Transfusion / Blood Quality Management system (B-QM) | Conference | 21 April 2020 to 23 April 2020 | Strasbourg, France
The year 2020 will mark 10 years of successful collaboration between the European Union and the EDQM in the field of blood, 10 years in which scientific, regulatory, societal, economic and other transversal domains have evolved rapidly. European Blood Establishments (BEs) are required to continuously adapt their Quality Systems (QSs) in light of new developments in these domains, while pursuing the public health objective of ensuring continuity of blood supplies.
Transplantation / Public awareness | Campaigns | 10 October 2020 | Warsaw, Poland
Every year, European countries celebrate European Organ Donation Day (EODD). The idea behind this Day, initiated by the Council of Europe, is to encourage debate and provide information on organ, tissues and cells donation and transplantation, and legal and medical measures so that every European can decide about donation and make their wishes known to their family. Organ, tissues and cells transplantation is one of the great medical success stories of modern times and is the only life-saving treatment for end-stage organ failure in many conditions.
