Review  Semmelweis Conference 2017

The Second CEE Conference on Hospital Hygiene and Patient Safety themed „Communication – the Key for Better Infection Surveillance and Control!“ was a great success. In March 2017, international hygiene-experts and executives from the CEE region came together in Budapest, Hungary, to discuss new findings and approaches related to hospital hygiene.

In many interesting lectures, panel discussions and e-paper presentations the speakers shared their knowledge and opened the eyes of the audience for importance of communication about hygiene issues in hospitals. Also the opportunities for networking made the Second Semmelweis CEE Conference on Hospital Hygiene and Patient Safety in Budapest in March 2017 a highly valuable event for around 300 participants.

This is shown by the overwhelmingly positive feedback, which proves the relevance of this conference and greatly encourages us to continue our efforts. For the next and third CEE Conference, we are again doing our best to invite experts with different views and profound knowledge to gain even more insights into the possibilities for reducing antimicrobial resistances and increasing the hygiene level in health care institutions.

In March 2019, the third CEE Conference on Hospital Hygiene and Patient Safety will take place in Vienna, Austria, and we would be very pleased to welcome you there.
