Ukrainian and Russian medical travelers have been caught up in the crisis, and in the geo-political responses.

Patients and families who had travelled for necessary medical care now find themselves between their destinations and their homes. And those who had planned travel for health reasons now find themselves in limbo.

Flows of patients from these two countries will be disrupted for some time to come, disrupting services offered by international patient departments around the world.

The panelists:

  • Patricia Montealegre, International Patient Services at Sant Joan de Deu Children’s Hospital Barcelona Spain
  • Dr. Sinan Aran, Director International Program and Florence Nightingale Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey
  • Christian Fadi El-Khouri, MESC International Patient Service, Hamburg Germany
  • Talip Kurumehmet, International Patient Services Department, Medipol Health Group, Turkey

Facilitated by Elizabeth Ziemba of Medical Tourism Training and Irving Stackpole, Stackpole & Associates.

This panel discussion covered the issues for medical travelers and their families, and offered insights and suggestions based on personal practical experience.
