Interdisciplinary research: What is it? How can we strengthen interdisciplinary research in primary care?

Trish is an internationally recognised academic in primary health care and trained as a GP. She joined the
Department in January 2015 after previously holding professorships at University College London and Queen Mary University
of London. As co-Director of the Interdisciplinary Research In Health Sciences (IRIHS) unit, Trish leads a programme of research
at the interface between social sciences and medicine, with strong emphasis on the organisation and delivery of health
services. Her research seeks to celebrate and retain the traditional and humanistic aspects of medicine while also embracing
the unparalleled opportunities of contemporary science and technology to improve health outcomes and relieve suffering.

Delegates are kindly asked to bring/think of examples of interdisciplinary research for discussion within the session.
