Price, Helen Smith
MetadataShow full item record
This panel will focus on issues in public health not only related to treating or managing disease but also promoting (e.g., through primary care) and maintaining health. Poverty, ageing population, urbanization, environmental factors, etc. all contribute to the increasing challenges in achieving desired levels of health care. In addition to the “quantity” of care, “quality” is also important, which can be improved by filling the gaps in knowledge, new technologies, or a change in focus from “sick” care to “health” care. The panel will discuss current challenges and opportunities towards achieving long-lasting health, including education, promotion of healthy lifestyles, and the prevention of disease.
