Event Title

Recommendations of the Lancet Report 2011

Location

AKU Auditorium

Start Date

27-1-2013 1:30 PM

Abstract

The Lancet Commission, which consisted of 20 professional and academic leaders from diverse countries, came together to develop a shared vision and a common strategy for postsecondary education in medicine, nursing, and public health that reaches beyond the confines of national borders and the silos of individual professions. The Commission adopted a global outlook, a multi-professional perspective, and a systems approach.

This comprehensive framework considers the connections between education and health systems. It is centered on people as co-producers and as drivers of needs and demands in both systems. By interaction through the labour market, the provision of educational services generates the supply of an educated workforce to meet the demand for professionals to work in the health system. To have a positive effect on health outcomes, the professional education subsystem must design new instructional and institutional strategies.

This talk will focus on the recommendations of the Lancet Commission Report 2011and how to take it forward.
