June 6th was the third CLAHRC Oxford Stakeholder Symposium.

The symposium was a chance to bring together the many and varied people involved in the CLAHRC, our stakeholders, from directors of local health institutions to individual researchers and patients and the public.

This year, we tried something a little different. Rather than a presentation of the results and findings from studies we wanted to focus a bit more on the impacts that CLAHRC projects are having in the real world – the difference these projects are making to real people.

We also ensured that at least 10% of attendees were PPI contributors, meaning that presenters were also tasked with the additional tricky goal of trying to keep their presentations in as plain English as possible! We think they did a great job.

Following an introduction by our director, Professor Richard Hobbs, the day started with an excellent presentation by Professor Sue Dopson, of the Saïd Business School, leading onto presentations from members of each CLAHRC Theme.SS17CLAHRC_S-6787.jpg

We also threw open the floor to questions for each of the presentations, giving each session a good degree of participation.  

The afternoon saw three different workshops, developed with our partners: Integrated care, the Oxford Recovery College, and Training and support across the Thames Valley.

We’d like to thank the people from the Integrated Care Foundation, Oxford NHS Foundation Trust's Recovery College programme and Health Education England, Thames Valley for their work developing the workshops.

A more in depth write up, detailing each of the presentations and workshops, as well as presenters slides will be online soon on the blog.

The programme can be downloaded here.
