COVID-19: the health policy and care response

The UK has long been a global leader in preparing for pandemics. However, the COVID-19 crisis has exposed weaknesses in Britain’s public health strategies. Academic experts from LSE’s Department of Health Policy in the fields of pandemic response, social care and health inequalities will consider pandemic response from a number of different angles, comparing responses across international health systems and decision-making and suggesting what the next steps should be for the UK and internationally.

Brexit, epistemic injustice and Northern Ireland in a time of COVID-19

At the most general level this paper contributes to the proposition that politicians and people in mainland UK – Great Britain, but especially England – generally minimise or even ignore or sideline and marginalise the knowledges of people in Northern Ireland. This, in short, amounts to epistemic injustice, what Fricker describes as a 'wrong done to someone specifically in their capacity as a knower'. The paper contributes to the broader proposition by reference to the context of health law and policy, specifically in relation to Brexit. The paper first diagnoses epistemic injustice in the latter setting via interview data. From there, the paper proposes the latter can form the basis for developing governance fora to ameliorate epistemic injustice.

Policy Failure in Health Systems Transformation: Closing the ‘Know-Do’ Gap

Globally, countries are transforming their health systems to meet the challenges posed by the shifting burden of disease, demographic changes, workforce pressures, the arrival of digital health, Artificial Intelligence. To overcome these challenges, health systems are looking to similar solutions – improving population health, patient centredness, strengthening integrated care and overcoming fragmentation.

While the 'why's' and 'what's' are not clear for transforming future global health systems, less attention is being paid to 'how' to do it.

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.
