The ideology of healthcare reform in Ukraine in the new episode of the podcast “Tangible med education”


So, we are starting the second season of the “Tangible med education” podcast!

We are sure you missed our informative, provocative, and tangible conversations! So let’s not be verbose —>

In the first episode, the podcast host Mychailo Wynnyckyj, sociologist, trainer, and lecturer at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, focuses on the topic of healthcare reform and other important issues with Pavlo Kovtoniuk, co-founder of the Ukrainian Healthcare Center (UHC), former Deputy Minister of Health:

  • who is the Ukrainian Healthcare Center, and what the think tank team focuses on,
  • escape to the space of dignity: what was the ideology of healthcare reform,
  • boring procedural safety in healthcare to ensure predictability for patients,
  • the middle class of good professionals: what kind of Ukrainian doctors are they,
  • how to implement healthcare reform without a medical degree,
  • the stages of medical development: from the factory to horizontal creative format,
  • building our healthcare system: not idealizing Western Europe, but not rejecting its value foundation,
  • why medical education is essential: from knowledge to unwritten rules,
  • what changes in the healthcare system are needed.

At the end of the episode, Matviy Khrenov, in the section “What have you read there?!” or “Why do I need those books? I read the orders!” recommends Niall Ferguson’s book Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe. The text primarily deals with the coronavirus and emphasizes the lessons we have learned from this crisis. The author also analyzes other epidemics dating back to ancient Rome and draws parallels. If you are interested in learning about how humanity responds to crises and whether they can be predicted at all, this book is for you —>

We also recommend listening to the podcast by Pavlo Kovtoniuk and Diana Rusniak on Radio Podil —>
