On the 19th of September, ECCRT will host a dedicated event to facilitate discussion amongst peers in matters of Learning & Development of clinical teams (and beyond): we are all facing the same challenges: our teams need to be up and running in the most expedited way, whilst maintaining compliance at the desired levels. On top of that new technologies and different user needs are introduced with a speed never seen before. The theme of the forum this year will be about keeping the right balance between being at the forefront of innovation and being compliant for the regulators.

We will have a some keynote lectures on these topics but the event will mainly be around sharing experience & learning from each other to make learning more efficient, effective and engaging.
