FREED at 10 - Towards the Next Decades of Early Intervention for Eating Disorders

FREED at 10 - Towards the Next Decades of Early Intervention for Eating Disorders

Description

Ten years ago, we started FREED (First episode rapid early intervention for eating disorders) as a small pilot project. It is now the leading evidence-based service model and care pathway for early intervention in eating disorders. It is fully embedded in services across England and has inspired development of similar models internationally.  Join us to celebrate FREED’s first decade. Learn about how we are working with our partners to shape the future of high-quality authentic prevention and early intervention for eating disorders to revolutionise care for patients and families. Help us make early intervention for eating disorders a world-wide movement. 

The event will feature keynote lectures and talks from international experts on youth mental health and early intervention, members of CREW, national FREED team and the EDIFY consortium on scientific advances, impacts and ongoing work and opportunities for networking, discussion and debate.

Student Mental Health Conference 2024

Student Mental Health Conference 2024

Description

This is an informal and friendly conference, designed to bring practitioners and researchers together to talk about student mental health. The conference will create opportunities to present lessons learned from practice and research findings. We will also be carving out plenty of time to talk about plans and ideas, as well as challenges, arising in practice and research. We hope this is an opportunity to learn and to connect.

The three-day conference will focus on creating space for discussion, we have intentionally chosen a venue that gives us multiple smaller rooms, rather than a large lecture theatre. If you are hoping to sit at the back of a lecture hall and be talked at for a few days, I’m sorry, this event is not for you.

It is for you, if you’d like to talk in smaller groups with individuals who are enthusiastic and passionate about student mental health. It is for you if you’d like to connect and collaborate with others working in this world.

We will be running a programme of activities alongside the talks, to give space to be creative, to re-energise and to have structured time to get to know new people.

The conference will be catered, including tea, coffee and lunch every day. There will be a conference dinner on the first evening (10th of June). We have included this in the conference price, as we hope as many people as possible will join us.

The conference schedule is yet to be confirmed, but we expect to do something like:

10th – Midday to 5.30pm (or to 10pm including additional activities and dinner).

11th – 9am – 5.30pm

12th – 9.30am – 3.00pm

BHI Executive Education Programme: Causal Modelling and Evaluation 2024

Description

Course Aim: 
Much of applied health and social research is aimed at estimating causal effects of risk factors or interventions (treatments, programmes, policies etc.). This includes assessments carried out by research organisations to inform their strategies and help with their management and funding decisions (policy and programme evaluation). However, it is not always clear whether the quantity targeted in a particular analysis/assessment has a causal interpretation and even if that is the case, whether it can be estimated without bias from the study data. For example, findings from observational studies are frequently criticised for lacking confounding control. 

This course will review statistical designs and analyses that enable valid causal effect estimation, including Propensity Scoring and Mendelian Randomisation in observational studies, methods for dealing with non-compliance in trials, Mediation Analysis and some Quasi-experimental designs. We will focus on methods that are easily accessible to the applied researcher. Throughout methods will be motivated and demonstrated with real data examples from health research. The course will use Stata although analyses are easily translatable to other general-purpose statistical software packages.

BHI Executive Education Programme Natural Language Processing (NLP) 2024

Description

Course Aim:

The course provides an introduction to the nature of medical text, and the technical and organisational challenges encountered when processing.

The course will be based around practical examples and widely used NLP tools.

The course aims to provide an introduction to the major techniques of natural language processing, and to provide participants with the skills to create their own NLP applications, using both rules based and statistical approaches. Methods will be introduced for extracting structured information from text, and for automatically classifying text, together with the selection of data for training and for evaluation.

The course will discuss aspects of NLP that are specific to medical and biomedical texts, and develop a critical awareness of the issues associated with these texts. Participants will be equipped with the skills needed to analyse their own language processing problems, to design and test solutions, and to understand the limitations of those solutions.

 

The course will provide a practical instruction in the use of some widely used tools in NLP, including nltk (a Python toolkit).
