Place: 

ICAB, zaal Madera, Witte Patersstraat 4, 1040 Brussel

Van 2015 tot 2018 toetst Crosstalks in een reeks van thematische workshops nieuwe trends en initiatieven die zich in de gezondheidszorg aandienen aan de drie kernbegrippen uit ons gezondheidsmodel – betaalbaarheid, toegankelijkheid en kwaliteit – en gaat na welke invloed ze hebben op de verantwoordelijkheid van de verschillende betrokkenen en de solidariteit tussen die belanghebbenden onderling.

Programme: 

Overgewicht komt wereldwijd steeds meer voor. Een systemische benadering (alles is met elkaar verbonden) toont niet alleen de enorme complexiteit van de mogelijke oorzaken van obesitas maar ook dat de oplossing met meerdere componenten rekening moet houden. Deze workshop zoomt in op gepersonaliseerde voeding en gepersonaliseerde preventie als mogelijke invalshoeken voor een langetermijnoplossing.
