This June 8th, at 09.00-13.00 CET / 14.00-18.00 Jakarta time we will be hosting the final symposium for the Health-Indonesia project. If you’re interested in joining us for this event, please make sure to register here. You can also find the program here.
The symposium will feature state-of-the-art lectures given by our partner universities on research for health improvement. The topics of the lectures will reflect the topics of methodological training applied during the Health-I project.
The event will be split into two sessions, each exploring an interesting methodological topic within health research. The first session will be moderated by dr. Panji Fortuna Hadisoemarto, MPH, PhD from Universitas Padjadjaran, and will feature speakers from University Medical Center Utrecht, Dr. Thomas P. A. Debray, PhD [“Introduction of Systematic Reviews of Prognosis Studies”] and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Prof. dr. Xavier Bonfill Cosp, PhD. [“Appropriateness of Healthcare Interventions]. The second session will be moderated by dr. Firdaus Hamid, Ph.D from Universitas Hasanuddin, featuring speakers Prof. Paul Taylor, PhD from University College London [“Big Data in Healthcare”] and dr. Kuntjoro Harimurti, MSc, PhD from Universitas Indonesia [“Clinical Practice Guideline Development].
A bit more on the program itself:
The Health-I program is an EU Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education grant and has run since October 2017. The HEALTH-I project aimed to strengthen the capacity in the fields of clinical epidemiology and big data in Indonesia. The project consisted of online and face-to-face teaching, establishing the infrastructure of online education development in Indonesia, and ultimately strengthening Indonesia’s capacity to conduct research to inform health care decision making in the country. Given the rising burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and respiratory diseases in Indonesia, emphasis has been placed on these topics.
The consortium consists of four Indonesian universities: Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Gadjah Mada, University of Hasanuddin and Padjadjaran University and four European partners; University College London, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Elevate Health and University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands.
