Karolinska University Hospital is organising an event with panel debates centred around the challenges in the EU healthcare agenda. Peter Gocke, will be representing EUHA and will contribute to the discussion on cross-border healthcare and the EU proposals to extend the scope of e-Health cross-border services to additional cases on the perspective of international patients.
Providing high-quality care is especially challenging for rare diseases. For this reason, EUHA joins the global awareness-raising campaign, Rare Disease Day, to show solidarity with the rare disease community.
The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and EUHA will co-host the event “Ready for the next crisis – Building resilient healthcare systems in Europe”. Panellists from different European organisations, including EUHA, will discuss the implications of a health system reform to build resilient healthcare systems.
As an alliance of 10 leading university hospitals, EUHA is an important stakeholder in promoting excellence and innovation in healthcare education and research. For this reason, EUHA participated as a key panellist at the session on “Future Opportunities in Research Collaboration in the Context of the European Universities Alliance” organised by Circle U.
EUHA recently adopted the Nursing Mission Statement, which advocates for nursing as an attractive profession and academic discipline. The statement, developed by the Nursing Network, will support EUHA in developing unique expertise to improve the quality of nursing care, increase the profession’s attractiveness, encourage staff retention, and help drive the development of nursing careers in Europe.
EUHA is proud that Peter Gocke (Charité) joined the roundtable on “Patient-centred partnerships: bringing the European Health Data Space to life” at the H2O-organised event. As the EUHA Digital Health and Data Network coordinator, Peter Gocke highlighted the importance of data sharing to provide high-quality care and research and the recent publication of a EUHA Statement on the European Health Data Space.
EUHA has released a consensus standpoint, written up by the Digital Health and Data Network (DHDN) and the Policy Working Group, on the essential aspects of the European Health Data Space (EHDS). All EUHA members joined the statement that emphasises how EUHA hospitals are ready to help unlock the potential of the EHDS.
EUHA was invited to join the session “Towards a European Health Union” in the Risk Management Forum, which took place in Arezzo towards the end of November. The Steering Committee member from UZ Leuven, Johan Van Eldere, represented EUHA and shared some joint ongoing initiatives within EUHA as success stories of European collaboration, relevant to advance towards a European Health Union.
By signing the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment, EUHA joins a coalition of like-minded organisations that are committed to reforming the way research is assessed and who recognise the variety of activities that maximise the quality of research.
The EUHA Rare Diseases & European Reference Networks (RD & ERNs) Network met in Paris on the 15th and 16th of November. The network discussed the minimum set of requirements to ensure a proper transition from paediatric to adult healthcare for rare disease patients, explored the possibilities for implementing exchanges and emphasised the role of the network to support transversal work on rare diseases in our hospitals, collaboration with ERNs, exploring potential synergies and avoiding parallel work.
