DRIVING BETTER OUTCOMES FOR BETTER VALUE: LAUNCH OF THE EARLY INTERVENTION TOOLKIT

European Parliament, Tuesday 21st November 2017, 13.00-15.00

Supporting those with musculoskeletal conditions return to work, reducing sickness absences and generating eleven euro of return for every one invested, the pioneering Early Intervention Clinic is driving better outcomes for better value for patients, healthcare systems and society.

We invite you to join us at this special event to launch a Toolkit designed to support the pan-European rollout of the principles behind the Early Intervention Clinic. With a healthy and active workforce as one of the key pillars of the Europe 2020 Strategy and the effective management of chronic diseases central to improving the sustainability of healthcare systems across Europe, the launch of this patient-centric Toolkit comes at a crucial time. We look forward to welcoming you to its first live demonstration in November.
