SESSIONS OF THE CONFERENCE




MAINTAINING AND PROMOTING HEALTH OF THE WORKING-AGE POPULATION

Healthcare professionals are playing a key role in exploring the health of the working-age population, as they contribute significantly to the promotion of health, illness management and quality of life in different health care settings, as well as in working and home environment and local community. The success of this also depends heavily on interprofessional collaboration with experts from other scientific disciplines, as the health-related problems of the working-age population are much more complex today than they were in the past. The purpose of the conference section is to present the findings of various healthcare disciplines and other scientific disciplines related to the study of maintain and promoting health of the working age population. In addition, this section also addresses those adult individuals or group of individuals, which are, due to their health status or social circumstances, incapable for work.



NUTRITION AND HYDRATION OF THE WORKING-AGE POPULATION

Nutrition is an important determinant of optimal well-being and work performance and represents a key risk for the development of certain chronic diseases. The section will present current research and challenges recognized in the field of nutrition in modern society. Different aspects of promoting and providing appropriate eating habits and professional recommendations for improvement will be highlighted.


USE OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES IN HEALTH OF THE WORKING-AGE POPULATION

Several authors argue that the possibilities offered by these technologies are underexploited. At the same time the use of ICT raises different ethical dilemmas. The expected goal of this section is to present the state of the art and trends in this field.
