Towards an 'active welfare'

The era of ‘passive’ welfare is close to an end, as we can see in almost all countries, both in the west and elsewhere, and while thermal medicine enjoys modern consolidated and undisputed scientific validation, it needs to confront with the strict requirements of state budgets. An accurate strategy provides for the creation of ‘thermal health clusters’ in predefined regions, where observational studies can be carried out on the lifestyles of populations and on the relevant changes.

ACTIVE THERMALISM - The individual at the heart of care and as a driver of change

April 8, 2017 - European Meeting at Riolo Terme (Italy)

What is the psycho-physical and behavioural profile of the typical patient/user of thermal establishments? What possible areas for contact and collaboration exist between thermal centres and the associations for the protection of patients/users? What input can thermal care provide to the welfare offering?

The above questions will be addressed at the European meeting organized by EAPTC, in cooperation with Terme di Riolo to analyze the role of patients/users of thermal care and help ascertain whether and how a patient/userfocused approach can trigger innovation and the change of therapeutic resources.
