Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:
The healthcare industry worldwide continues to face challenges and obstacles with providing quality healthcare and patient outcomes with continuing budgetary and resource challenges. Healthcare delivery is focusing more on prevention at the community level to meet these challenges. Scandinavian countries, including Norway, have by necessity developed a healthcare delivery model combining population-based public health principles and prevention with clinical medicine due to their isolated locale and limited resources. Through professional exchanges with in-country practitioners, this program explores Scandinavia’s commitment to primary care as key to improving population health, how to effectively deal with the aging population while keeping rising healthcare costs down, and how to keep up with and utilize the newest technology. By design, this program offers opportunities for medical professionals to compare and contrast cultural perspectives with current best practices in their own professional setting. During this program, we will be looking at varied practice models from hospital and clinics. Each have a unique approach; however, we all desire the same outcome.

Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:
• Scandinavian Healthcare System: History, Challenges & Conquests
• Updates & Scandinavian Perspectives in Dentistry
• Community Healthcare Delivery: From Prenatal to Palliative Care
• Oral Health Promotion and Disease Prevention
• Generational & Gender Perspectives in Medical Care
• Travel Medicine Updates & Medicine at Sea
