Imperial College London and the NHS Confederation would like to invite you to take part in an exclusive event that on previous occasions has been closed to members of the public – an opportunity to learn about and debate the most effective ways of adopting new technologies and innovative services and overcoming barriers and challenges arising in the process.
The Embracing Healthcare Technology and Innovation Conference has been organized by the SDO Network and the NHS Technology Adoption Centre and will be broadcast to you live in SL directly from BMA House in London on Wednesday 11th February starting at 10.00 GMT – 2.00 SLT (arrive at 09.30 GMT for a video check).
There will be keynote speakers who will share evidence based management practice from real world experiences and the latest research knowledge in this area as well as break-out groups for discussion and feedback.
Your questions will be posed to the speakers and panels in BMA House, and you are also invited to attend a break-out group in Second Life that will feed back into the RL conference.
