Seminars and conferences form a key part of HSMC's overall activity, and play a crucial role in the dissemination of research findings, the sharing of good practice within the health service sector, and the generation of new ideas for further research and consultancy projects. Our seminars and conferences are based on our research programmes and are one of the main settings in which we debate the results of research with practitioner and academic colleagues.
