– the importance of inter-sectorial work for better health

Invitation to the 3rd Nordic Workshop

Take part in a two day interactive workshop together with faculty leaders, scholars, teachers, and policy makers from the Nordic countries, and listen to world class keynotes. The Nordic workshop is organized by Linköping University and Karolinska Institutet, with support from Kungliga Vetenskapsakademien (KVA) and Inter Academy Medical Panel (IAMP). The workshop is the third and the follow-up to the Nobel Forum conference “Educating Health Professionals for the new century” in 2012, and “Educating health professionals for tomorrow´s global healthcare systems - the role of universities” at Lund University 2014. Nordic Workshop is 2017 arranged as a pre-conference to the 3rd international ProPEL conference.

Tomorrow’s health systems faces a multitude of challenges; the sustainable development goals as well as the Swedish commission on equal health make it clear that health is dependent on many factors, inside as well as outside of what is normally defined as health systems. Hence, there is a need to address health in all policies. Moreover, balancing personalized medicine with public health is another challenge, which includes care, cure, and prevention. To achieve this, county counties, municipalities, and patient organisations need to collaborate. Let’s meet in Linköping and work together so that our students will be ready for intersectorial work achieving better health in all communities.

Key themes to be addressed

Health professionals and health in all policies - actions for practice
Health professionals combining care, cure and prevention – utopia or reality
Personalized care – the role of health professionals
