From 6 to 8 June, the JOIN Clinical working group came together in Lignano, Italy, just before the AGM 2018. The meeting included participation of eleven delegates from Austria, Cyprus, England, Hungary, Italy and the JOIN Office. Moreover, medical doctors from Germany and Jerusalem joined us online.

The aim of the meeting was to explore the possibility of drafting a common European-wide First Aid Manual. After three days of intensive work with discussions on each topic related to first aid, St John medical doctors agreed on the structure (chapters and headings) and the basic content of the future manual. It would take the form of an open e-resource with possibility to be downloaded, translated and printed. The JOIN Clinical group would regularly update its content in the future.
The next face-to-face meeting will take place in October 2018 in Brussels. The meeting will focus on the finalisation of a first draft of the manual. The production of an app and a booklet (shorter version) will also be discussed.
