Over the course of 2013, internationally renowned experts have been commissioned for WISH to lead teams carrying out policy research into eight topics – Accountable Care, Antimicrobial Resistance, Big Data and Health, End-of-Life Care, Mental Health, Obesity, Patient Engagement and Road Traffic Injury and Trauma Care.

With a team of experts drawn from academia, industry and policy making, they have looked in depth at the challenges faced in each area – scanning the literature and interviewing hundreds of experts in the field.
