About this event

Almost every day you hear references to the ageing population, the growing burden of chronic disease and medical and technological advances. But do you know the scale of change anticipated, the impact that this is likely to have on population health and the way we deliver health and social care, and over what time frame?

This session will help your understanding of the strategic context in which your health care organisation operates. It will be of value to anyone thinking strategically about the future of their organisation.
