Untapped Talent: Can better testing and data accelerate creativity in learning and societies? 
Hooked on Health Care: Designing Strategies for Better Health
16 Jan - 21 Jan, 2016
 Beyond Green: The Arts as a Catalyst for Sustainability

Faculty:
Richard Taunt  

Abstract:
The dominance of medicine has led most developed economies to invest in healthcare rather than health and there is danger of replication in low and middle-income countries. This is neither good for communities or individuals through their life course, nor is it an effective use of resources, especially with non-communicable diseases continuing to increase, aging populations, and healthcare costs rising faster than GDP in every developed economy. We aim to re-set the agenda for health by building on participants' experience of those factors and cross-sector collaborations which maintain and promote health and wellbeing; developing a sequence for action and investment by health care providers and funders in support of a strategy for health; understanding why we have become hooked on health care and what is needed to reduce our dependence; indicating where providers and governments, from local to national, can act most effectively across domains and levels; and charting the business case for health, identifying where employers, civil society organizations and other stakeholders can best intervene and collaborate.
