Challenges of international health policy learning, and reflections on a career in and out of academia
Ellen Nolte, Professor of Health Services and Systems Research at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
Join us for a special lunch and learn with Ellen Nolte on November 30 12pm-1pm in HS 208. All our welcome.
Ellen Nolte is Professor of Health Services and Systems Research at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. She holds a PhD from London University and a Master’s degree in public health (MPH). Her expertise is in health systems research, international health care comparisons and performance assessment. Over the past decade she has developed an internationally recognised research portfolio around innovative service models that seek to better meet the needs of people with complex and long-term health problems, with a particular focus on care coordination and integration within and across sectors. She has published widely on health systems, integrated care, European health policy and population health assessments both in the international peer-reviewed literature and the wider literature. Ellen was previously head of London Hubs of the European NObservatory on Health Systems and Policies and Director of the Health and Healthcare Policy programme at RAND Europe, Cambridge, UK.
North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO)
The North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO) is a collaborative partnership of interested researchers, health organizations, and governments promoting evidence-informed health system policy decision-making. Due to the high degree of health system decentralization in the United States and Canada, the NAO is committed to focusing attention on comparing health systems and policies at the provincial and state level in federations.
Health Systems Performance Research Network
The HSPRN is a multi-university and multi-institutional network of Ontario researchers. We work closely with policy and provider decision makers, to find ways to improve management of the health system. Our network includes investigators, trainees and project staff.
HSPRN researchers develop high quality evidence that is relevant to health system policy development and decision making for performance excellence. Our research focuses on specific target populations and related health system policy themes.
