Using data presented in the PHE Fingertips tools to understand geographic variation in healthy lifestyles

In 2012, one in three deaths in England occurred under the age of 75. A wealth of information suggests that lifestyle changes can improve long term health outcomes, including mortality. Public Health England presents information on a variety of lifestyles and outcomes and presents this information in Fingertips. This talk will provide an introduction to these tools and suggestions on the best ways to use them.

Nicola Dennis joined the West Midlands Cancer Intelligence Unit in 2011, working on general cancer analysis, before specialising in sarcoma. After the creation of Public Health England in 2013, Nicola was given the opportunity to take on the role of Senior Knowledge Transfer Facilitator, broadening her work programme to cover public health more generally. Her current role involves demonstrating PHE’s various tools and resources to interested stakeholders, and to signpost to useful information.

Trials, tribulations and gravitas of ‘actioning’ data

The digitalisation agenda for the NHS is fast approaching and with it, a growing plethora of data… just data. Data sat in databases, representing people, or actions, or processes but not doing much. It doesn’t talk much to data in other databases; it doesn’t inform us of the presence of relationships or patterns; it doesn’t predict the future. At best, it describes the people, actions or process that it represents. We present case studies of our experiences of attempting to utilise routinely collected data to better inform practice or service delivery.

Dr Sarahjane Jones is a Senior Research Fellow in Health and Social Care, with a particular interest in patient safety and quality improvement. She recently completed an NHS England funded project using ‘big data’ to investigate the relationship/s between staffing and outcomes such as falls, pressure ulcers and clinical well-being. In addition, Sarahjane is currently involved with Coventry City Council to increase the uptake of HIV testing. She is the chair of the RCN’s Quality Improvement Network (West Midlands), an alternative vice chair for a HRA Research Ethics Committee and an advisory group member to the West Midlands Health Informatics Network.

Eloise Phillips is a doctoral candidate at Birmingham City University and an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. As an advanced nurse practitioner, with over 10 years' senior nursing experience, she is passionate about the advancement of the nursing profession and healthcare research. Her career spans both the acute sector and, more latterly, the community sector, with embedded experience in district nursing, case management and advanced practice. Her research interests and PhD focuses on the admission prevention agenda and understanding the admission burden in the case management programme and her hopes and aspirations are to add value to the nursing profession and strive to advance nursing and patient care at a local, regional and national level. In her spare time, she supports the charity Facing Africa. Working as a nurse on charity missions to Ethiopia, a cause which is close to her heart and something which she is passionate about, allows her to give something back and put her skills to good use internationally.
