PUTTING PATIENTS FIRST CONFERENCE
NEHRU CENTRE 20TH OCTOBER 2010:
9.30AM – 1.30PM
In order to improve healthcare, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Engaging patients is not easy; yet, it is fundamental to achieving better outcomes in consumers’ healthcare.
Patients and doctors need to trust and respect each other. The better the doctor-patient relationship, the better will be the amount and quality of information about the patient’s disease transferred in both directions, enhancing accuracy of diagnosis and increasing the patient’s knowledge about the disease.
Doctors need to work in partnership with patients by providing Information Therapy – which is something we seek to incorporate in the process of delivering the best medical care to patients.
A well- informed patient is a satisfied patient.
The conference is open to everyone. Participation is free. We would like to listen to your inputs.
The conference will be broadcast on the Web, to ensure higher visibility !
