  • It was highly educational and fun at the same time. Experts were very enthusiastic.
  • Share knowledge and discuss very interesting topics with European experts – bring knowledge from a local to a international level
  • Workshops, very good feedback from experts and a friendly attitude
  • Friendly environment, hands-on workshops, not too much theoretical presentations

  • Great pedagogic strategy! Thank you for breaking the rules 🙂 Clinical case scenarios where very useful, the brainstorming, teambuilding and decision-making training were the best of it.
  • We are already putting up some new organisation in my ER, applying some pieces of advice we got from the sessions.
  • Practical approach, well explained modules, very good scenarios.
  • No negative aspects. Maybe more time in the simulation
