      How much does a nation spend on science? What kind of science? How much from private versus public funding? These are all questions being explored by policymakers around the world as part of the increasing interests in the ‘science of science and innovation policy’. During his recent visit to Australia, Professor Richard Freeman from Harvard University sat down with Professor Paul Jensen from the Melbourne Institute at the University of Melbourne to explore this topic of science and innovation policy. Professor Freeman is the Herbert Ascherman Chair of Economics at Harvard, an expert in science policy and is considered one of the most important social scientists in the post-war period.

                Event Date: Jul 25, 2013 | 12:00PM - 1:00PM EDT Presented by: Dr. Tyler Williamson is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Family Medicine and Public Health Sciences at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON and the Senior Epidemiologist for the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN). Hosted by: CDRAKE Dr. Tyler Williamson explains the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN) and how CPCSSN is contributing to the National Population Health Study on Neurological Conditions (NPHSNC). CPCSSN is Canada’s first national chronic disease surveillance system built on electronic medical record (EMR) data. Through the process of this portion of the study, the CPCSSN study team has been able to develop disease case definitions for three chronic neurological conditions (dementia, epilepsy, and parkinsonism). These case definitions allow the CPCSSN team to study the prevalence of these three conditions in primary care setting but also permit ongoing surveillance and research into these conditions. The National Population Health Study of Neurological Conditions is a five-year study (2009-2014) that is expected to provide data on the scope, risk of onset and prognostic factors, health service utilization and the current and projected impact of neurological conditions over the next five, 10 and 20 years. In collaboration with Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC) and the Public Health Agency of Canada, this national Study is aimed at filling in gaps in knowledge about the state of neurological conditions in Canada. This multifaceted project consists of three national surveys, thirteen Pan Canadian peer-reviewed research studies and a micro-simulation project before concluding with a Synthesis Process.

                    • Culture, Health & Wellbeing


                      from omphalos / Added

                      This short film is simply the amateur take of the filmmaker 'Omphalos' after attending the opening day of the conference: Culture, Health & Wellbeing in Bristol on Monday 24th June 2013. http://www.culturehealthwellbeing.org.uk/index.aspx This was quite simply the best conference day I have been to in my 20 year career as an NHS Consultant. I say this as an evidence-based doctor. John Wyn Owen, Learned Society of Wales said before the conference: “Unequivocally the arts and health are a way to health gain and wellbeing. Further it's timely that the Conference reviews progress and futures of the 1998 Nuffield Trust's Declaration of Windsor on the arts, health and wellbeing: beyond the millennium.” I was most impressed with the keynote address given by John Wyn Owen. I have not heard a better or more impassioned overview for the argument that health science cannot simply divide itself from arts and humanities and real life! I was equally impressed by the Chair, Professor Richard Parish, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Public Health. As a Chair he was so wonderfully knowledgeable, hugely engaging, and to me, carried compassion with the sort of worldly intelligence (that I sometimes wonder) only public health fully 'gets'? David Leventhal and 'Dance for Parkinsons' was inspiring and captured so much of what far too many of the medical 'imperatives' of today do not. Despite the talk of 'personhood' in healthcare, it would seem to me that targets and what have been termed 'single-issue fanatics' have dominated policy. Have we collectively lost our nerve for what is important: 'natural sciences' that include evidence, interactions, ethics and real-world understandings? I have long implored medicine to embrace, far more fully, both public health and the medical humanities. This conference and the wonderful contributors reinforce my determination. My experience in the NHS, and I speak of recent years, is that there remains a great divide between medical humanities and scientific biologism. There are of course many reasons for such. My medical colleagues often say to me when I share details of conferences such as this - I do not have time to read or look at this on my NHS-mail, why not set up a Facebook page?. . . the implication to me (and apologies to all if I am wrong) is that conferences such as this: on medical humanities, cultural determinants, public health, arts, anthropology are of lesser importance to healthcare. I am certain this is misguided. I also think we need to encourage what is termed "healthy skepticism" in medicine. All interventions have potential for good and bad. All interventions need to be seen in the round and evaluated through evidence, ethics and also most crucially through engagement with those with whom the interventions may involve. Anyway, that is my few thoughts. I have made this film to thank the organisers of this tremendously well put-together course that abounded with inspirational people, thoughts, ideas and a collective determination to improve, health and wellbeing. My only sadness was (going by the attendee list) that there seemed (apart from the super GP's I met at lunch) less proportionate healthcare professional attendence. I will do my best to encourage otherwise for the next conference! The background music tracks are by Dexter Britain under common licence and can be shared without copyright.
