The 2012 "Prescrire Encounters" to be held 25 and 26 May in Angers, France: working together in the name of better healthcare

Rencontres PrescrireThe "Rencontres Prescrire 2012" will be held in Angers, France on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 May 2012. The event will be conducted in French, but European and international participants are encouraged to attend, and to contribute their experiences and viewpoints.

In order to provide better care, it is often said that it is essential to work together... Always? Why? How?

This will be the theme of the next Rencontres Prescrire, to be held on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 May 2012 in Angers, in France's Loire region.

The subjects to be discussed are many: cooperation between healthcare practitioners and patients; integrated care; group practices; initial or continuing education that crosses the lines between professions; mutual knowledge and understanding;sharing and transmitting information; shared decision-making, communication, and respective responsibilities.

As with the preceding editions, the 2012 event will be a friendly gathering, including: an exhibition of posters presenting participants' work as it relates to the theme; a programme of shared encounters including plenary sessions and workshops.

Devoted to exchanges and sharing, the Rencontres Prescrire 2012 will also be the ideal opportunity to meet the members of the Prescrire team (documentary researchers, editors, technicians, managers, sales staff, etc) as well as the members of the other teams involved in preparing this event.
