Between 14 and 17 January 2018, DARWIN project partners SINTEF, KMC, ISS and BGU took part in the fifth International Preparedness and Response to Emergencies and Disasters (IPRED V) Conference in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Each year the conference is an opportunity for experts from around the world to share the latest findings and new experiences concerning health system readiness and emergencies of all types. This year, resilience was an important theme of the conference, with nearly 1000 participants from over 30 countries taking part.
The DARWIN project hosted an interactive workshop during the event chaired by project partners Ivonne Herrera from SINTEF, Norway, and Limor Aharonson-Daniel from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.
40 resilience experts participated in the DARWIN workshop, which addressed recent developments in the project based on the most up-to-date research in the field and innovative training tools. During the workshop, experts gave feedback on whether the DARWIN Resilience Management Guidelines (DRMG) account for the needs and priorities of healthcare practitioners in resilience and crisis management.
The IPRED Conference was also an opportunity to expand the membership of the DARWIN Community of Practitioners (DCoP), with 15 resilience and crisis experts joined the DCoP at workshop and the DARWIN exhibition stand.
