The Biennial International Neuman Systems Model Symposium will be organized in Utrecht, The Netherlands on June 16, 2017.
The Neuman Systems Model is especially suited to foster Multi-professional and inter-disciplinary collaboration which is necessary for the global need to design person-centered, integrated care.
The model provides a well-founded method to increase the ability to cope with adverse events in life and combines prevention theory with system orientation.
This creates shared values, a shared language and shared goals across disciplines and cultures.
This symposium is a wonderful opportunity to meet participants from different countries and professional from practice, education, research and policy.
Discussion and interactive workshops give shape to the central theme of this symposium: Connecting minds, spirits and cultures.
