International Healthcare Timebomb – An Avalanche of Orthopaedics (Thursday 5 June, 15:00)
The EFORT and BOA Presidents will chair a panel of distinguished speakers, comprising leading experts in the international healthcare field as well as a high profile politician, to address the challenges facing healthcare systems and orthopaedics around the world, with a specific focus on the impact of the ageing population and the imminent avalanche of demand for joint replacement surgery. A further G8-style summit is planned for 2015 which will build on this session.
Don’t miss out on the chance to join an audience of high level decision makers from industry as well as senior policy makers, and to have your say when the session is opened up to the floor: how do you think we should tackle the global musculoskeletal challenge that we are all facing?
