On 29th January 2019, the CKM represented by Professor von Eiff and Ms Susanne Elze visited EHMA in Brussels. Professor von Eiff presented to the EHMA, a range of services of the CKM along with their available forms of support. In addition, organisational and detailed questions about the 35th EHMA Annual Conference (17th – 19th June 2019, Espoo, Finland) were discussed. During the Annual Conference a session about infection management will take place. This session will lead the CKM within the “Health-i-care” project, and has already been initiated by Ms Elze during her 3-month project work at the EHMA in 2018.
On the same day, an event about infection management titled “Infection prophylaxis and infection management” took place in the European Parliament. Professor von Eiff was invited by the EHMA as a speaker to speak about “Effective HAI Prevention – The Theragnostic Dilemma and the Burden of Disease”. The event was organised by the European Network for Safer Healthcare (ENSH). More information about the event and the lecture by Professor von Eiff can be found here
