Yesterday’s seminar: Are we doing what’s best for the patients?

Great enthusiasm yesterday when 90 persons attended our seminar "New knowledge about education in patient-oriented health promotion - Are we doing what’s best for the patients?"

Staff and patients need more knowledge and evidence-based education in clinical health promotion! That’s one of the conclusions from yesterday’s seminar.

Representatives from Lund University, the health care sector, patient organizations, regional and national decision makers attended. Seven presentations covering different aspects and a panel discussion with six representatives.

Some of the interesting topics were: new plans for a Master of Clinical Health Promotion, a good example from the University Hospital in Malmö where they have an active lifestyle programme for patients before kidney transplant, and we need a complete curriculum for education in patient-oriented health promotion.

 “We need to prioritize and work together - taking one thing at a time” was one of the final comments in the panel discussion.

Last conclusion: Are we doing whats best for the patients? – Not yet, but we are working on it!
