Health care is changing rapidly

Personalised, multidisciplinary and multiprofessional treatment of patients is growing in importance. There are also profound changes in society: the population is ageing and becoming more culturally diverse. Patients have become more assertive, critical and informed. The growing number of chronically-ill patients is posing new societal challenges. Prevention is gaining importance. Technological developments, such as full genome sequencing and artificial intelligence, have drastically changed the landscape of healthcare.

An interdisciplinary Metaforum working group considered the implications of these developments for the health and care professions of the future and reflected on possible changes in education. On 10 January, this working group will present its position paper, followed by debate, breakout sessions and interaction with policy makers.
