The Society for Participatory Medicine is seeking sponsorships to support the its second annual conference. Join the growing list of partners and supporters who have already signed up to help us transform the culture of patient care. We have opportunities to support the conference and to support a scholarship program to defray the costs of travel. Support also includes a year of corporate membership in the Society.

What is it?
#SPM2018 is a conference unlike any others. The focus isn’t just a bunch of talking heads, it’s groups of heads coming together to improve health care experiences. After all, at least two heads are better than one! A patient, a caregiver, a physician, a nurse all need to have equal parts in someone’s care. When they do is when the magic happens.

How it feels?
Different than every other conference. Yes, there are presentations, yes, there are workshops, but they are focused on progress and change from the people who’ve collaborated to drive change and push for progress. This does not feel like the healthcare industry echo chamber. There might even be some surprises involved. As they say, expect the unexpected.

It also feels human. As people, we know that healthcare is extremely emotional. It will make you laugh, cry, love, be angry, etc. Other than the angry piece, we want our event to make you feel what health care does. (And if you do get angry, good; let’s channel it towards a fix!) That means laughing at the absurdities, crying at the frustrations, and using all of that emotional energy as inspiration to drive change and to change the conversation.

Why even put on an event?
Participatory medicine (PM) is about collaboration, about people from different backgrounds, different expertise, and different orientations working together to solve health care problems. No god complexes allowed here! So, to convey that, we felt we needed people in a room together. We need everyone to laugh together, cry together, get angry together, and to want to do something about it.

So what does the day look like?
The morning is filled with inspiration from people who’ve partnered with others to make change, the true “Participatory Medicine Heroes.” People who understand the value of diversity in helping people get better. The afternoon is your turn to get involved, for you to become a Participatory Medicine Hero. You will be collaborating with people to develop answers to health care questions. Don’t worry, we won’t throw you out there on your own. We will have people to help stimulate your emotions and creativity.
