23 June 2014 in Brussels
European Reference Networks
Organised by DG SANCO
DG SANCO is organising a conference on European Reference
Networks on 23rd of June in Brussels which will bring together highly
specialised healthcare providers, experts, national authorities,
decision–makers, and independent bodies with experience in the
assessment and evaluation of healthcare providers.
The aim of the conference is to discuss the state of play on the organisation of highly specialised networks and their members across the EU and to look into the next steps of the deployment process, in preparation for the forthcoming call for European Reference Networks in 2015.
Establishing European Reference Networks, in accordance with Directive 2011/24/EU on the application of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare, of highly specialised healthcare providers represents a clear added value for the EU and will help to provide affordable, high-quality and cost-effective healthcare to patients with conditions requiring a particular concentration of resources or expertise, and to improve these patients' access to the best possible expertise and care available in the EU for their condition.
More information will come shortly, but be sure to block your agendas today!
We look forward to seeing you in Brussels. Further details, including conference registration instructions, will follow soon. Feel free to contact CECOFORMA who is organising this conference on behalf of DG SANCO – Directorate-General for Health and Consumers.
