DTI –Policymaker Brigitte Schytte[example chosen part 06:05-06:50 “you realise that you can come up with beautiful solutions, but in the end if you don’t manage the micro management and the individual side, and the actual patient, you need to manage that area and then suddenly you have a split where you have the global world and the individual private word and actually the private home. And for that you need to be very humble, and you need to understand how can you impact this patient’s life in their own home, in their own being, and make them understand and take ownership of their own situation about their own illness and if you can mobilise all of this, you will have a new way of doing healthcare“]
