The “Primary Care Partnership” conference will bring national and international thought-leaders together with the single aim of finding a solution to Ireland’s numerous, but not insurmountable, health challenges.
Across two days, 32 leading academics, health & social professionals and advisers will discuss lessons learned and transformation to a Primary Care-led health care system. Speakers from Australia, Canada, Germany, the USA and the UK will deliver keynote speeches as well as join panel discussions alongside their Irish counter-parts.
A satellite session on Technology in Primary Care will explore technological advances and best practice. Thought-leaders in digital and health technology will come together to share their vision for the future and the role technology will play in Primary Care. This session will take place on Friday, the 31st March in parallel to the main session.
Each of the two days will end with workshops where the ideas discussed will be refined into action plans.
Significant time has been set aside to allow delegates to network with other Health & Social Care Professionals, both within their own area of expertise, and their colleagues in Primary Care.
At the inaugural conference in 2016, a submission document outlining a vision for the future of Primary Care was drafted. Last year, that document was the catalyst for a significant shift in the public discourse on health care reform. Now, all stakeholders recognise the necessity of a decisive shift to Primary Care for the benefit of patients. This year, the outcome of the workshops will, again, form the basis of a submission document which aims to influence public discourse to the same extent.
