Salzburg Global Seminar 2017: Toward a Shared Culture of Health

Seminar: Toward a Shared Culture of Health: Enriching and Charting the Patient-Clinician Relationship


The Salzburg Global Seminar is a five-day meeting with a strong focus on the individual patient-clinician relationship. The seminar aims to aggregate perspectives and experiences in order to create new approaches to empower individuals and enhance health systems. It will also look for different ways to develop and record the journey through health and illness that every individual experiences.

Program Goals:

  • To equip teams of individuals from different nations with new insights and tools that will inform action plans and help them take leadership roles in their own countries as self-care and medical records continue to evolve and transform care;
  • To disseminate insights gained through widely read social media and publications that have the attention of a broad range of health professionals, patients and laypersons, including a series of papers to stimulate global progress in care.
