The European Health Management Association (EHMA) is delighted to host its Annual Conference under the theme ‘Health Management: managing the present and shaping the future’ on 15-17 September 2021.
This year, the Conference will take place digitally through the lens of Lisbon, Portugal and is organised in collaboration with the Associação Portuguesa de Administradores Hospitalares (APAH) and its academic partners, the Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública and the Universidade Nova: Nova School of Business and Economics.
Over the last year, health systems across Europe have encountered the most difficult times for a generation. Health services buckled under the strain of COVID-19, confronting enormous challenges around hospital capacity and workforce planning during a pandemic. As managers are pondering whether there will be a return to a ‘new normal’, important questions will be asked about how to increase the resilience and readiness of health systems whilst also providing high-quality routine care catching up on the backlog of many months of missed operations. Health management will be at the centre of providing solutions for these unprecedented difficulties. Bringing practitioners, researchers and academics together to share solutions has never been more important than today.
The EHMA Annual Conference is widely considered the preeminent place to share experiences, skills and competencies in the field of health management. With a strong focus on innovative practices in governing, planning and delivering services, the EHMA 2021 Annual Conference will be the perfect location to get in touch with your European and international colleagues discussing the latest developments in governance and leadership, digital transformation, integrated care, and creating sustainable person-centred services.
*You can benefit from a discounted registration fee until Monday, 6 September 2021.
