Workshop

Health and Care Research Wales – Excellence in Research Delivery

Describing clinical research as the UK ‘lifeline’ during the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK strategy Saving and Improving Lives: The Future of UK Clinical Research Delivery (DHSC, 2021) addresses a vision to underpin UK research delivery in order to secure patient centred research at the heart of services; sustain efficiency and speed and develop resilience in a research delivery service. Never have we been so aware of the value and importance of research into new medicines, treatments and care. This session looks at how a One Wales approach to research delivery has allowed sponsors, researchers, NHS staff and patients to collaborate in order to achieve research excellence with tangible patient benefit throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The delivery model has since been adapted and applied beyond the pandemic context, for example in cancer diagnostics and it continues to provide an ambitious blueprint for research delivery that meets the UK vision and reaches patients and participants throughout Wales.

Life Sciences Hub Wales: Cancer Diagnostics in Wales – Future visions!

The earlier the stage at which a cancer is diagnosed, the better outcomes are for the patient, for their loved ones and carers, and for health services and the economy. However, 50% of cancers are at an advanced stage when diagnosed and our health system faces the challenge of a huge backlog of need resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Better early detection and diagnosis of cancers, powered by innovative technology and practice, could represent one of the best ways to bounce back, recover, and serve patients into the future. Join us as our guest speakers share their insights into current innovations for early diagnosis cancer pathway.
