50th AESGP Annual Meeting and 18th WSMI General Assembly, London 4-5 June 2014

Around 450 delegates of industry, regulatory and academic backgrounds met for a two-day conference, in London, England, to discuss the future of Self-Care. Entitled ‘Self-Care, the Gold Standard in Healthcare’, the conference discussed a vast number of subjects related to self-care, such as the growing recognition of the important role of self-care in the global healthcare landscape and the unprecedented interest of patients and consumers in their own healthcare and willingness to become active participants. This is true for patients and consumers all over the world, not least in the emerging markets. The conference report can be downloaded from below:
