The Great Personalised Medicine Debate

Health
Date: Tuesday, 07 November 2017 18:00 - 20:00

Venue: Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the EU, Brussels  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

Personalized medicine holds many promises to radically change health care by using the latest omics technologies and medical record data to allow medical professionals to tailor therapeutic strategies to each individual patient.

By moving away from the one-size-fits-all approach, personalized medicine aims to deliver the right preventative or therapeutic intervention to the right patient at the right time as well as decrease costs for the health care system by overcoming the costly – and sometimes fatal – trial-and-error method.

However, translating the concept of personalized healthcare into reality means addressing significant barriers and challenges, from patient engagement to evidence generation and addressing questions of data ownership and privacy – to name but a few. Above all, as personalized medicine is gathering momentum and moving from the lab to the hospitals, the main question to be answered is how it can allow Europe’s health care systems to become more sustainable and contribute to a better health for all Europeans.

Join POLITICO for a very lively Oxford-style debate on the motion: ‘This House believes that personalized medicines is the key to sustainable health care‘.
