The Smart Sensor Systems for Self-Care Symposium will discuss the developing role of self-care in the UK's health provision. The event will showcase new developments in non-invasive sensing and the role of genomics, while also exploring the barriers impeding the uptake of near-patient testing, including the need for education and the economics.
The Symposium will bring together GPs, equipment developers, academics, small and medium enterprises, health administrators, insurance companies and politicians.
