EUROGIP discussions 2020 “Preventing occupational risks in the healthcare sector for the dependent elderly”
IMPORTANT – POSTPONEMENT OF THE EUROGIP DISCUSSIONS OF 12 MARCH 2020
Considering the announced evolution of the Covid-19 epidemic in France, we are forced to postpone the EUROGIP Discussions of 12 March 2020 to a later date.
This decision, taken on the basis of the precautionary principle and in the light of the various recommendations (WHO, ECDC, national health authorities), was particularly necessary for our 2020 edition.
Indeed, next week our conference was to bring together participants from all regions of France and speakers from many European countries (Italy, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg) which, like France, are affected by Covid-19.
In addition, beyond our general missions related to health and safety at work, this meeting focuses on “the prevention of occupational risks in the healthcare sector for the dependent elderly”.
Thus, it is particularly aimed at actors in public, private and associative healthcare institutions in direct contact with patients/residents who are by definition vulnerable and for whom no risk of propagation should be taken.
In consultation with the EUROGIP Governing Board, our partners and the speakers, we will do our utmost to propose a new date for a meeting on this particularly topical issue.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.
