On 25 April, the Johanniter branch in Tirol celebrated its foundation 40 years ago with the symposium "Rescue, Nursing and Social Work 4.0" which gave an exciting outlook on the future in the field of health and social care.

The first Future Symposium of the Johanniter lived up to its name - with well-known speakers, a diverse range of topics and an interdisciplinary specialist audience.

More than 170 conference participants did not want to miss the lectures of the internationally recognized keynote speaker Matthias Horx, Univ.-Prof. Michael Baubin and Jos de Blok as well as the Ringlectures and Best Practices presentations on various projects.

Among the guests of honor were the President of Johanniter Austria and Johanniter International DI Johannes Bucher, Federal Managing Director Dr. Robert Brandstetter, as well as numerous representatives of the Tyrolean rescue, nursing and care facilities.

Franz Bittersam, Managing Director of Johanniter Tirol, evaluated this diversity of participants “as a good sign for a functioning cooperation of all rescue and care organizations in Tyrol" and expressed his thanks.
