Transforming the Medical Model – An International Symposium

Healthcare systems across Europe and worldwide 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 healthcare 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.

The symposium hosted by The Centre for Empowering People and Communities (CEmPaC) in Berlin, Germany, will explore the key interventions that will enable healthcare systems to move into the 21st century and how they can become sustainable, improving outcomes and reducing costs. Exploring a new medical model that fully incorporates self-care, empowerment, health literacy and activation and the role of digital solutions. This symposium will show case key initiatives with the aim of stimulating thinking and ideas and practical steps towards a new medical model that focuses on “what matters to me” rather than just “what is the matter with me”.

This event is a small highly interactive symposium designed to allow detailed discussion with, and access to, leaders in patient empowerment. All presenters have many years experience in enabling and implementing patient empowerment strategies. Two members of our Advisory Board, Prof. Anne Rogers and Dr Angela Coulter, will also participate in this symposium as speakers.
