The 2018 Conference Committee look forward to welcoming you to Galway to participate in our conference.
The aim is to strengthen the circle of knowledge in relation to participation and empowerment for service users.
A primary goal of Healthy Ireland is to create an environment where every individual and sector of society can play a role in improving health and a core element of this is strengthening participation in decision making for health and well-being. This approach necessitates partnerships to realise its potential including partnerships between sectors and between agencies, service providers and service users. Just as health is more than the absence of disease, partnership must go beyond consultation or tokenism and must empower all stakeholders within a supportive environment. This is consistent with re-orienting the services, the fifth action area of the Ottawa Charter.
Specifically, the conference will explore:
The outcomes associated with a focus on engagement with people as service users in relation to a re-orientation of health services
Identify interactions that empower, rather than disempower service users
Key learning in relation to participation and engagement with services
How to enhance aspects of health and social care services that support people to maintain a good quality of life.
