WISH presents global research at Manila forum
DOHA, August 31, 2015
The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), an initiative of Qatar Foundation, presented its Global Diffusion of Healthcare Innovation (GDHI) research to leading healthcare entities at a recent research forum in Manila, Philippines.
The Global Forum 2015 on Research and Innovation for Health brought together high-level representatives from government, business, academic and research institutions, and social entrepreneurs.
During the conference, Dr Oliver Keown, clinical advisor and policy fellow at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Imperial College London and private secretary to Professor the Lord Darzi of Denham, executive chair of WISH, presented WISH’s GDHI research in a session titled: “From evidence to policy - thinking outside the box” to highlight the need for innovation and research to improve economies and population health.
“Our Global Diffusion of Healthcare Innovation study has delivered invaluable insight to the behaviours and practices within healthcare organisations which support the spread of innovation and best practice,” Dr Keown said.
“WISH has been a tremendously powerful platform for learning from international stakeholders as well as broadcasting this evidence-based policy to a global audience. We are delighted to have shared our research with global healthcare leaders at Forum 2015, and hope that our findings inspire them to translate successful practices in their own systems,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
