Event summary

The Five Year Forward View states: ‘Long term health conditions – rather than illnesses susceptible to a one-off cure – now take 70% of the health service budget. At the same time, many (but not all) people wish to be more informed and involved with their own care, challenging the traditional divide between patients and professionals, and offering opportunities for better health through increased prevention and supported self-care.’

This connection event brings together health professionals and companies that are innovating in this area, explores how this vision could be translated on the ground with local case studies and looks at the role of new and existing technology in supported self-care.
