The IFoA diabetes working party - our journey so far

Beyond Control - what could be our next big health threat?

A New Framework for Future Mortality
This presentation examined the challenges arising in setting mortality improvement assumptions, exposing known but under-explored vulnerabilities of current practices. An entirely new framework is proposed, one built around the characteristics of short-, medium- and long-term outlooks, which puts greater weight on forward-looking (rather than extrapolative) approaches. 

Clusters and correlations in international mortality trends
Speaker: Florian Gomez, Partner Re
We investigate trend change events across various countries and both genders in detail, revealing cross-country clusters and serial correlations in the trend change signs.

'Researching research' - how to make use of medical research papers
Speakers: Matthew Edwards, Willis Towers Watson and Dan Ryan, COIOS Research
Experienced mortality/ longevity specialists discuss the issues in the interpretation of  medical research papers, using a range of case studies. The case studies will include COVID-19 points of current importance. 

What can we learn from mortality by cause of death?
Speaker: Dov Raphael, Consulting Actuary
Members of the Mortality Working Group of the IAA have analysed changes in mortality for about 30 causes of death and will discuss how causes of death are classified, and the problems of long-term data, appropriate metrics, including "years of life lost" (YLL)* and more.

Towards Precision Insurance: dynamic hazards modelling in Big Data
Speaker: Elena Kulinskaya, University of East Anglia
In this talk, we demonstrate how the landmark survival modelling of electronic health records (EHR) can be used for dynamic prediction of individual and population life expectancy. 

Recordings of these webinars are available for members and non-members to purchase.
