About this event

  • 5 hours

This interactive event explores the link between health equity and participatory medicine, and the critical role that trust plays in creating equitable, inclusive, and human-centered healthcare environments and outcomes.

Join a group of patients, caregivers, clinicians, administrators, and payers as we explore the interpersonal and structural barriers to trust, how participatory medicine principles apply in diverse healthcare environments, and how we can help advance solutions that create the conditions for trust between clinicians and patients/caregivers, supported by healthcare institutions and payers.

This event is open to all - we welcome diverse perspectives to help forge inclusive and effective solutions. Join in person or online.

About the organizer

To create dialogue, and a culture of change to support our mission we have developed Creative Learning Exchanges [CLEs]. CLEs are lively events that bring key health care stakeholders together to learn from experts and one another. Participants co-create strategies that humanize the culture of health care relationships.

At these events we hope to provide the following to our attendees:

- Knowledge participatory medicine through SPM’s Manifesto and its links to health equity and humane care

- Networking with thought leaders and innovators at intersection of participatory medicine, humanizing health care, and health equity

- Idea exchange and relationships with those who seek to humanize the culture of health care relationships and co-create solutions
