Thursday 18 May 2017, 18:00 - 19:30

You are invited to register for the next Global Health Policy Programme (GHPP) seminar at Green Templeton College:

Topic: 'The complexity of low value care'

Speaker: Roberto Grilli, MD, Director of Clinical Governance Program, Local Health Authority of Reggio Emilia, Italy

To register please complete the online form

Directions to Green Templeton College are available   

There is a growing awareness that resources are wasted in clinical practice through the overutilisation of health services, whenever interventions of low clinical value are used or, alternatively, when effective ones are adopted but in clinical indications in which their risk/benefit profile is unfavourable. However, tackling health services overuse is challenging, and several practical, methodological, and policy problems have to be overcome to allow the assessment of its prevalence, the identification of its main determinants and, eventually, design and implementation of interventions able to achieve the desirable changes in clinical practice. The presentation is aimed at exploring some of those aspects, outlining how they are addressed in the Local Health Authority of Reggio Emilia, the local organisation of the Italian NHS responsible for the provision of care to the 500,000 residents of that province.

ROBERTO GRILLI MD, epidemiologist and health services researcher, is currently Director of the Clinical Governance Program at the Local Health Authority of Reggio Emilia (Italy), the organisation responsible for the provision of care to the 500,000 residents in the province. His role includes the development of initiatives aimed at assessing and improving quality and safety of health care, as well as the design and conduct of research projects on issues relevant to the strategic development of health services. From 2006 to 2015 Dr Grilli was Director of the Regional Agency for Health and Social Care of Emilia-Romagna.
He has been working extensively in the areas of health technology assessment, quality of care evaluation, development and implementation of practice guidelines, systematic reviews of scientific literature, and governance of healthcare organisations. He has been involved in several national and international projects. He is author or co-author of 229 publications, including 24 books or book chapters.
