Welcome to the June 2015 edition of the HE&WM newsletter, the newsletter of the EU-HCWM project. June marks the midway point in the project and it has been a busy month on two fronts. Firstly we have completed the Internal Evaluation of the new qualification framework and this will be the key milestone for the Interim Report to the Agency.
The Internal Evaluation has been completed following an extensive consultation process involving the partner member states professional networks and also where practicable at their informative workshops. The response has been excellent and we have put together a summer addition of the HE&WM which will be dedicated to the outputs of the internal evaluation process.
In this issue however we have turned the spotlight on some of the other outputs from the project which helped to better engage the key stakeholders, the healthcare waste managers. We have short reports from the informative workshops held in UK; Germany and Poland. We have a project update from the latest project co-ordination meeting in Barcelona and then we have an update on the website traffic at the project website.
We have also included in this months newsletter previews of the ISWA and the EUPH conferences taking place in Antwerp and Rome respectively in the Autumn.
