200 Stakeholders Discussed Care in the Healthcare System

Care

Professor Victor Montori from the US Mayo Clinic was a main attraction to a lot of participants, when person-centered healthcare was debated on Tuesday 22 January from a Danish and American perspective, respectively, and focus was on both patients, staff, professional medical competency and the ‘system’.

Associate Professor Maria Kristiansen shared her experience from being a close relative of a terminally ill child and explained how her research sheds a light on the importance of personal care, presence and intimacy.

Associate Professor and Research Director Maria Kristiansen from the Center for Healthy Ageing and Department of Public Health had organised the innovative dialogue meeting between a number of stakeholders all interested in patient-centred treatment. The concept had been carefully thought out down to the smallest detail and signalled responsiveness, care and equality at all levels.
