The morning will be an interactive session to explore potential barriers to implementation of public health interventions as they are exposed to the political-economic realities of practice and policy and how they may be overcome. Chaired by Professor Martin Roland, co-Director of the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research, the session will see early and mid-career researchers pitching their research and potential public health related interventions leading from it to a panel of policy experts. The panel will then respond highlighting the barriers there could be to such interventions with discussion on how we might move forward, providing expert feedback from the policy perspective on future development of the research.

Abstract submission is now open if you would like the opportunity to pitch your recent research findings which you think could or should be put into practice and get feedback from our panel. Presentations will be no more than five minutes with 10 minutes discussion for each. Further details and the abstract submission form are here. Abstracts can also be submitted if you would like to present a poster of your research.
