Digital Technologies in Primary Care

7th October networking event in London - free places

Hello and welcome to the Digital Technologies in Primary Care SIG.

The aim of this SIG is to build a network of researchers interested in digital technologies use for healthcare delivery. This SIG is convened by Helen Atherton, University of Warwick, in conjunction with Prof Brian McKinstry, University of Edinburgh. 

I hope this group will provide a networking opportunity for researchers from multidisciplinary backgrounds, who are interested in or working in digital technologies in healthcare delivery, providing a forum for discussion about the issues associated with research in this area, including the challenges.

It will provide a central point of contact for researchers in academic primary care looking to find expertise in the application of digital technologies in primary care.

The second SIG meeting will be held at the 2019 Society for Academic Primary Care Annual Scientific Meeting in Exeter, please see conference pages. This will be followed by another event in October which will include opportunities to network with key stakeholders in digital primary care. 

We have a quarterly newsletter which is an opportunity for members to share successes and reach other members of the group. 

If you are interested in joining the group and receiving our newsletter, please get in touch.
