4 Topics 09:30 - 11:00
In this session speakers will discuss how important person-centered care has emerged to be in the Pandemic and how the challenges imposed by COVID-19 are no reason to roll back the tide on person centered care. On the contrary, it is crucial to ensure that efforts to co-design healthcare, use technology, involve families especially in a key role in the care of vulnerable people, and engage patients in decisions are still high on everyone’s agenda and being implemented. Specific attention will be given on the importance to co-create services, and the impact on the gains in higher quality, safer, more appropriate, effective, and efficient care.
