Second International Conference on Systems and Complexity in Health
November 9 and 10, 2016
The 2nd International Conference on Systems and Complexity in Health will be held on November 9 and 10 at the Billings Clinic in Billings, Montana. The conference theme is Putting Systems and Complexity Sciences into Practice - Sharing the Experience.
We seek all engaged in the physiological, social, environmental, clinical, prevention, educational, organizational, finance and policy domains to share their experiences and build new relationships at this conference. We aim to provide a forum where learning is fostered, connections across disciplines are encouraged, and new approaches to complexity and systems-inspired healthcare, education and leadership are explored.
The conference will be highly interactive and employ processes to encourage creative, interdisciplinary exchange throughout plenary, interactive sessions, oral and poster presentations. Participants will explore their experiences Putting Systems and Complexity Sciences into Practice and do so in a healthcare organization with a vibrant complexity science learning community. Interspersed throughout the conference will be multiple opportunities to see first hand the many complexity-inspired innovations in place at Billings Clinic and talk with staff members who brought them to life.
Billings Clinic, the site of the 2016 conference, is known internationally for its work to employ systems and complexity science concepts to advance patient care, pioneer new improvement methods, and enhance creativity.
