BRADFORD HILL SEMINAR

John Newton will describe current approaches to the use of population data by Public Health England (PHE) to support its functions. This will include a brief overview of some routine surveillance and other outputs but a more detailed discussion of the use of the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) estimates for England. The GBD project is a major international collaboration that aims to quantify health loss in a detailed but comprehensive and useful way across the world and in individual countries. Collected and analysed by a consortium of more than 1,800 researchers in more than 120 countries, the data capture premature death and disability from more than 300 diseases and injuries in 188 countries, by age and sex, from 1990 to the present, allowing comparisons over time, across age groups, and among populations. John will describe how PHE has contributed to the GBD project and how the outputs have been used in England. He will also mention other international projects including the recently founded WHO Euro Burden of Disease Network. John would be keen to hear from members of the audience about their experience of using GBD estimates in their work.

Chaired by Dr John Battersby, Training and Workforce Lead for Knowledge & Intelligence, PHE .
