Learnings shared: Public dialogue on scanning and surgical innovations in pregnancy​ – hear from the project delivery team involved

Public participants from across England took part in a series of online workshops in April 2021 that aimed to explore parents’ perspectives, hopes and fears towards research into scanning technologies and surgical innovation in pregnancy.

This event is aimed at researchers, public engagement/ impact professionals and those associated with the project. You will hear from the public dialogue project delivery team who will present the key findings and share insights into the process of running a public dialogue around scanning and surgical innovations in pregnancy.


Researchers from the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Medical Engineering (CME) at King’s College London are currently developing a number of technologies that could help improve the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that some babies develop while in the womb. These technologies have the potential to improve outcomes but could also impact the experience of families in this situation and lead to a change in the way they are cared for.

For the public dialogue, members of the public were invited to join discussions around the research, to understand their thoughts on these developments to help influence future research and innovations in scanning and surgery during pregnancy in the UK and, ultimately, shape the experience of expectant parents in the future.

Join us at this online event where we will:

    • Provide an overview of what a public dialogue is, how it can add value and have impact on research
    • Provide an overview of the whole project from inception to reporting; including planning, recruitment, process design, findings and learning/reflections from those involved
    • Share key findings from the dialogue discussions and report
