Risky Behaviours Amongst Catalan Children With ADHD: Does Pharmacological Treatment Improve Outcomes?

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common mental health disorder amongst young children. Prevalence rates around the world range from 3-7% of school-aged children. Notwithstanding, there is an ongoing debate about the existence of over-diagnosis across developed countries because ADHD is controversial due to the fact that stimulant medication is typically administered as part of the treatment regime.

TUE 10 DEC 2019, 12.30-14.00 - SEMINAR - COW 1.11

Speaker: Professor Anne Beeson RoyaltyIUPUI 

Could more first-hand knowledge of healthcare systems in other OECD countries reform the US system?

Anne will present the outline of a sabbatical project that has prompted this visit to LSE and also several visits to Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management. 

The project addresses a problem many countries face which is particularly severe in the U.S. Healthcare costs are rising rapidly and the U.S. is struggling to slow increasing costs and maintain quality of care. This project aims to uncover new approaches to these problems that may be right under our noses: successful policies in other countries.

Speaker: Professor Melanie Luhrmann

Long-run health and mortality effects of exposure to universal health care in infancy 

Melanie examines a fundamental re-organisation of the healthcare environment to universal healthcare in the United Kingdom, which occurred through the introduction of the National Health Service (NHS) in July 1948. Immediate large decreases in infant mortality ensued, which were focused on the neo-natal period and larger for individuals who prior to the NHS had a lower access to medical services.

Please note: after the seminar Melanie will be holding 20 minute meeting slots which you can also book for - subject to availability.

The effect of abortion legalization on fertility, marriage and long-term outcomes for women

An evaluation of the short- and long-term effects for women of access to subsidized, legal abortion by exploiting the Spanish legalization of abortion in 1985. Using birth records and survey data, we find robust evidence that the legalization led to an immediate decrease in the number of births to women aged 21 and younger.

Speaker: Doctor Ranjeeta Thomas, Assistant Professor of Health Economics, LSE

Do public health interventions improve agricultural labour supply?

Agricultural productivity is a key driver of economic development in many developing countries. A healthier workforce results in increased labour market participation and worker productivity.  But prevalent diseases such as malaria present a barrier to economic growth in many endemic countries, having an adverse impact on labour supply and productivity. This study identifies the causal impact of a recent large scale malaria elimination initiative combining universal indoor residual spraying and free door-to-door mass drug administration (MDA) for malaria in Southern Mozambique on agricultural worker absenteeism.



WED 16 OCT 2019, 13.00-14.00 - SEMINAR - KSW G.01

Emerging technology in social care and health: building a research agenda - Professor Paul P Freddolino

A scoping review of published and unpublished literature has identified strengths and challenges in the current use of emerging information and communication technology (ICT) in health, mental health and social care. Issues requiring further research were also noted.  Service areas covered include child welfare, older adults and carers, health and medicine, mental health, substance use disorders and other addictions, and veterans. This presentation will highlight what is known, what is debatable, and what must be investigated further to determine the potential impact of ICT in these arenas.
