Hi Maureen,

 

Yes, supporting people to self manage more effectively (which includes everything from sharing in decision making, skill acquistion, knowledge and understanding, access, social, emotional and psychological support through to lifestyle, nutrition, keeping active and whanau wellbeing) is a key theme at the conference.

Good Luck with the conference!

I hope there will be more emphasis on looking closely at the cause of the 'modern' chronic diseases that are crippling our health services (not to mention the sufferers!) and less on hospitalization, medication and surgical interventions.

Hi Maureen - yes, you may be interested in the Co-design pre-conference workshop which will focus on new ways of health providers and patients/consumers designing services together to ensure they more adequately meet patients/families needs.

Good Luck with the conference - hopefully new ways of looking at patient health and wellbeing will include encouragement of lifestyles to avoid disease and self management to cope with existing chronic  disease.
