Helping patients to Make an Informed DecisionWith the aim of providing patient-centric, comprehensive, and holistic care, the Hospital will hold a primary care conference titled “Care Integration –A Vision to the Future” in the beautiful settings of the Hong Kong Maritime Museum at 2- 8pm on 6 May 2017.
Dr Hans Schrader, Executive Medical Director of the Matilda International Hospital added, “We trust that primary care must be based on the principle of preventive, personal, predictive and participative medicine. Primary care physicians must be able to continuously acquire new knowledge and, at the same time, take the lead to coach patients to get access to evidence based and meaningful resources such as online expert knowledge and access to specialist services.”
