The Conference’s scientific committee (SC) highlights key
issues of the conference, building on:
· This conference
is the first of its kind to address matters concerning the performance of
healthcare professionals as one unified and homogenous team, emphasizing the
importance of the teamwork and the importance of working in synergy.
· The first event
to explore practical and effective strategies to implement continuous
professional development (CPD) based on evidence and clinical practices.
· The event will
also address major issues of miscommunication and intercommunication between
the different healthcare professionals.
· One main goal,
over the long term, is to create a 'Central Committee' across all GCC to
monitor and improve the quality of the CPD programs, policies and practices.
This will also be a real tool or catalyst for change.
