The Society for Participatory Medicine is seeking sponsorships to support the its third annual conference, Time 4 Change: Making Participatory Medicine Real. 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. Most support includes a year of corporate membership in the Society.

There’s a lot of talk in health care. How it needs to change, how we need more patient focus, consumerism, mutual respect, etc. SPM wants to turn words into action, so our conference is about more than talk. It’s about inspiration, thinking differently and becoming equipped to make participation as much a part of health care as the stethoscope.

By attending our event, you will learn how to practice Participatory Medicine whether you are a patient, caregiver, or healthcare professional and how to help others practice (and why it matters). Only true participation between caregivers, patients and health care professionals can drive the change we all yearn to see. After all, health care is a team sport!


How Does It Feel?
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.

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, and 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, and hanging out with an amazing group of people all focused on fixing the mess of health care.

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.
