As media partner for the event, Health Europa highlights the CleanMed Europe 2018 (CME18) conference in Nijmegen, Netherlands, and how it aims to promote sustainability in healthcare.

Taking place on 10-12 October 2018, the CleanMed Europe 2018 conference is an event where professionals from around Europe and the rest of the world share problems, solutions and innovations around the topic of sustainability in healthcare.

The conference, hosted by leading academic centre for patient care, education and research, Radboud University Medical Center, will showcase cutting-edge practices in sustainable healthcare.

Who will be speaking at the CleanMed Europe 2018 conference?

It was recently announced that the keynote speaker for the event will be CEO of Emeritus of Gundersen Health System, paediatrician and author on leadership, Dr Jeff Thompson.

During Thompson’s tenure, Gundersen Health System developed an energy programme that decreased greenhouse gases by 95% and hazardous pharmaceutical waste by 1,700%. This resulted in the reduction of the cost of care, as well as the improvement of the local economy.

At the conference he will be reflecting on partnerships and solutions for sustainable healthcare. He will also be available to discuss his recent book about values-based leadership within business and healthcare.
