How can patient perspectives be built into efforts to define and drive sustainability of healthcare systems?

This session follows on from All.Can’s session at EHFG 2017, where we asked what different stakeholders could do to improve efficiency in cancer care. This year we will explore how patient insights and experiences can be converted into evidence to drive policy change, using cancer as a case study for other chronic conditions.

The session will present interim findings from the All.Can patient survey and make patient voices heard – quite literally, as we will hear direct insights from selected participants of the survey through recorded statements. The survey’s interim findings will serve as a basis for round-table discussions, including the opportunity for each table group to present a quick pitch on their ideas surrounding the discussed theme to the audience and panellists. We aim to identify concrete next steps for implementing policy solutions.

Results and ideas from the session will feed into All.Can’s policy engagement activities to be carried out in 2019 and beyond.
