Round Table on Patient Empowerment

09:00 / Gent, Belgium
Organised by e-Ucare

Want to gain insights and hands-on experience on Patient Empowerment? Come and join us for the next round table!

 

The next Round Table of Health Cluster Europe will take place in Gent, Belgium on Wednesday, September 24. The Round Table will focus on the theme Patient Empowerment. 

 

In a fast pace a lot of new types of treatments,  technologies, products and information systems have been introduced to the health and wellbeing market. Solutions that are designed to assist people who are in a vulnerable moment in their lives. Therefore it is crucial to know what their needs are and implement this knowledge into our projects.

 

In the processes of designing and providing care, the care receivers or -users need to participate as an autonomous actor taking increased responsibility and a more active role in decision making regarding his or her health. This active role is referred to as ‘patient empowerment’ and occurs when the goal is to increase the capacity of patients to think critically and make autonomous, informed decisions. Empowerment also occurs when patients are actually making autonomous, informed decisions about self-management.

 

From their own function and experience service users develop a view on care providing and use of assistive technology. During the Round Table insights and hands-on experience will be given on how to involve patients in decision making processes, improve their health literacy and self-management capacity. Additionally, you have the opportunity to visit a Care Ethics lab where empowerment and dignity in care are trained through learning by experience.

 

If you are looking for tips and tricks to approach patients with respect, mobilizing their potential in (re)designing care, then this Round Table is definitely an inspiration.

 

Program:
09h30  Welcome
10h00  Testimonials and workshop on patient empowerment
12h30  Lunch
13h30  Visit care ethics lab
16h30  Return to Gent

The Recap (Regional Care Portals) project aims at boosting innovation and employment by strengthened cooperation at international level.  Therefore the project has been developed with thirteen partners from the North West Europe region. In view of the scale and the urgency, Recap focuses specifically on patients with chronic heart failure problems, one of the main causes of death in Western Europe. By focusing on a specific target group, the quality of the solutions is improved, services can be more easily delivered to new patient groups and integration in the transnational portal is facilitated. The Symposium will offer you the opportunity to hear an update on progress made and future planned developments.

 

The research and testing of innovations will take place in three regional hubs, each of which will focus on one aspect where the collaborating partners already have gained experience (Telehealth solutions, Intelligent organization of care and Decision supporting systems). 

 

The programme of this event will include presentations regarding the progress of activities within hub Leuven-Cambridge who focus on intelligent systems supporting decision-making and inspiring company speakers from Philips, Docobo, NELFT, HEE and KU Leuven.
