Thematic Network on Medical Training and Professional Development for Patient Safety

The International Network for Health Workforce Education is a member of the EU's Health Policy Forum and is involved in the "Thematic Network on Medical Training and Professional Development for Patient Safety". The leads for this Thematic Network have asked for comments from stakeholders regarding the aims and objectives of the group and for assistance in drafting a joint statement of intent. The Thematic Network leads have proposed three main aims to be reflected in the draft joint statement as its major outcome: how to promote evidence-based medicine through education; how education and mutual recognition of qualifications can enhance mobility of health professionals; and the harmonisation of educational programmes and medical school curricula in the EU. You can read more about these three areas and the joint statement of intent on our Social Network. If you have any comments, additions or would like to become involved further in the Thematic Network then please email: david.smith@inhwe.org
