Vaccines and new frontiers of life

In a world where emerging diseases continually threaten our global health, a new chapter is being written in the history of vaccines. The parallel session, “Vaccines and New Frontiers of Life,” explores the intricate interaction between science, innovation, and public health as we face unprecedented challenges. This parallel session delves into the rapid development of vaccines to combat the ever-evolving landscape of infectious diseases. From the groundbreaking mRNA technology utilized in COVID-19 vaccines to the tireless efforts of researchers and healthcare professionals on the front lines, we face the extraordinary endeavors of our time. However, with these breakthroughs comes controversy. “Vaccines and New Frontiers of Life” aims to debate the skepticism and misinformation surrounding vaccines, highlighting the importance of science-based decision-making and the battle against vaccine hesitancy. It highlights the voices of experts dedicated to dispelling myths and ensuring the public understands the significance of vaccination in safeguarding our collective well-being. As the world grapples with the ongoing challenges of emerging diseases, this session takes viewers on a journey through the triumphs, trials, and triumphs again in the realm of vaccines. It invites all the participants to reflect on vaccines’ critical role in our modern society and underscores the need for global cooperation in the face of these relentless threats. In this parallel session of the Global Heal Forum, we would like to explore the nexus between science, ethics, and public health, contributing to a poignant reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the relentless pursuit of solutions to safeguard our future in an ever-changing world.

As novas fronteiras da Medicina Laboratorial

O futuro da medicina laboratorial já começou e assenta em significativos avanços tecnológicos que nos permitem ultrapassar novas fronteiras no domínio do diagnóstico. A genómica é o principal suporte do novo paradigma médico conhecido como Medicina de Precisão ou Medicina Personalizada, em que a definição do diagnóstico molecular de cada doente determina a terapêutica específica e individualizada para cada um. A oncogenómica, disciplina fundamental para o diagnóstico e tratamento de doenças oncológicas hereditárias ou adquiridas, é uma das áreas que mais beneficia e beneficiará deste avanço laboratorial.

Da mesma forma, a proteómica abriu novas fronteiras no diagnóstico laboratorial da Doença de Alzheimer (DA) no sangue periférico, numa fase muito precoce, confirmando as mais ligeiras suspeitas clínicas, mesmo quando outro tipo de exames nada revela ou é demasiado invasivo. Considerando a possibilidade da eficácia de novos medicamentos, já existentes ou em desenvolvimento, actuarem nas fases muito iniciais desta forma de demência, impedindo a sua evolução, urge a utilização de novos testes que permitam, no sangue periférico, medir determinadas proteínas, com altíssima sensibilidade e especificidade fazendo precocemente o diagnóstico da DA permitindo atuar eficazmente nesta doença, ultrapassando uma nova fronteira não só na medicina laboratorial mas, mais especificamente, na neurologia.

Data Science e a Interoperabilidade dos Dados

Data Science e interoperabilidade cobrem o cerne do desenvolvimento de tecnologia para a saúde. É a estrada de informação que abre caminho para a inovação. Os dados das organizações de saúde podem ajudar a melhorar o diagnóstico, novos tratamentos, atendimento ao paciente e serviços gerais. Iremos discutir em que ponto estamos nos dias de hoje e como podemos acelerar a adoção de tecnologia suportada por data science e pela interoperabilidade.

Cuidados Domiciliários: Novos Desafios e Oportunidades

Levar os cuidados de saúde a casa permite melhorar a experiência do cliente em termos do conforto pessoal, mas também no plano da segurança e da qualidade clínica, designadamente pela redução de eventos adversos evitáveis.

A hospitalização domiciliária à escala do SNS português está a revelar-se uma resposta essencial para a redução da demora média hospitalar, permitindo libertar meios e recursos que impulsionam a melhoria do acesso e dos tempos de resposta.

Os cuidados em casa constituem uma oportunidade de mercado substancial para os diferentes operadores dos setores público, privado e social, e uma excelente iniciativa para a criação de maior valor para todos os stakeholders do setor.

Fórum dos CEO

Esta sessão paralela visa melhorar a colaboração entre os stakeholders no sistema de saúde, incluindo entidades oficiais, prestadores de cuidados de saúde, indústria e cidadãos questão crucial para melhorar o acesso e a qualidade dos cuidados. O principal objetivo é estabelecer canais de comunicação entre todas as partes interessadas para facilitar a partilha de informações e a colaboração. Nesta sessão, procura-se uma visão partilhada que defina objetivos comuns para o sistema de saúde. Esses objetivos devem ter como prioridades o acesso, a eficiência e a qualidade dos cuidados para todos os cidadãos. O Forum discutirá a importância do alinhamento de políticas, regulamentos e incentivos com o objetivo geral de melhorar o acesso e a qualidade dos cuidados de saúde através da promoção de políticas que promovam a inovação e a eficiência. Este Fórum debaterá, igualmente, a importância da interoperabilidade e da partilha de dados entre prestadores de cuidados de saúde, entidades pagadoras e parceiros da indústria permitindo uma compreensão mais abrangente das necessidades dos cidadãos e dos resultados dos cuidados de saúde. O debate também deverá ser centrado na adoção de tecnologias de saúde, como a saúde digital para melhorar a coordenação e a acessibilidade dos cuidados. Também será discutida a importância da implementação de incentivos baseados no desempenho para que os prestadores de cuidados de saúde e as organizações promovam cuidados de saúde de alta qualidade e melhores resultados para os utentes. Em síntese, esta sessão paralela tem como objetivo incentivar os esforços de parceria que se concentram na inovação e na melhoria dos cuidados de saúde, uma vez que melhorar a colaboração entre as partes interessadas no sistema de saúde é um processo contínuo que requer compromisso, flexibilidade e uma abordagem centrada no cidadão.

Architecture, Health and Wellness

As stated by the United Nations, it is obvious that our future is urban and, accordingly, for the World Health Organization that health should be prioritized in urban and territorial planning, in order to incorporate it into decision-making and thus favouring “age-friendly cities”. For the next generation of elders who wish to keep participating actively in society, shared and social spaces are crucial for both physical and mental health. Sharing and generational diversity are essential components for wellbeing, underscoring the psychosocial advantages of the community dimension. With a wide variety of collective, self-organized and participatory forms of housing, the concept of collaborative housing encompasses many forms of self-organized housing projects, created with a collective effort, in which residents have access to generous shared spaces with a variety of uses as compensation for a minimal amount of private space. The new Basic Housing Law in Portugal already provides for collaborative housing as a form of access to permanent housing, which will certainly arouse great interest to all those concerned with Architecture, Health and Wellness.
