402 – Digital Health Curiosity Camp: Part 1
This is part one of a special two-part series of Talking HealthTech, recorded at the Digital Health CRC Curiosity Camp.
In these episodes, we dive into discussions about healthcare research and systemic change. Our guests in this episode, Jade Barclay and Dale Trevor, bring diverse perspectives on patient advocacy, equity in clinical trials, and healthcare innovation. These conversations were held amongst a group of digital health researchers, industry experts, patient advocates, and other key healthcare stakeholders, all gathered for a collaborative exploration at the Curiosity Camp.
- Challenges in Current Healthcare Research: Jade Barclay addresses the critical issue of representativeness in clinical trials, highlighting how current research often overlooks the diversity of clinical realities, particularly neglecting those severely affected or with multiple health conditions.
- Bridging the Divide Between Research and Patient Experience: Dale Trevor emphasises the need for a shift in healthcare research methodologies, advocating for multi-disciplinary teams that align patient experiences with clinical outcomes and represent the complexity of real-world patient conditions.
- Systemic Changes and Collaboration in Healthcare: The episode explores the necessity for systemic changes in the healthcare industry to better address chronic conditions and improve healthcare equity. It also discusses the role of collaboration and community networks in driving innovation and improving patient outcomes.
