Modern medicine is amazing. Not only are we living longer, but we are living better. This event will discuss revolutionary new tools for training surgeons, how new medicine is tested in clinical trials and why, sometimes, doctors make mistakes

Why do doctors get the diagnosis wrong?

Nikola Cooper (Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham and a hospital doctor. She chairs a not-for-profit organisation, the UK Clinical Reasoning in Medical Education group, which exists to promote excellence in teaching the diagnostic process in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. She is an expert in ‘clinical reasoning’ – the thinking and decision-making processes associated with clinical practice.)
Diagnostic error is the most common, most costly, and most dangerous of medical mistakes. The ‘system’ plays a part in this, but one of the most common reasons for diagnostic error is errors in thinking – in other words, the doctor had all the information available to make the right diagnosis but then made the wrong diagnosis. Why does this happen? Join Nicola on a surprising journey to understand why even highly knowledgeable clinicians make mistakes – and what you can do to help prevent them.

Fake organs, Real lives

Richard Arm (My job as a researcher at Nottingham Trent University involves working in a design environment with surgeons and radiologists and engineers, to produce imitation human organs using synthetic soft tissues that look and feel real, with a lot of help from cutting edge materials and technologies.)
I'm going to show you 3D printed human organs that we make for surgeons to practice on.
I'll be talking about how they're made and what we're doing about helping to train more surgeons (and their robots) in the near future.

Partnering with members of the public in designing and delivering clinical research together.

Cally Rick (Dr Cally Rick is an Associate Professor of Clinical Trials at Nottingham University. She has 18 years’ experience designing and managing clinical trials, focussing on neurology trials, complex interventions and elderly care. She is the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit Lead for Patient and Public Involvement and is passionate about ensuring that patients, carers and the public’s voices are central to clinical research. )
Clinical research aims to improve the health, medical and social services for everyone and ensure that services are effective and value for money. To do this, we need to collaborate with patients, carers, and members of the general public to ensure that their views and opinions are included and that the research into new treatments is important and meaningful. This talk aims to look at the research cycle from idea to implementation and all the ways people can get involved to shape future health research.
