ANNouncing Cracking the Nut Health 2017 !
Connexus Corporation is pleased to announce the next Cracking the Nut Health learning event will take place in November 2017. Connexus is working to organize this two-day learning event, which will highlight cutting-edge approaches to applying people-centered services to strengthen community health. Based on the findings from Cracking the Nut Health 2016: The Role of Communities in Building Resilient Health Systems, the 2017 conference will dive deeper into the "tough nuts" of community engagement and focus on the client as an integral part of health system services design and delivery.
To ensure that health care systems consider first and foremost the needs of the individuals and communities receiving the care, we need to look beyond the traditional approaches to addressing the health care needs of the world’s poor. This learning event will encourage cutting edge innovations and thought leadership that will allow us to find solutions that balance the interests of people with cost effectiveness.
Engaging the Community and Users of Health Care. What matters most to people in terms of access to primary health care? How can we make health services more responsive to what users want? What community engagement models and methods are most effective and sustainable in effecting long-term positive health changes (e.g., improved hygiene, nutrition, etc.)? What drives successful community buy-in? What community actors are best situated to play key roles in the process?
Assessing health care needs from the front-line. What innovative assessment methods are being used to understand community preferences? What can the private sector teach us about how to ensure health care is responsive, efficient and client-focused? What tools can help to put health care users in the driver’s seat of health care decisions?
Influencing government health policies and decision making. How can local, regional and national governments benefit from people-centered design methods? What are appropriate roles for unsalaried community health workers, such as traditional birth attendants, in managing and delivering care? How can we improve access to care, the range of services delivered and efficiency by including health careusers?
