NEW DATE: TUESDAY 24 JUNE 2014 - THURSDAY 26 JUNE 2014
Hosted by the University of Birmingham, the 2014 EHMA Annual Conference is to take place, for the first time from Tuesday 24 June to Thursday 26 June.
During the three-day conference over 300 researchers, policy makers, managers and health leaders will discuss and exchange ideas on a number of theme areas within the broad overall theme including: Leadership across healthcare organisations and systems, and across health and other sectors; Challenges of leadership in primary care, secondary care, tertiary care and mental health; The role of front-line leaders in health services; The contribution of patients and the community to leading healthcare; Leadership and ethics: values and accountability; Involving clinicians in leadership; Leadership, organisational development and future leaders; The future challenges for healthcare leadership; Leadership in clinical and health services research; Leadership and technology.
Health systems in Europe are facing unparalleled levels of challenge, complexity and uncertainty. Health system leaders, at every level, have a responsibility to engage with and tackle the enduring problems of funding constraints, technological developments, cost pressures, increasing chronic disease, ageing populations and growing societal expectations and demands.
From the frontline to board level the quality of leadership is a crucial determinant of the quality, effectiveness and safety of health services. Effective leadership is needed not just within organisations but across them, in health systems and networks, across sectoral boundaries such as health and social care, and across the public, private and not for profit sectors. Many of the current challenges for health systems require leaders who can create teams across healthcare and other sectors, lead networks, create a stable and motivated workforce and be accountable to boards, funders, the public and patients as well.
Interactive sessions and several networking opportunities together with an informal and relax atmosphere will facilitate the discussion, the exchange and the birth (or consolidation) of partnerships among the representatives of all health sectors coming from all around Europe and beyond.
Join us in Birmingham to learn how different countries are approaching these questions, the answers they have found and to discuss them in depth with some of the best brains in European Healthcare.
