The College of Social Sciences at the University of Birmingham is hosting its inaugural lecture with  Judith Smith, Professor of Health Policy and Management and Director of the Health Services Management Centre on Tuesday 3 May at 17:00. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception and canapes. 


In this lecture, Professor Smith will use research evidence to examine what she argues to be the relatively separate and insular worlds of healthcare management and research, identifying their distinctive professional and cultural features. She will use this analysis to explore the ways in which healthcare management and research can be drawn more closely together to mutual benefit, using examples from emerging UK and international evidence and best practice, and from her own experience of working in healthcare management, policy and research.
