Looking for the answers in health and social care
LSE Health and Social Care, a research centre within the LSE's department of social policy, has won a Queen's Anniversary Prize for applying research to the advancement of global health and social care policy. "The centre works to bridge the gap between research and policy," explains Professor Alistair McGuire, head of the department of social policy. A key part of its work involves identifying best practice across the European Union and discovering how it stems from local policies. The centre is currently involved in developing the EU's mental health strategy. Its work has also fuelled debate about contentious healthcare reforms in the United States.
