Hacking Health St. John's October 2017 Cafe

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:00-8:00pm
Location: Room 1M102, Medical Education Centre, Faculty of Medicine, MUN


Do you have an interest in Healthcare? Join Hacking Health St. John's for our Café on Wednesday, October 18th at the Faculty of Medicine. 

At this Café, hosted in partnership with NL Support, join a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals, hackers, programmers, designers, researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators as we challenge participants to think about the following priority themes:

1. Mental health and addictions ("Not enough is being done to help people with mental health problems and addictions")

2. Wait times ("I have to wait too long for medical care and I have trouble getting medical care when I need it")

3. Community support and services ("There are not enough community services and supports to help me after I leave the hospital or to make sure I can stay in my home for longer instead of going to a care home" and "I don't know which programs and services are available to me or when and how I can use them or my doctor or nurse doesn't know which services they can send me to)

4. Primary health care ("I have to see a different family doctor every time or my doctor or nurse doesn't seem to know my medical history")
