Third Health Revolution by Sir Muir Gray
How we can build the culture of our network so that we all feel we belong?
Tuesday July 28th, 2009
11:00am - 12pm (EST) / 10:00am (CST) / 9:00am (MST) / 8:00am (CST)

Sir Muir Gray has worked in public health for over 35 years and one of the creators of the Cochrane Collaboration. He is currently director of the National Knowledge Service and responsible for the National Library for Health and the leader of the UK screening programme.
He helped pioneer Britain's breast and cervical cancer screening programmes and was knighted in 2005 for the development of the fetal, maternal and child screening programme and the creation of the National Library for Health.
"In the 21st century, knowledge is the key element to improving health. In the same way that people need clean, clear water, they have a right to clean, clear knowledge. Knowledge is the enemy of disease, the application of what we know will have a bigger impact than any drug or technology likely to be introduced in the next decade.
I'm talking about three types of knowledge here Statistics, Evidence and Mistakes - we need to be able to deliver these as simply and abundantly as we deliver clean water. We need to take pure research and systematically review it to produce guidance that goes into the "water supply" and then comes out of the tap" Sir Muir Gray
