Real: something that actually exists, is not imagined, invented or theoretical
Realistic: representing things in a way that is accurate and true to life
There may be broad consensus around the need to co-create health with people and tackle unsustainable and undesirable practices in health care but what does Realistic Medicine mean in practice for people and communities?
Voluntary Health Scotland (VHS) invite you to ‘Get Real’ about health in Scotland and join them in exploring the big themes that the VHS network told us this year’s conference should focus on.
Let’s reality check the progress being made in transforming Prevention, Public Health and Health and Social Care Delivery
How are real people and real communities providing imaginative solutions to complex health issues? And are we paying attention?
How are public, third and community sectors forging more opportunities to work together as leaders, collaborators and innovators?
How can we realistically address the underlying socio-economic causes of health inequalities?
Can we get really get real about health in Scotland?
