Wellcome Images; the picture library model as a tool for medical education
Catherine Draycott and Carly Dakin
Catherine and Carly will talk about developing and delivering a comprehensive resource of medical imagery to serve the needs of medical education, research and public health communication. There is a clearly established need for imagery in all of these fields which is corroborated by Carly’s recent MSc research. The talk will cover where and how these images should be sourced and how best they can be delivered as well as the benefits for the contributors and creators of the images. The Wellcome Image Awards and the Wellcome Clinical IMI Award are two potential sources of valuable recognition for creators and contributors and the talk will briefly cover the Awards’ past present and future.
