Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide and have a staggering impact on patients’ lives and the provision of healthcare around the world.
Tackling conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke is of vital importance if patient outcomes are to be improved and healthcare costs lowered.
To achieve this, and in doing so address clinical inertia, a combination of innovative communication strategies and behavioural science can provoke small changes that produce a meaningful difference in health outcomes.
This pharmaphorum webinar, in association with Complete HealthVizion, will look at how to help chronic disease patients to live well for longer, by providing a clear understanding of healthcare professionals’ and patients’ behaviours and communication needs.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 6th February from 14:00-15:00 GMT/09:00-10:00 EST, when a world-class faculty representing a wide-range of disciplines, including social science, multichannel and medical affairs strategy, will discuss how behavioural change approaches can be used to avoid major health problems and the increasing costs associated with declining health.
They will consider drivers of decision making in chronic disease management and look at why issues such as ‘behavioural complacency’ prevent progress and consider the lack of short-term benefits associated with many disease management approaches.
All too often there is little urgency to act in patients at risk from chronic disease, despite a growing burden that increases their suffering and the time they spend in clinical practices with HCPs.
This webinar will help change that, by looking at:
•How to assess readiness to change among patients and HCPs
•What strategic approaches work best in this setting
•How to target the most important HCPs and convince them of the need for change
•How to measure the effectiveness of behavioural change tactics
