Fixing Us: Tackling The Patient-Engagement Challenge

1st December 2020, 13:00 – 18:00 GMT

Chronic ill health and disease has presented humanity with major problems, for which we have invented many solutions, and yet the health of citizens continues to decline.

Access to technology, innovative treatment, revolutionary medicine, bespoke nutrition, fitness services and tailored healthcare is unprecedented, and yet more people continue to suffer from a wide range of conditions.

Fixing Dad believes the key for helping patients and consumers to be healthier is getting them to engage with their health. We help people to do this via an agnostic approach to engagement that comprises TV, short video content, virtual wellness forums, peer-to-peer patient-engagement, social media and events in partnership with healthcare professionals, leading organisations, policymakers and brands.

Fixing Us: Tackling The Patient-Engagement Challenge, in partnership with Giant Health, brings together some of most innovative examples of patient-engagement, innovative thinkers, unique perspectives and some of the biggest organisations in healthcare.
