Health System Emergency Preparedness: from COVID-19 to Climate Change - Dr John Richmond
From Andy Tattersall
During his talk Dr. Richmond will draw upon research from the COVID-19 response in both Canada and the UK, to explore how health systems organised their prolonged response to the Global Pandemic, and what lessons can be learned to help prepare our health systems for the increasing number of weather-related disasters brought about by a changing climate. Avenues for future research as well as practical implications will be discussed and questions from the audience answered.
Dr. Richmond holds a PhD in Management from Warwick Business School (UK) and has more than 10 years of international healthcare management experience, including in the area of Risk and Emergency Management. His research has three interconnected streams including healthcare quality improvement (QI) and safety, organisation studies, and health system emergency preparedness, resilience and response (EPRR). Dr. Richmond is currently a Lecturer in Healthcare Management and Leadership at The University of Sheffield, School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) and the Programme Director for the Master of Public Health in Management and Leadership.
