Learning and collaboration
The global issues facing modern healthcare are driving the need for innovative solutions that ensure equitable access to healthcare for children and young people in urban spaces.
The healthcare sector is often infatuated with innovation. However, rarely are lessons learned, the right people brought together, or positive and tested solutions shared. When organisations and professionals fail to collaborate, they can miss out on the tremendous power of imitation - copying existing approaches that have been proven to work, and either scaling them up to work at a national level or scaling them down to adapt for local use in a new country or region.
The kind of transformation that healthcare needs to undergo will only be possible through partnership and a shift of power towards the person. Governments, providers, NGOs, and community workers need to get better at communicating, integrating, and working collaboratively. Similarly, learning and collaboration isn’t just for professionals, the incorporation of person preferences is a leading factor in higher-value healthcare.
