The meeting takes place in amphi Turing

Social network analysis (SNA) is a set of methods and concepts based on graph theory to analyse relational phenomena. Its development has been progressive in fields ranging from social sciences to exact sciences, while SNA can have numerous applications in health research. It can indeed be used to study collaborative networks of health professionals, care pathways, spreading of infectious diseases and risky behaviours or diffusion of health prevention and promotion programs. The recent availability of health claims data for research purpose, such as the French national health data system (Système national des données de santé, SNDS), notably provides multiple opportunities to further benefit from SNA.

This day-long workshop aims at presenting an inventory of research applying SNA to healthcare data and includes presentations by keynote international speakers. It targets in particular researchers, whatever their primary area of interest (public health, geography, economy, sociology, etc.). There is indeed a growing need to develop synergies between teams carrying out SNA in the field of health, as its application is still limited in France, in comparison to other Western countries, despite its expected benefits. Interested policy-makers, health professionals or health service users are also welcome to attend this workshop.
