Study visit + Project Development Meeting
18 May 2016 - 20 May 2016
The region of Gelderland (NL) is glad to invite all regions that have experience with projects on chronic diseases or that are willing to implement a broader strategy in this field, to a two-day working meeting with AER in close cooperation with Radboud University in the city of Nijmegen. We invite members with health work background, as well as public servants, health cost representatives, private health care providers and (E)-health entrepreneurs working on self management supporting tools or metholodogy to attend this interesting meeting, where participants will be able to share their experiences in E-Health in terms of patient self-care and self-empowerment, and to explore the possibilities of bringing “ParkinsonNet” E-Health/self-care model to other regions in Europe.
ParkinsonNet is an initiative of Radboud University Medical Centre that was created in 2004 in order to develop an innovative approach and ecosystem to offer Parkinson’s disease patients the best possible care, as well as to improve their quality of life by improving Parkinson-specific expertise and supporting personalized healthcare. Over the years, ParkinsonNet has built a solid network of specialized care composed by all 68 Dutch health administrative divisions and more than 3000 care professionals, who provide intensive professional training, develop evidence based guidelines, educate and empower patients in self-management and faciltate research. ParkinsonNet has also worked on the creation of public-private partnerships with health entrepreneurs and health insurance companies for the sake of an affective value based care.
