From 19 to 21 February, the JOIN Clinical working group met in Vienna to finalise the drafting of a European-wide First Aid manual. Delegates from Austria, Cyprus, England, Finland, Germany and Italy came together in the Austrian capital while our expert from Jerusalem attended the meeting via video call.
During the first two days, the group reviewed the content of the draft that has been compiled, discussed and refined for the last nine months. As a result, JOIN medical doctors found an agreement on the full package.
During the third day, the group reviewed again the draft, making further detailed amendments. Furthermore, the JOIN Office shortly presented the European SecureHospitals project and indicated ways of possibly involving St John hospitals.
The next meeting of the Clinical working group will be held in Zurich on 9-10 May, just before the JOIN AGM 2019.
