The EuroHealthNet 2019 Annual General Council Meeting and seminar took place in Madrid, Spain from Tuesday June 4th to Thursday June 6th, hosted by our Spanish national member, the Ministry of Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Welfare.
Take action: the role of health professionals in addressing health equity
Seminar, Tuesday 4 June 2019 – Madrid. Open to all.
Health professionals – as the front-line and face of the health system – are key actors in helping address health inequalities. How can their training and working environments support them to help people facing disadvantages live longer and healthier lives?
The Annual EuroHealthNet Seminar addressed these issues in relation to the wider public health and social workforce. Participants discussed and explored new solutions to tackling health inequalities, including integrated community-based approaches, adaptations to health professionals’ training, and good practice initiatives such as social prescribing. We also considered the need to collect and interpret data, helping to forecast health equity and disease burden trends. These topics are increasingly important as European societies – including health professionals – will need to adapt to rapid technological, economic, and demographic shifts which threaten to increase health inequalities.
