Qualihosp: 21st edition to be online and free and it will look at lifelong care
Between April 27 and 30, FGV EAESP’s Center for Health Planning and Management Studies (FGVSaúde) will hold QualiHosp 2021. This year, the event will be online and free of charge, and its main theme will be Lifelong Care: Coordination and Continuity. The idea is to approach this topic from different angles, starting from a broad view of the health system and subsequently illustrating aspects through cases of public and private sector organizations, focusing on integrated care until the end of life. Finally, the participants will discuss what really matters for each stakeholder in the system, including patients, users and service providers.
“At FGVSaúde, we have always organized events that deal with contemporary subjects. We seek to be plural and diverse, in terms of both the subjects covered and participants. Our events are always an opportunity to meet new people, even if not in person, as has been the case since 2020. Qualihosp 2021 will look at the hot topic of care continuity, from the time people are healthy at home to the time when they leave hospital and return home, hopefully healthy again,” says Ana Maria Malik, FGVSaúde’s coordinator and the president of Qualihosp’s Scientific Committee.
Laura Schiesari, the president of Qualihosp and an FGV professor, adds, “QualiHosp is one of the foremost events in the area of health management. It attracts professionals from many different Brazilian organizations and always addresses relevant and current topics for the sector. The Scientific Committee brings together professionals from more than 40 organizations, including universities, hospitals, associations and professional councils. In 2021, we will discuss a fundamental issue for health today. As the population ages and we experience the triple burden of disease, meaning growth in chronic non-communicable diseases and coexistence with contagious and infectious diseases, the users of health systems and services will need integrated, individualized and high-quality care.”
