4th Conference on European Reference Networks, 21 -22 November, 2018
The 4th Conference on European Reference Networks took place in Brussels, Belgium. The conference which was held 21-22 November – ERNs in action.
24 ERNs were launched in March 2017 and are now operational. The ERNs’ system is a successful story. The complexity and ambition of the model implies a continuous and proactive analysis of the many challenges that ERNs are facing in the current deployment phase and those that will arise in the future.
The objectives of this year’s conference were:
- To inform about the state of play of ERNs as a success of cross-border collaboration and new way of delivering healthcare.
- To mark the momentum that ERNs are entering into a new life cycle: the deployment phase.
- To present the main clinical and organisational outcomes of the networks and lessons learnt.
- To identify the main challenges, potential improvements for the functioning and management of the networks and the way forward of the ERN system.
10 delegates from each ERN were registered for this event.
The conference was broadcasted via web-streaming for those that couldn’t make it.
