The contribution to debate and the exchange of experience and knowledge is made possible both through the publication of books and in a range of other ways: through the organization of seminars and technical presentations at the headquarters in Barcelona, through participation in conferences where the different stakeholders in health systems interact, and through the teaching of courses in Spain and further afield.
For the 13th consecutive year the CSC is presenting monthly presentations on matters of interest for health systems, on health policy, health service management and public health.
The presentations, free and open to all, take place on one Thursday each month between 14:00 and 16:00 at the CSC headquarters.
Booking confirmations should be sent using the registration link for the appropriate session.
