Don't miss this action-oriented conference full of transformative ideas.
This conference is about driving change. And that change is the long-awaited transformation of primary health care through organizational and system-wide adoption of “people-centred care.”
The World Health Organization defines people-centred care as that “in which individuals, families and communities are served by, and are able to participate in, trusted health systems that respond to their needs in humane and holistic ways.”
This year’s conference is shaping up to be an inspiring and thoughtful dialogue on the themes of:
- Empowering people to be active participants improving their own health – and the health care system
- Successful delivery of people-centred care
- Improving system navigation
- Planning for people-centred care using a population need-based approach
