Upcoming workshop on modern health care delivery systems and the role of hospitals

The Belgium Federal Public Health Service and WHO/Europe will organize a meeting entitled, "Workshop on Modern Health care delivery systems and the role of hospitals", 21-22 November 2011, in Brussels, Belgium.

Work in this field in the European context is closely linked to the global initiative started by WHO headquarters in identifying key questions to be addressed by the global hospital agenda within the wider context of coordinated care. Experiences from the various countries and regions of the world can be used to initiate a review of the place, role and function of hospitals within changing health systems, to support all Member States in the challenging process to remodel their hospitals appropriately and to build capacity to support health care delivery reform. 

The present workshop aims to move a step further on the road to better integration and coordination of health care service delivery.
