Nuffield Trust håller seminarum om Vinnvård-projekt

Nuffield Trust håller seminariet "Sharing international experinece: Sweden. Seminariet handlar om Staffan Lindblads Vinnvård-projekt, patientens innovationssystem.

Det hela hade sin upprinnelse när Jennifer Dixon, Director Nuffield Trust, besökte Forum för Health Policy i December. Det finns ett stort intresse, nationellt sett för "innovationer" av detta slag som vi har i Sverige,  "innovationer" som ligger i skärningsfältet medicin/kvalitet/organisation.

Sharing international experience:
Linking disease registry information and predictive modelling to improve quality and efficiency in Sweden


Dear colleague,


Book your place: Sharing international experience, Sweden


11 September 2012, 2.00pm-5.00pm (Registration and lunch 1.30pm), Nuffield Trust, 59 New Cavendish Street, London.

This international seminar will explore pioneering work in Sweden using disease/quality registers.

A database that includes the details of the majority of patients with rheumatological disease in Sweden has been developed by Prof Staffan Lindblad with colleagues. This database is in part updated by patients online, for example in recording health status particularly after changing treatment regimens.

The data is combined with predictive modelling techniques to ascertain the best possible treatment combination for individuals with rheumatological disease. Prof Lindblad is a recognised innovator in Sweden and has produced some remarkable results for patients.

This approach could be useful to develop in England. With the availability of routinely collected person-level data on encounters with the NHS, there is potential to take Dr Lindblad’s work a step further to link information on treatment combinations with use of care and cost.

At the seminar you will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand how pioneering work in Sweden could be developed in the UK using disease registry data and online interaction with patients;
  • Understand how disease registry data could be linked to other types of data;
  • Develop ideas on how predictive risk modelling might be used to predict outcomes for patients and identify the best options for treatment.

We are delighted to welcome speakers including:

  • Prof Staffan Lindblad, Director of the Health Information Centre, The Karolinska Institute, on his pioneering work in Sweden;
  • Dr Sofia Ernestam, Department of Rheumatology, Karolinska University Hospital will share experiences from Sweden;
  • Dr Ian Rowe, Chair of BSR Clinical Affairs Committee, British Society for Rheumatology on developing a rheumatology register;
  • Dr Martin Bardsley, Head of Research, Nuffield Trust will share innovative approaches to predictive risk modelling using routinely collected (mainly encounter) data.

The event will be chaired Prof Nick Black, Professor of Health Services Research, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

For further information on our work on predictive risk please visit our website.

We very much hope you can attend. Please confirm your attendance as soon as possible via our online booking system or for more information, please visit our dedicated event page.


With best wishes


Dr Jennifer Dixon
