EuHPN Workshop 2016

EuHPN Workshop 2016
European countries face an urgent need to provide their citizens with more personalised services, responsive to changing models of health and social care. This shift, encouraged by new technologies, is characterised by more distributed and decentralised care provision.  Hospitals focus increasingly on highly specialised diagnoses and treatments, while primary and community care adopt some features which were previously available only in secondary care centres.  Home care services, and forums for patient self-management, are becoming important factors in the overall care system, and non-clinical environments are playing a significant role in patient education and support.  These trends add up to a move away from care provision in traditional silos, towards a web of care which extends from the home, to spaces for work and leisure, and, of course, to newly imagined clinical environments.






This year’s EuHPN Workshop will address the effects of this societal change on the physical environment of care. A range of speakers from across Europe, including invited speakers from Spain, will address:

  • The rationale for the web of care, including service reform

  • How to plan for radical reconfiguration of healthcare infrastructure

  • Designs for a new generation of healthcare buildings

  • Health-promoting public spaces

  • Technologies which enable better care, in and out of health facilities

  • Implementing new care models and their supporting infrastructure.

Who should attend and who will be speaking?

EuHPN workshops bring together professionals who work in health policy development, health system planning, healthcare architecture and design, health facility managers, senior managers and clinicians, healthcare capital asset experts and patient representatives. This broad range of participants ensures deep knowledge sharing and cross-fertilisation of ideas. Our participants are expected to be active, by contributing questions to speakers and taking part in audience debates. Our speakers come from the same background as our audience members, balanced between policy, theory and practice. Many have been directly responsible, in senior positions, for the case studies and projects they describe. All are chosen because they offer expert analysis and a fresh, challenging perspective. The multi-disciplinary, multinational range of speakers will ensure that workshop participants gain insights into developments across the whole of Europe.

The venue for the Madrid 2016 is LASEDE, the headquarters of the Madrid College of Architects (COAM).
