Event description
Join our monthly Q&A to speak to and learn from experts in the field of infectious disease surveillance, testing, treatment and beyond!

About this Event

This i-sense virtual Q&A series highlights topics related to infectious disease outbreaks preparedness and response – focusing on what we have learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic, what we need to do to ensure we are ready to respond to the next infectious disease outbreak, and how we can better protect our population and healthcare systems now and in the future.

Each month we will explore different themes related to developing tools and technologies to track, test and treat infectious diseases. As preparing for and responding to an outbreak is a collaborative effort, we’ll gain perspective from experts in academia, government and policy, healthcare, and industry.

This month we will be exploring the topic 'Patient pathways - remote consulting, healthcare apps, and the future of track and trace.'

Our panel members

Prof Claudia Estcourt

Professor of Sexual Health & HIV at Glasgow Caledonian University, Honorary Professor at University College London and a consultant physician in Glasgow, UK

Prof Estcourt's research addresses three major public health priorities: 1). Self-managed, digital healthcare, focussing on development and evaluation of complex online clinical care pathways within sexual health & HIV medicine (SEQUENCEdigital & The ePrEP Clinic ), 2). Preventing transmission of STIs and reducing undiagnosed HIV by increasing effectiveness of partner notification strategies by developing tailored interventions for those at highest risk (lustrum.org.uk), 3) HIV PrEP public health programmes, implementation, clinical service development, evaluation and monitoring. As part of i-sense (https://www.i-sense.org.uk/), her team is looking at online care pathways to link people using HIV home testing into NHS clinical care and prevention interventions, and application of near patient infectious disease diagnostics and online clinical care delivery in African community settings via the MRC Global Challenges funded m-Africa project.
