Rethinking health systems: integrated care and empowerment of primary care Virtual event

While COVID-19 is particularly challenging for at-risk groups like people living with diabetes, it has accelerated integration of care and uptake of digital health. In a series of virtual events, we will explore what we have learned from the current crisis and how we might improve diabetes care in future as a result.  

The first event in the series focusing on integration of care, co-organised by the EFPIA Diabetes Platform and the European Diabetes Forum (EUDF) took place on 11 June at 11am.

Moderated by Nick Fahy, Researcher in Health Policy and Systems at Oxford University, the event featured the following speakers:
  • Chantal Mathieu, President, EUDF
  • Bastian Hauck, IDF Europe; CEO, Dedoc Labs GmbH
  • Sara Cerdas, Member of the European Parliament
  • Francesc Xavier Cos Claramunt, Chairman Primary Care Diabetes Europe
  • Maurizio Guidi, Co-Chair of the EFPIA Diabetes Platform; External Engagement Leader Lilly Diabetes
The second event of this series will focus on the potential of the digital transformation in diabetes care and will take place on 15 June. More information is available here.
