Part A: Power of connections enabling resilient performance: peer-to-peer interactions of peritoneal dialysis patients

Health care teams, organizations, or networks are complex adaptive systems which are able to function resiliently in changing environments with a variety of perturbations and constraints. Little is known about how individual members interact and how system performance as a whole goes well. The session will provide new insights into potentials of patients’ peer-to-peer interactions for empowering individual patients and nurturing resilience in health care system.

After this session, participants will be able to:

  1. See patient care with chronic illness as dynamic life-long journey

  2. Understand potentials of peer-to-peer interactions among patients for their empowerment

  3. Recognise an important role of health care professionals in constructing a platform for peer-to-peer networking
