The Centre for Health, Technologies and Social Practice is an interdisciplinary centre at the University of Leeds, launched in October 2012.
It draws together researchers with interests in the social practices through which technologies of health are designed, delivered and implemented. Current research includes work on responsible innovation, patient reported outcomes, evidence based policy and inclusive technologies.
The Centre runs seminars and events and members participate in a range of other projects and study groups.
