Alliance - My World, My Health Survey
The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) are currently running the My World, My Health project. It aims to discuss the wider factors which contribute to our wellbeing, and how data linked to these factors could be used better. These wider determinants are not necessarily ‘medical’ and could include aspects of our lives such as environment, employment, lifestyle and the communities or society that we live in.
During November, the ALLIANCE held workshops to hear people’s views on the subject. Alongside further workshops planned for January 2021, they have launched a public survey. The survey draws on early insights from the November workshops and poses some additional scenarios and provocations to get the public’s views.
For more background on the project, you can listen to the ALLIANCE live project podcast. In the recording, the My World, My Health Project Manager is joined by colleagues from the Digital Health and Care Innovation Centre, Chaloner Chute (Chief Technology Officer) and Dr Kate Mark (Public Health doctor), to discuss the various implications of using data for better outcomes.
