During EuroPCR 2017 in Paris, we invited Stephen Oesterle and Jens Deerberg-Wittram to join us at “PCR Presidents & Friends Dinner”, and to speak to the guests about the future of our profession and healthcare in general. The presentation and provocative discussion that followed challenged many of our ideas and inspired an exchange and dialogue which we believe needs to be expanded upon and continued by the larger community. Following is a summary and reflection on this evening.
For the biographies of the two invited speakers, please see the appendices following this editorial (Appendix 1, Appendix 2).
