”Scotland - delivering health and care fit for the 21st century”

The presentation will set out how Scotland is approaching the challenges of delivering health and care in the 21st century. It will challenge the status quo and argue that the only way to deliver sustainable health and care services is through cross-sectoral collaboration and a determination to innovate.

Keynote speaker 2: Une Tangen, Senior Advisor-  Innovation, research and Digitalization, The Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities

Why we need to change the way we work and how we can do it in practice?
Public Sector is facing significant challenges, especially when it comes to health and care services.

We face major challenges in the public sector, and in particular, this concerns health and care services. But challenges also provide opportunities. Une Tangen will provide Examples from Norwegian municipalities and show that it is possible to solve a number of tasks in new ways. There is a gradual change in which the recipient's own resources are put in the center. Assistance for self-help, everyday mastering, a shift in the mindset from treatment to prevention and from late to early efforts means that scarce resources can be more targeted to those who need it most. Digitalization and use of welfare technology also contribute to increased coping, security and control over their own health, as well as preventing stress injuries to employees. In the future, the use of digital solutions and welfare technology will provide good services to many more residents.

What you will learn during the event;

  • Innovative ways to support independent living in rural communities 

  • Successful ways of using distance spanning technology to improve access 
and quality of care 

  • How technology can improve collaboration and delivery of a more person centered care. 

  • The impact digital has for patients and families as well as professionals and care organizations.
