PATIENT FORUM - III: "PATIENT ASSOCIATIONS" (only in Spanish)
Wednesday, September 28th (12h30-13h30)
The role of the patients will gain momentum in the next future. They deserve to have a bigger importance in their relationships with doctors, health managers and payers”.
This is one of the assertions that currently would reach a highest agreement from all the stakeholders involved in the Health Systems.
However, many doubts remain unclear:
-when should the patients have the main role?
-how can be conveyed the patients participations in the HS in the best way?
-what can be asked to the patients, as individual or in association, when they want to have a say in the HS?
These questions and many other should be discussed and they have to be considered from different points of view: patients and their associations, doctors and payers.
