Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

Description

As a result of the continuing advances in healthcare technology it is predicted that medical practice will be changed beyond all recognition over the next decade. This is evident from the recent breakthroughs in the technology used for in vitro and physical testing, handling ‘Big Data’ and precision-guided therapy, which have all had a significant impact in the healthcare field. However, to better inform doctors it is forecast that the next generation of machines will include self-learning predictive software able to combine information from molecular genetics, biosignals, wearable and implanted devices, and multi-modality imaging. This will significantly change clinical practice in many areas.

This seminar will explore just how far the technology has already developed, and what the latest predictions are by those working in the field of how medicine will really be practised in ten years’ time. Presentations at this event will be delivered by leading experts on a wide range of topics that will contribute to the future of how medicine will be practised. It will indeed be a fascinating day and will be relevant to doctors, physical scientists and engineers, NHS clinical scientists, and the healthcare and bioscience industries.
