Bristol Health Partners launched at TEDMEDLive

Bristol Health Partners had its official launch this month with an event streamed live on the web from Bristol's M Shed in conjunction with the prestigious international TEDMED research and innovation conference.

TEDMEDLive Bristol saw 29 experts exchanging ideas in a dynamic, quick-fire format with talks limited to just 10 minutes including questions.

Topics ranged from how quantum computing and robotics could revolutionise medicine to the importance of challenging the 'beauty myth' and how animation can help deliver public health messages.

AWP older age psychiatrist Sarah Cullum (pictured) took part in the evening 'people's choice' session on 'dementia: does everyone want an early diagnosis?' voted by the people of Bristol as the biggest health challenge facing the city.

The link with TEDMED was a major coup for Bristol Health Partners, which aims to generate significant health gain and improvements in service delivery in Bristol by integrating, promoting and developing Bristol's strengths in health services, research, innovation and education.

The partnership operates through Health Integration Teams (HITs) working innovatively across disciplines and organisations to tackle major health priorities. AWP is centrally involved in several major HITs with a mental health focus including dementia, self harm and developing healthier neighbourhood environments.

Talks from the day are available at via Bristol Health Partners website.
