From 2005 until 2009, Crosstalks ran a bottom-up and interdisciplinary project “The Future of Medication in a Patient-centered Health Care”, a series of conferences and workshops to develop constructive dialogues between all the partners in the health care sector.
The ambitious aim was to establish non-mediated and constructive dialogues beyond all the disciplines and organizations involved focusing on the future role and added value of medicines. In parallel, we wanted to construct, gradually, a culture of exchange towards a sustainable and efficient health care. Thus the project set out from a bottom-up and open dialogue between universities, industry, sickness funds, health care providers, physicians, pharmacists, knowledge centers, professional health organizations and policy makers.
The project resulted in 2 congresses, 7 workshops and the publication "In Sickness and in Health. The Future of Medicine: Added Value and Global Access".
