On 30 November 2022 PEERS participated in the workshop “Better Practice Guide and Standardisation for all – get involved!” organised by the NO-FEAR project in the Dutch city of Delft.
Hosted by the Royal Netherlands Standardisation Institute (NEN), the workshop was attended by practitioners working across industry, academia, and policy. In disaster medicine, clear and evidence-based standardisation is of pivotal importance to ensuring effectiveness and innovation as new players enter the market. Nevertheless, medical practitioners frequently express their frustrations when it comes to speak about standards. The workshop aimed to break down some of these barriers, encouraging participants to get involved in stardardisation to produce new effective practitioner-driven standards.
Following some introductory background on standardisation and examples about how it fits the real life through selected case studies on e.g., Personal Protective Equipment, Prof. William Hynes (KPMG Future Analytics) presented PEERS as project coordinator.
