24/01/13 Closing Conference of the Chain Of Trust Project




When? 24 January 2013
Hotel Bloom
Rue Royale 250
1210 Brussels

The two-year project Chain Of Trust is coming to an end; we would like to invite you to the closing conference to share the main project findings and recommendations with a wide range of stakeholders.

The Chain Of Trust project was launched in 2011 with the paramount objective of advancing the empowerment of patients, and health professionals across the EU in their understanding and effective use of telehealth services. After two years of intense work we are extremely proud of the wealth of knowledge on users’ perspective we have managed to put together through this project and we are fully confident this knowledge could make an important contribution towards more user-centred telehealth policies and services.

This one-day conference will  be the occasion to increase your awareness of the users’ perspective – patients, nurses, doctors, pharmacists – on telehealth and the role trust and acceptance play in fostering  uptake of telehealth services and tools. Finally this closing event will aim at defining strategies for taking forward project’s findings and recommendations and foster better cooperation among different telehealth stakeholders to promote telehealth policies and services that put users at the centre.

Who can attend? Users representatives (Patients, Doctors, Nurses and Pharmacists); eHealth and medical devices industry leaders; Representatives of international organisations (Council of Europe, Who, etc.); EU and national level policy makers; Representatives of regions and their organisations; Representatives of other health, ICT and eHealth stakeholders; Representatives of academia and research institutes; Representatives of HTA agencies, and Coordinators of other EU eHealth projects
