Event wrap and photo gallery: 12 September 2016.
More than 160 people attended this year’s 45 and Up Study Collaborators’ Meeting, held Tuesday 6 September. The theme was Data, evidence and decision making: innovation for a better future.
Dr Diane Watson, health performance reporting expert and former chief executive of the National Health Performance Authority, delivered a keynote address exploring how to ensure research evidence is “useful” — that it gets to the right person at the right time to make a difference.
Other plenary presentations included a study using spatial analysis to investigate the link between walkability and physical activity levels; a case study demonstrating how the 45 and Up Study can be used to inform local health services planning; and research that demonstrated the potential savings to government of addressing lifestyle-related factors for chronic disease.
