The accumulation of knowledge and evidence in the health care has been tremendous, but still we are not able to change providers’ behavior nor the old matrix or structure of service delivery. Patient empowerment and engagement has been the buzzword for almost a decade, but it seems like the most commonly used strategy, financial incentives, is just not enough.
Are you interested in discussing how can we learn from social movements and apply that knowledge in health care?
Please join our ONLINE Learning Room – Organizing health on September 28th 2013 from 11:00am -12:00 pm EST facilitated by Predrag Stojicic, MD MPH (Serbia on the move – Voice for Health Initiative)
This session will explore the idea of community organizing application in the various contexts of changing health care systems and how and with whom the collective power should be build in order to achieve progress. More importantly, we will discuss how can we analyze the existing power relations in order to maximize the effects of community organizing efforts. From innovative ways to improve quality of healthcare to advocating for specific patient rights or fighting corruption, we will use various examples from the Leading Change Network as our starting reference.
If you are interested in participating please fill in the online form by Wednesday September 25th: http://bit.ly/18yi9LN
