About this event

We are delighted to announce our next Annual Healthcare Lecture will be taking place 31 October 2018. Come along and listen to our 2018 IET Healthcare Award winners and our keynote speaker, Dr Peter Young who will talk about “Engineering safety into medicine”.

Before the keynote talk, the winners of the IET Healthcare Technologies Student and Early Career Awards (Dennis Hill Award, William James Award, and J.A. Lodge Award) will present their groundbreaking work.

Keynote talk overview:

Engineering safety into medicine:

Innovation and engineering solutions to improve everyday patient safety allows for a culmination of marginal gains allowing for considerable outcome improvements. This requires an understanding and a regular working presence in the relevant clinical setting, an environment to encourage and facilitate innovation, a supportive culture that allows risk management rather than just risk aversion, an understanding of intellectual property and development pathways, and most importantly an implementation friendly culture at all levels of healthcare. The average time for implementation in healthcare is often quoted at 17 years – the NHS has responded with the Health Innovation Agencies, the Academic Health Science Networks, the Clinical Entrepreneur programme, the Accelerated Access Review, the NHS Innovation Accelerator programme and Innovation and Technology Tariffs to help address and influence cultural change and provide our patients with new technologies and ways of working in a more timely way.

Our speakers:

Dr Peter Young MD, FRCA, MB ChB

Keynote talk: “Engineering safety into medicine”

Peter Young is a consultant in Critical Care at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn. Peter's research interests include using human factors principles to prevent patient harm, by engineering fail safes through the development of medical safety innovations to prevent serious adverse and never events. Peter is a fellow NHS Innovation Accelerator Programme and contributes to the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme and has recently been elected to the council of the Association of Anaethetists of Great Britain and Ireland.

Winner of the William James Award 2018: Rossana Castaldo

Topic: "Wearable technology and ECG for fall prevention, detection and prediction"

Rossana received her PhD in biomedical engineering at University of Warwick, UK, in 2018. Her PhD was focused on the translation of advanced methodologies and techniques from laboratories into real-life settings for prediction of adverse healthcare events. Rossana also received the M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering at University of Warwick in 2014.

She is currently Research Associate at University of Warwick, where she has been an associate of the Applied Biomedical Signal Processing and Intelligent eHealth Lab since 2013. Her main areas of expertise are biomedical signal processing, machine learning and data analytics. She has authored or co-authored about 18 journal, book and conference papers. Rossana is member of the Italian Scientific society on Medical and Biomedical Engineering and member of the International Women Committee of the International Federation of Medical and Biomedical Engineering (IFMBE).

Winner of the Dennis Hill Award 2018: Jennifer Bishop

Topic: "Managing the health of the hospital-data-driven approaches for intelligent discharge prediction via machine learning"

Originally from Stockport, Jennifer studied her GCSE’s at a local comprehensive school and her A-levels at Loreto Sixth Form College in Manchester. She then went on to study Engineering Science for four years at St Peter’s College, Oxford University, from which she recently graduated with a first class MEng degree. Throughout this degree she was awarded the Diamond Jubilee Scholarship by the IET, for which she is extremely grateful. In the third and fourth years of Jennifer’s degree she chose to focus her studies on biomedical and information engineering modules. Her interest in these fields developed as a result of her spending the summer of the second year as an intern at a company called Oxehealth, which specializes in measuring vital signs information using video data. This resulted in Jennifer choosing to do a masters project with Professor David Clifton and his research group in the field of healthcare informatics.

Winner of the J A Lodge Award 2018: Shima Ghasemi

Topic: "A portable prototype magnetometer to differentiate ischemic and non-ischemic heart disease in patients with chest pain."

Currently, at CREAVO Medical Technologies, Shima is the lead research and project scientist for medical diagnostic technologies and is a member of IET.  She has experience of both supporting medical device development through the product life cycle, while also working on research which forms the long term strategic vision of the company. She oversees the algorithm and sensor system requirements including verification and validation for a team of five engineers.  In 2017, Shima was part of CREAVO Medical Technologies team which received the IET innovation awards for Healthcare and Emerging Technology Design categories.

At CREAVO she had opportunities to support, set and conduct clinical studies to assist in the testing and evaluation of the CREAVO’s medical device in hospital Emergency Departments. This includes writing medical study protocols, training clinical staff, recruiting patients, collecting patient scans in hospitals and carrying out the post-trial analysis.

Shima has a BSc degree in Applied Physics (Iran), MSc in Quantum Technologies and obtained a PhD in Medical Physics (UK, Leeds University—Experimental Quantum Information Group). Her PhD work and clinical research in Medical Physics- Magnetocardiography formed part of the technology transfer from Leeds University to CREAVO.
