March: Wise Healthcare (SDG 3)

March: Wise Healthcare (SDG 3)

Adding Justice To Debate

Call for Papers:

The train has left the station when it comes to changes in healthcare. The classic WHO definition of health as complete wellbeing has recently been challenged. Experts in this topic are proposing a change, with a new emphasis on the ability to adapt and self-manage in the face of social, physical, and emotional challenges. This is a dynamic concept of health, linked to resilience and ability to cope.
As such, we can define Health as the resilience or capacity to cope, and to maintain and restore one’s integrity, equilibrium, and sense of wellbeing in three domains: physical, mental, and social.

So, Wise Healthcare is a progressive philosophy in the delivery of health care that continually expands the services provided. And efforts to improve the quality of medical care across the world will require a major transformation in the way health care is organized, financed, and delivered.
Wise healthcare is meant to think of the patient in terms of a life story. There is increasing interest in a new field of study, narrative medicine, which aims to help health care workers incorporate the life stories of patients, including their own unique value system, into their options for treatment, so that it fits the individual. When information can be shared this way, ethical decisions are made about the patient’s care, particularly at the end of life, when treatment goals can be in harmony with the way the patients have lived their life through the beginning and middle. (More effective healthcare through big data)

It’s the role of WHO to have a smart map of the whole world incorporating a holistic approach of healthcare system in each region and in every country closely related to the history of that country and the belief system as well as food traditions. This could be the grand narrative for a perfect global healthcare system.
WHO should also make daring steps towards rendering the treatment of certain chronic diseases free like what it did with vaccination.
Finally, Wise Healthcare along with the use of "telehealth" technologies raises the issue of Universal Health Insurance that goes beyond the boundaries of single countries. WHO should start a system of Global Insurance.

Main Themes:
1. Future of Healthcare: Effective healthcare through big data.
2. Wise Practices: Best Healthcare Practices.
3. Seeing the Big Picture: Narrative Medicine.
4. Ways to initiate a Wisdom Index & a Wisdom Maturity Model in the field of Healthcare (the new ISO of Healthcare).
5. Aligning Wise Healthcare with SDG 3.
6. Ways to create Wise Leaders in the field of Healthcare (both individuals & institutions).
Abstracts should be no more than 500 words.

World Wisdom Initiative

Humanity has reached a point in its history where the critical success factor is not food or water or innovation and creating wealth, though all of these are very important. I think what we need today and for the better of our future is wisdom.
