Future-proofing our health system

We may have to get used to shocks to our health system. Future pandemics, increasingly severe climate events and economic shocks like Brexit will test the resilience of our healthcare system. What can we learn from international experience of building health system resilience, what strategies can we use and where do we go from here in Ireland?

PANEL DISCUSSION: 

Rethinking the role of hospitals: After Covid-19 what are the lessons and challenges ahead?

The enormous pressure that the pandemic has put on hospitals should bring about a re-examination of their role in our healthcare system. Where should hospitals fit into the future healthcare system? Our panel discusses a range of perspectives – clinical, the frontline healthcare workforce, the patient experience and the trends driving smart hospitals.
