RESPOND Symposium

Making a difference – achieving People-Centred Care in 2022

We would like to warmly invite you to join us at the live, virtual RESPOND People-Centred Symposium 2022 chaired by Martin McKee and Dina Balabanova.  

The symposium will showcase the lived experiences of people who seek, provide, or enable chronic illness care navigate health systems. Now we need to hear from more service users, health care providers, carers and communities – we need help from people with lived experiences to understand the challenges they face and find ways to move forward.  

We invite you to join us in an open discussion about why health systems often fail, how to respond to the needs of those which these systems have been designed to serve, and where to find answers. Together, let's put people into the centre of chronic care.  

Follow us on the RESPOND website, Twitter and Facebook for more details.
