Dr Stephen Timmons and Dr Bridget Roe spent 6 days in Manila to develop areas of mutual research interests with colleagues from the Ateneo de Manila School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH). They undertook a round of meetings and visits, facilitated by Dr Jeremie de Guzman of the Ateneo Centre for Health Evidence, Action and Leadership, ASMPH. Some of you might remember Jeremie as he attended the Sustainable Innovations Workshop here at Nottingham last year and described their innovative MD-MBA programme. On their visit, Stephen and Bridget enjoyed extensive discussions with Dr Dayrit, Dean of ASMPH, and colleagues, about this programme which they think could be the starting point for both publications and empirical research.
In addition, Stephen and Bridget met with colleagues from the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, who jointly run the MD-MBA programme, as well as colleagues from the (undergraduate) Schools of Health Sciences, and Management. They also visited the Ateneo Java Wireless Competency Research Centre and heard about their cutting edge research to develop an App for Electronic Health Records, designed to help meet the geographical and environmental challenges to providing healthcare in the Philippines. It is hoped that we can continue our relationship with ASMPH with plans being made for the development of a conference paper and further research.
