Preventing Cross Border Transmission of Malaria

In recent years, large population movements across countries in many continents have affected control measures and contributed to the spread of malaria. Such spread presents significant health challenges by introducing the infection to areas without a history of infection, re-introducing it to areas that achieved infection control or eradication, and by importing drug resistant malaria strains. This Expert Panel addresses the need for cross border collaboration, training and operational research to control the spread of malaria. Learn more.

Clincally Integrated Supply Chains

When a supply chain system is functioning well, it is a hospital’s silent partner. Unfortunately, poorly performing supply chains are all too common, especially in low and middle income countries. Since many argue that clinicians should take an active role in the decision-making related to their organization’s supply chain practices, this Expert Panel discusses strategies for building clinically integrated supply chains.

We've hosted more than 50 different Expert Panels highlighting key issues experienced in the field. Learn more.

Understanding the Role of Technology in Patient-Provider Relationships

As the health care industry becomes more and more reliant on technology, some worry that the patient-provider relationship will be lost altogether. Others fear that not all technological innovations are created to solve the problems at hand. This Expert Panel explores the role technology plays in the patient-provider relationship, and addresses how this technology is reshaping communication between patients and providers. Learn more.

Initiating End-of-Life Care Conversations

End-of-life care is the term used to describe the support and medical care given during the time surrounding death. The care provided does not happen just in the moments before breathing finally stops and a heart ceases to beat. Rather, an individual may be living, and dying, with one or more chronic illnesses and require care for days, weeks, and sometimes even months. Personal preference, family, culture, faith and economics all intersect in this journey. This Expert Panel examines best practices for initiating conversations about end-of-life care. Learn more.
