"The State of Science in Patient Education and Learning", Conference
In cooperation with University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-Centred Care (GPCC) and Institute of Health and Care Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy of University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
The aim of this conference is to discuss and problematize specific areas in the field of patient education and learning. This is a state of science conference, meaning that specific themes will be problematized by invited researchers in the field. The presentations will result in papers aimed for publication in scientific journals.
Today there is an extensive body of knowledge concerning patient education and learning. A changing disease panorama in an increasingly information-saturated society which is subject to more complex/growing health issues will place increasing demands on future health care practice in relation to both patients and health care professionals. For this reason, there is a need to synthesize specific parts of the field of knowledge as a basis for evidence-based health care practice and research.
