    Our 2016 conference theme is the ‘Power of Partnership’. Partnership working is about developing inclusive, mutually beneficial relationships across a range of sectors that improve the quality of health information and support, and the experience of care for patients and the public.

    PIF’s diverse membership, and network, means that our Annual Conference attracts individuals from a range of organisations, from around the UK – including the NHS, voluntary, academic, freelance, pharmaceutical and commercial sectors. Attending the conference will provide you with a great opportunity to make connections and create, and discover, new partnerships to drive your work and projects forwards.

    The interactive and participatory style of the conference will include:

    • Case studies on targeted information for hard to reach groups, developing digital approaches for self-management, and much more, will allow you to learn from a range of projects that have involved partnership working.
    • ‘Question Time’ style Keynote Conversations with panelists from a range of sectors, across the UK, will enable you to take part in the discussions and contribute your views.  See videos of the conversations here: Empowering patients through engagement and involvement and Championing health information and valuing the professionals who work in the sector
