PROCESS

Panel discussions will be moderated in such a way as to encourage expert opinion, audience participation and robust critical appaisal of the issues under discussion. Panelists will in each case bring a wealth of industry experience and sector-related expertise to the discussion. Each discussion will be preceded by two brief presentations from selected members of the panel. Discussants will have the opportunity to respond interactively to viewpoints espoused by fellow participants at various stages during the discussion. A broadly representative audience of healthcare sector stakeholders is expected to 'deepen' the discussion by means of incisive questioning and further introduction of reasoned arguments and policy expectations relevant to the future of healthcare in the region.
