Men’s Health and Technology Symposium

The Men’s Health Forum and 2020health is holding a Men’s health and technology expert symposium this Tuesday 27th March

There may be a few places available for this event which will take place from 10am-4pm on Victoria Street in Westminster.

The Men’s health and technology expert symposium will share examples of practice and examine next steps in developing strategies to increase men’s use of digital technologies to improve their health and for health providers to use health technologies to engage with men.

Men are less likely to access traditional health services such as GPs and pharmacies but there are opportunities to engage them in health using these technologies.

Speakers include Dr Charles Gutteridge, the government’s National Clinical Director for Informatics and Professor Alan White of Leeds Met University’s centre for men’s health.

Sessions will include:

• Informed review of the current agenda and policies.
• Case studies and examples of successful online engagement with men.
• Expert views on the future use of technologies and some of the challenges to implementation.
• Developing recommended actions for policy and practice.

The symposium will give you the opportunity to:

• Consider examples of good practice in engaging men in digital health technologies.
• Review your own strategy and practice to improve your delivery.
• Discuss and make recommendations on how policy, practice and research can be developed in the field.

Places are limited (and may be all gone) but if you want to try and book a place online click here now.
