JOIN Clinical Working Group meets in Paris

From 07th to 09th February, the JOIN Clinical Working Group met in Paris to progress in the drafting of European-wide First Aid Standards for Schools. Delegates from Cyprus, England, Germany and Italy came together in the French capital.

Following a short update on the European First Aid Guidelines, the Clinical Group wrote two stories, including basic principles of first aid for children aged from five to seven. The materials are designed to be interactive and enhanced by opportunities for discussion and colouring in. The Clinical Group believes that these simple lessons will be best learnt if the experience is fun and interactive. The Clinical Working Group will continue its work in the following weeks and will meet face-to-face again in May 2020.
