Greenwich Accelerated Development Programme (GADPro) in Social Networks: Social Networks in Health

The workshop will introduce participants to some of the main analytical concepts in the study of social networks, and how such concepts may be adopted to examine a wide variety of practical issues in the analysis of health care processes, the management of health care organisations, and in the understanding of health-related individual behaviours. 

Examples of analytical skills that the programme will provide include: 

  • collection and visualisation of network data; 
  • analysis of personal communities (ego-networks); 
  • understanding network centrality and social capital; 
  • selecting appropriate descriptive measures of entire networks, and
  • implementing and interpreting dynamic network models for social influence and social selection processes.

The programme can be found here. It involves a mixture of lectures and Lab sessions designed to provide hands-on experience in the analysis of network data. During the Lab sessions participants will work individually and in teams on actual data and will be introduced to state-of-the-art software packages and tools available for visualising, describing, and analysing network data.

Lunch seminars will provide an opportunity for participants to learn about how and why social network analysis is used in many practical situations. Invited speakers will discuss examples of applied research on specific health-related problems. Examples of topics discussed during lunch seminars include relational approaches to well-being, health inequality and differential access to health care, aging and social networks over the life-course, regionalization policies, relational coordination, and the design of network-based interventions.

If you have any questions about the programme, please contact the Scientific Coordinator, Francesca Pallotti.
