Patient, Heal Thyself

Thursday 16th May 2019

St Giles-in-the-Fields, 60 St Giles High Street, WC2H 8LG (09:00-18:30)

Our conference presidents, Dr. Adrian Tookman (Clinical Director, Marie Curie) and Emma Kinloch (Chair of the National Cancer Research Institute Consumer Forum), invite you to 'Patient, Heal Thyself'

 

The thinking here is that the health system has finite resources and patients need to take responsibility for their well-being, be it by optimising interaction with doctors, symptom management, mental health, nutrition, exercise etc.

 

We hope to build something of interest and practical value for patients, HCPs, industry, media and politicians. 

 

Sessions will include:

  • Improving your own treatment

  • Palliative care

  • Sex and disability

  • Patient nutrition 

  • Rare diseases

  • Patient-industry collaboration

  • Communication in healthcare

  • Patient mentors

  • Enabling patients through art

  • Patient data

  • Chronic pain management 

  • Technology in healthcare 

  • Community health

 

The day will end with a keynote presentation from broadcaster, patient advocate and BBC's people's strictly, Trishna Bharadia on empowering patients and a networking event with jazz and champagne.

 

You can find a short film providing the highlights of our previous meeting (18th May 2018) here and a written report here.
