Health care systems across Europe and worldwide and are facing a rapidly changing demographic and year on year rise in long term health conditions. It is now becoming widely recognised that the systems of health care designed in the 19th and 20th centuries are no longer sustainable.
Many of the factors effecting health and wellbeing are not related to medicine. Health is also about social, environmental factors as well as people’s levels of confidence, knowledge and skills to manage their health.
This conference will explore the key interventions that will enable health care systems to move into the 21st century and how they can become sustainable.
Exploring technology, integrated care, self-care, empowerment health literacy and activation the conference will show case key initiatives with the aim of stimulating thinking and ideas and practical steps towards a new medical model that fully incorporates the psychosocial elements of care.
