16th Annual Psychology, Health and Medicine Conference

The Psychology, Health & Medicine conference is a one-day annual event hosted by the Division of Health Psychology of the Psychological Society of Ireland in association with the Division of Health Psychology of the British Psychological Society, Northern Ireland Branch, and draws an interdisciplinary audience of over 100 delegates from Ireland and further afield each year. Now in its sixteenth year, the aim of this conference is to provide a forum to share findings from high-quality innovative research on psychology and health and highlight the varied contributions of health psychology to health and healthcare in Ireland.

There are three keynote speakers:

Prof. Carsten Wrosch is Research Chair in Ageing and Health and Professor of Psychology at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. His research examines from a self-regulation perspective on how people can adjust to challenging life circumstances and prevent adverse consequences on their psychological, biological, and physical health.

Prof. Claire Foster is Professor of Psychosocial Oncology at the University of Southampton and Director of the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group. Claire's research focuses on understanding the impact of cancer and its treatment on everyday lives and how equipped people feel to manage this.

Marie Ennis O'Connor is a Public Relations practitioner and internationally recognized keynote speaker, writer, and consultant on global trends in patient engagement, digital health, and participatory medicine. Her work is informed by her passion for embedding the patient voice at the heart of healthcare systems and values.
