Patient Included Events and Conferences

Annual Patient Conference [The Myositis Association]

In 1993, Betty Curry and a handful of patients formed an organization that is now celebrating its 20th anniversary as The Myositis Association. During these twenty years, there have been improvements in treatment for myositis, and the disease is now better understood. However, there is still a long way to go to achieve the ultimate goal - a cure.

TMA's Annual Patient Conference has also evolved during this time to include sessions focusing on alternative therapies, research developments, appropriate exercises, caregiver concerns, practical adaptations, maintaining fitness, and coping with the emotional challenges that accompany myositis.

Attendance at the Annual Conference now approaches 400 patients and their caregivers. If you have not yet attended TMA's Annual Patient Conference, you ought to consider being with us in Louisville this year. Not only will you hear from a broad range of health professionals, including TMA's 20-member Medical Advisory Board, but you will also gain valuable insights and knowledge from other patients who understand the challenges you are experiencing.

Health Care Quality Summit Saskatchewan

We are a team of individuals with many different skills committed to helping Saskatchewan’s health system make care better and safer for the people of Saskatchewan.We were created by government in 2002, in response to a recommendation from Commissioner Ken Fyke in his report “Caring for Medicare: Sustaining a Quality System.” Saskatchewan was the first province in Canada to establish a Quality Council. Read our legislation, The Health Quality Council Act. Early on we consulted with health regions and providers about how we could best help them improve health care in Saskatchewan. At the time, it was tough selling a product – quality – that was difficult to describe. So we set out to learn where care was good and where we could do better.

Patients in power | Patients conference

The Patients in Power Conference in November 2012 was the first in which patients were involved in all stages from the event concept, as co-organizers, speakers and audience. The Conference was a unique opportunity for patients and patient organizations across diseases to meet and discuss with the other “partners in healthcare” issues of concern to all.
The unanimous conclusion of the 1st venue was that patients support the values that govern the public character of the national healthcare system and that the conference constitutes an excellent forum where all "partners in healthcare" can meet to discuss issues of common interest. The participating patient organizations agreed that the conference offers an advocacy opportunity for problems common to patients of chronic diseases. Among the key findings of the conference were that patients and families lack information about their patient rights and their healthcare benefits and that there is total absence of patient involvement at all levels of healthcare policy planning, making, implementation and evaluation.

Personalized Healthcare Summit:

The time and need for personalized healthcare has come. Our rate of healthcare spending in the United States is unsustainable, especially given our low scores compared to other developed countries on measures of quality and access. We are not delivering the kind of care we want for ourselves, our families, and our communities. We need to do better, and one of the proposed solutions is to move from one-size-fits-all care to personalized care.

The 2013 Personalized Healthcare Summit is designed to explore the progression of personalized healthcare from concept to practice. The one and a half day summit will feature topics that highlight and explore new personalized healthcare discoveries with the potential to improve patient care. Participants will gain knowledge of tools to aid in the integration of personalized healthcare into clinical care. Through interactive discussion and collaboration, thoughts for the future of personalized healthcare will be discovered and developed.

REshape is a program set up by the Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen. Our aim is to fire up and grow a movement of people who believe the next decennium should be the era of the rising of self-empowered patients, in where we will embrace the patient, their family and informal care into the healthcare team : Patient as Partner like we like to call it in Nijmegen.
We nurture the movement by setting up conferences to exchange thoughts, visions and listen to each other. But also by doing research on the different aspects of participatory healthcare which helps to move forward. As a vehicle for the (needed) changes we are scouting, inventing and sharing innovations (inter) nationally to improve healthcare.
