HOPE Agora 2019
2 June - 5:00 pm - 4 June - 3:00 pm CEST
The event will take place on 2-4 June 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and will discuss the topic “Evidence-informed decision-making in healthcare management”. It will close the HOPE Exchange Programme 2019 which will run from 6 May 2019 to 4 June.
Is there a shortage of nurses in my department? How many of them are necessary? What type of nurses should be employed? Perhaps the priority should be to modernise the medical equipment in the department instead? The workers in healthcare organisations who have managerial roles face these sorts of questions daily. How are these questions answered?
The HOPE Agora on evidence-informed decision-making in healthcare management will look at different approaches to answer these questions. Scientific literature is an important source of information. However, decisions are also influenced by local data, stakeholders’ positions, cultural factors, etc. The conference participants will discuss the role of different types and sources of evidence. The point of view of researchers, policy-makers, managers and many other stakeholders will be considered. The conference will host experts in this field and the HOPE Exchange Programme participants, who visited a foreign country to learn about how these issues are tackled in a different setting. In increasingly complex health systems, the ability to use all types of available evidence to improve decision-making in healthcare is crucial to ensure that citizens are offered the best care possible.
