#EUHPP #EUworkforce4care

Tuesday 7 April 2020, 11:00 – 12:00



Every year, the European Commission’s Health Policy Platform hosts three Thematic Networks led by health stakeholders. These temporary networks are set up to produce a Joint Statement within a year’s time in a policy area of common interest. Jointly with EHMA, Health First Europe is currently coordinating the thematic network dedicated to “Profiling and training the health care workers of the future”. The goal of our thematic network is to support the European Commission and its Members States in profiling the healthcare workers’ needs for the future of care, identifying and improving their core competencies and pointing out their critical role in the debate about health system reforms, digitalisation and new models of care.

Do not miss the opportunity to participate in our debate online, via WebEx. 

With a focus on:

The Continuity and coordination of care, how do we need to prepare the health care workforce to meet the need of chronic patients with diabetes and cardiovascular conditions?

With key remarks from:

  • European Commission – DG SANTE
  • IDF Europe
  • Heart Failure Policy Network 

The floor will be open for participants to interact, discuss the revisions and provide comments on the presentation and initial results.
