Individual health ecosystems are unique and change through the life course. Wellness has many complex components. Factors such as fitness, good nutrition, adherence to medication, sleep, resilience, mental wellness may improve health. Factors such as smoking, stress, excess sugar, mental illness may degrade health. Many other factors may also affect our health (social determinants of health). Once we understand the points of influence we can leverage these to improve health outcomes. But how do we characterize these accurately in order to maximize outcomes and reduce costs? In this presentation Stuart Jackson will examine how to identify and address biases, environments and other influential factors to allow each individual to realize their own journey towards health. A successful medicine adherence campaign will be explained to illustrate these concepts.
