Person-centred care

Thursday, 02.10.2014 | 12:30 - 14:00

Organised by DNV GL, Strategic Research and Innovation, Healthcare Programme with members of the Young Forum Gastein Network

All countries are facing major challenges in the delivery of high quality care. Together we have to make choices about the healthcare we want and the best way to deliver it. Adopting person-centred care (PCC) approaches is core to transforming mindsets, cultures, structures and processes in the pursuit of quality care for all. PCC is both a rallying cry to change and a first step. This session will provide a forum for Young Forum Gastein Scholars and subject experts to discuss the challenges we face and to set out policy and practice priorities for creating person-centred care that is sustainable.

This workshop will:

  • Set out the vision for person centred healthcare in Europe.
  • Identify policy priorities for making person-centred healthcare a reality for all.
  • Explore practical steps to delivering safer, smarter, person-centred healthcare that is sustainable.
