will be provided – please provide further details when you register if you have specific dietary requirements.
