On 19th September 2019, from 2.00 to 3.00pm, the EU Health Policy Platform will host a live webinar in English on:
Employment and Chronic Conditions in Europe – Facing the challenge
It aims to share information on chronic conditions in the work sector and how Chrodis Plus is dealing with it. One of the tools developed by WP8 will be presented - the Training Tool for managers to help them understand the benefits of the inclusion, integration and reintegration of people suffering from chronic diseases.
Managers are encouraged to implement the Training Tool to evaluate inclusiveness and workability of their teams, so as to create facilitating environments for reaching desirable organisational outcomes: productivity, job satisfaction of all employees, and organisational commitment.
The webinar will demonstrate the importance to inform managers, HR and employers regarding the capacities of people with chronic conditions to continue working, return to work, maintenance of work, fighting stigma and inappropriate behaviors when there is disclosure of a chronic condition.
Your participation in the webinar would contribute to increased awareness on the issue of having people with chronic conditions in the workplace and dealing with maintenance, reintegration and returning to work.
Participation is open to anyone who is interested!

Since its introduction in 2000, the Annual European Congress of Rheumatology has become the primary platform for exchange of scientific and clinical information in Europe. It is also a renowned forum for interaction between medical doctors, scientists, people with arthritis/rheumatism, health professionals and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry worldwide. The EULAR congress is usually held in June in one of the major cities in Europe.
The scientific programme at the congress covers a wide range of topics on clinical innovations, clinical, translational and basic science. Meetings set up by associations of people with arthritis/rheumatism, health professionals and the health care industry complement the programme. The poster sessions, offering lively interaction between presenters and participants, are regarded by many as the heart of the congress.
Over the years, the EULAR Congress has gained a reputation of being a most innovative platform for the practicing physician particularly with respect to the acquisition of information on novel clinical research. The congress has seen a steady increase in the number of attendees. More than 16,000 delegates from all over the world registered at the EULAR Congress 2011 in London.
