As medicine, healthcare, and public health ‘recombobulate’ amidst changes in systems, a broader array of health professionals and institutions increasingly share accountability for population health outcomes. This necessitates adaptive change in the way that public health conducts business, and requires greater shared vision, intersectoral collaboration, and interdisciplinary practice. The presenter will serve as facilitator of a panel of leading public health experts representing academic programs, public health practice, primary care and non-profit organizations who will explore some of the invited and uninvited opportunities in (re)uniting primary care and public health for stronger systems and greater health.

Learning Areas:

Provision of health care to the public
Public health or related public policy
Systems thinking models (conceptual and theoretical models), applications related to public health

Learning Objectives:
Describe based on observation and experience at least 2 effective methods of facilitation demonstrated in the session. Formulate and describe at least three complex issues in the recombobulation of health systems in terms that both medicine and public health professionals can understand.
