Network analysis in Evidence-informed Health policy

Kathryn Oliver, PhD studied Molecular Biology at UCL graduating in (2003). Via a MSc in History of Science, Technology and Medicine (2004), she became interested in broader questions about how scientific knowledge and expertise are constructed, owned and used. Her PhD (Manchester, 2012) was half sociology, half public health, and explored social networks of power, influence and evidence-use in public health policy making. Following postdoctoral positions at the University of Manchester in Sociology and the Manchester Business School, she held lectureships at UCL and Oxford. She joined the LSHTM in December 2017.

Frontiers for Network Analysis in Health Systems Research and Implementation Science

Health services and systems researchers are increasingly interested in studying the role and utilizing the power of social relations.  Social networks have been studied to inform, promote, and evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of health interventions.

The focus for this year’s Health Services, Systems & Policy Seminar Series at the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation (IHPME), University of Toronto is on applications of social network analysis techniques and theories to study health services and systems. The series will engage Canadian and international scholars to discuss empirical and theoretical efforts to highlight the promise and potential, caveats, and limitations of network analysis in the field.

In person or webinar presentations and Q/As will be broadcast online, and will be archived on the IHPME website. To access the previous lectures in this series please go to
