Education of emergency department workers

As part of the project Continuous professional training of emergency medicine workers, from 23 to 26 June 2020, EP5 training programme exercise was held in Crikvenica for nurses in emergency departments. Led by Katja Kudrna Prašek, a team of national instructors introduced the participants to new knowledge and skills through practical work and simulation of the actual situations and conditions in the emergency departments. The exercise gathered 30 professionals from the general hospitals of Bjelovar, Ogulin, Sisak, VaraĹždin, Zabok and Zadar and from the Clinical Hospital Center Rijeka.

The project Continuing professional training of emergency medicine workers is co-financed by resources from the European Social Fund and implemented by the Croatian Institute of Emergency Medicine with the aim of maintaining and improving the knowledge and skills of emergency medicine workers, while at the same time advancing healthcare in the Republic of Croatia and improving access to high-quality health services.
