GGI colleagues win EHMA award for best European paper

11 October 2021

GGI staff and associates have been singled out for praise for their work on a study carried out with universities in Belgium and the US to explore the impact of COVID-19 on health and social care integration in three regional health systems.

At this year’s European Health Management Association (EHMA) conference, which took place digitally last month, more than 400 representatives of the healthcare ecosystem across Europe discussed the theme ‘Health management: managing the present and shaping the future’.

At the end of the conference, winners were announced for the 19th edition of the Karolinska Medical Management Centre and EHMA Research Award, and EHMA Awards for the Best European Paper, Best Non-European Paper, and Best Poster.

The best European paper was awarded to an abstract on Partnership-working in health and social care: a multi-national, regional analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on health and social care integration. GGI colleagues Jessica Lubin and Nabil Jamshed, along with GGI special advisor Professor Usman Khan, were among the authors.

All of the award-winning papers feature in the EHMA 2021 Abstract Book (the GGI paper is summarised on page 12). In May this year, Usman Kahn also wrote an Illumination piece about the study.
