Wales Population Health Conference
Wed 20th Nov 2019
Supporting the Future Generations Wales Act: ‘Systems, structures and behaviours that benefit the future health of Wales'.
How can Health and Social Care invest in the things that work (interventions, programmes) and dis-invest in those that don’t? How can Population Health research help inform these decisions and the future direction for health and social care in Wales?
The Conference looks to tackle these questions and to demonstrate the breadth of research being carried out across Wales that explores and tackles some of today’s most difficult health and social challenges.
Presentations throughout the day will share new insights that are providing a robust evidence base to inform policy, practice and provision across Wales.
