L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Sue Ziebland Sue Ziebland

Professor - University of Oxford
United Kingdom


Sue Ziebland is Professor of Medical Sociology and Director of the Health Experiences Research Group (HERG), in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. 

She is also a senior research fellow at Green Templeton College and in 2013 she was appointed as an NIHR Senior Investigator (renewed 2017).

In May 2017 Sue was appointed as Programme Director for NIHR Research for Patient Benefit.

Sue’s background is in medical sociology, with increasing focus on qualitative research approaches.   Sue has worked as a researcher in the academic, NHS and voluntary sectors and has published over 200 papers and chapters in social science and health publications. Sue was invited (by Ann McPherson) to be involved in the DIPEx (now Healthtalk ) project in 1999 when it was still at the kitchen table stage. She spent a considerable (and perhaps not surprising) amount of 1999 getting the projects through a national research ethics committee. Since then Sue has worked closely with colleagues in HERG  and the  DIPEx charity to develop the methods used in the projects and raise funding for the research.

Healthtalk has been emulated worldwide within the DIPEx International Collaboration, which currently includes Japan, Korea, Australia, Norway, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, Canada, Israel, USA and Switzerland.
