Claude Bursztejn: "Show the world what we are doing in ESCAP"

Documenting Dublin

ESCAP's Dublin Congress can now be re-experienced online. Presentations and abstracts of all keynote speakers, symposia and more are now available on this website. Inspired by board member professor Claude Bursztejn, responsible for ESCAP's care/clinical division, this is a first step towards systematic documentation of the knowledge exchanged during ESCAP conferences. Simply click on the subject to find all content.

portrait of professor Claude BursztejnProfessor Bursztejn: "We should show the world what we are doing in ESCAP and begin – for example – with publishing proper congress summaries. An after-congress overview will learn us a lot, such as the enormous differences in clinical practice that still exist between ESCAP member countries.” Bursztejn proposed to gather existing studies and information and making these available through the ESCAP website.
