HI Conversations

Welcome to participate in Health Informatics Conversations – a research seminar series arranged by the Health Informatics Centre.

Computer, two women, circle with text listen learn discuss.

What are the Health Informatics Conversations?

The conversations are about research-oriented health informatics topics, i.e. – presenting a published article, your research area, a relevant theory or a method etc.  

The Health Informatics Conversations are recurring the last Thursday every month at 12.00 via Zoom and last for one hour. This hour includes 20 minutes of presentation and leaves the rest of the time for discussions, all in English. 

If you are a PhD-student – this is a credit-bearing activity, as long as the topic is relevant for your research.

Next HI Conversations seminars

  • 27 April 2023: Cara Swain, surgical registrar employed by the Royal Navy and currently a full-time Doctoral student with specialist interests in trauma and emergency general surgery, with a secondary interest in medical education, particularly the use of simulation. 

​​​​​​​Title: “Live tissue training” and the concept of fidelity in trauma surgery simulation

“Live tissue training” involves using live anaesthetised animals as human patient simulators to practice trauma surgery. This presentation will describe how and why simulation is used, when learning to manage surgical trauma patients, and explore the concept of fidelity and its importance in simulation design. This will be contextualised using results from a systematic review and thematic analysis of the literature exploring the use, and educational value, of live tissue training.
