The 2nd annual Institute for health research Conference (IHR) conference will showcase the health research undertaken by LJMU researchers and our collaborators.

The conference sessions available throughout the day will present the research undertaken at the LJMU Institute for Health Research in collaboration with our external partners  and stakeholders to better understand and improve the health and wellbeing of people in Liverpool, nationally and internationally.

The conference will include health and health-related research in the broadest sense including a session focusing on Mental Wellbeing with a keynote presentation from Inti Quarashi from Merseycare  and a session on Children’s health, with a keynote from the Liverpool Health Partners Starting Well team.  There will also be 4 parallel breakout sessions focusing on; social prescribing, children centred research methods, co-production and public engagement, and a session in collaboration with the 2019 Year of the Environment on Health and Wellbeing.  There will be a lunchtime poster session and lunch will be provided free of charge to attendees. LJMU staff and postgraduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster and short presentations.

Organised by the Head of the IHR, Professor Gillian Hutcheon and the IHR members, the Interim Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Mark Power will open the event.

The Conference is open to all LJMU staff and students. Additionally, we warmly invite all health care professionals working across the Liverpool City region. There is no charge, although tickets must be booked via Eventbrite. Places are limited and last year we were oversubscribed so if you can no longer join us it is appreciated if you cancel your ticket to allow others to attend.
