Registration is free but required.
This Global Patient Perspectives Roundtable—focused on Telehealth/Telemedicine and Shared Decision-Making—is the first in a series of four roundtables sponsored by GSK. These topics are relevant to patient care and outcomes, options, and autonomy and are especially significant in the backdrop of COVID-19 and of global discussions of health equity. Participating in this active exchange of information across populations, specialties, and regions, attendees will enhance their understanding of these important topics and be more empowered to exercise their rights and options related to each.
