The University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-Centred Care (GPCC) is pleased to announce the first Global Conference on Person-Centred Care, that will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden, from May 14th-16th, 2024. Optional pre-conference workshops will be offered lunch to lunch from the 13-14thMay, followed by the full programme of the main conference from noon on May 14th to noon on May 16th.
The GPCC was established in 2010 envisioning sustainable health through sustainable care: to prevent and decrease suffering, and to strengthen the efficacy of health care through person-centred care, with the support of the Swedish Government’s strategic investment in research. Interdisciplinary research and knowledge utilization is accomplished through local, regional, national and international collaboration with different stakeholders and experts.
The aim of the Global Conference on Person-Centred Care is to provide an arena for diverse people with an interest in furthering person-centred care practice, innovations, perspectives, and knowledges. The conference will provide an arena for explorations and accounts of person-centred care as related to several interdisciplinary and interprofessional fields, including integrated care, comprehensive care, and personalised health founded on partnerships, transcending healthcare practices and organisations, as well as policy and structural levels. We hope to create opportunities for networking in a person-centred community that will flourish beyond the conference.
The conference will thus be of interest to health professionals from across the globe, patient and family carer representatives, researchers and students from various disciplines, leaders and decisions-makers in healthcare and health policy, as well as the healthcare industry. The conference will operate as a hybrid event, with condensed virtual sessions offered to those unable to attend on-site.
