CSH at CleanMed Europe 2021

Monday, 22 November, 2021

Europe’s leading conference on sustainable healthcare, CleanMed Europe, will be held online from 29 November – 3 December 2021.

Hosted by Health Care Without Harm Europe, the conference showcases cutting-edge practices in sustainable healthcare and is the ideal venue for healthcare innovators to network and share ideas, finding new ways to drive change within their organisations and communities.

This year’s theme for CleanMed Europe is Designing tomorrow’s healthcare. As we plan our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and environmental degradation pose increasing long term threats to the health and wellbeing of people across the world. There is now an unprecedented opportunity to reshape healthcare so that it can meet the needs of tomorrow - creating a service that is sustainable, equitable, and resilient to growing environmental health threats and future pandemics.

The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) is delighted that Dr Frances Mortimer, Dr Olivia Bush, Carey Newson and Siobhan Parslow-Williams will be joining the conference, speaking at the following sessions:

Innovative approaches to sustainable healthcare delivery

Hear from clinicians and researchers in Finland and the UK who are developing innovative approaches to sustainable healthcare delivery in a variety of settings and care pathways - from sustainable respiratory care to sustainable health and well-being at maternity and child health clinics.

Nurses: Inspiring stories for climate-smart healthcare

This session will focus on how nurses can engage in sustainability efforts and will present real-life examples of successful projects led by nurses. Three Nurse Climate Champions will present their pro jects to improve health, protect the environment, and reduce the climate impact of healthcare provision.

Nature, health, and climate change

Incorporating nature into healthcare can promote not only better health and recovery, but can also help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the impacts of climate change. With speakers from across the globe, this session aims to explore the linkages between nature, health and climate change.
