    Animal research has had a vital role in many scientific and medical advances of the past century and continues to aid our understanding of various diseases. Throughout the world, people enjoy a better quality of life because of these advances, and the subsequent development of new medicines and treatments—all made possible by animal research. However, the use of animals in scientific and medical research has been a subject of heated debate for many years. The European Act requires that proposals for research involving the use of animals must be fully assessed in terms of any harm to the animals. This involves detailed examination of the particular procedures and experiments, and the numbers and types of animal used. In this workshop we shall examine ethical issues of the pre-clinical work and the implementation of 3R's (EMBO Rep. 2007 Jun; 8(6): 526–530). The growing proliferation of trials, investigating an increasing number of potentially promising novel disease therapies and health interventions, has grown disproportionately to the number of experienced clinical research centers. As of June 2017, there were close to 250,000 studies listed in

    It is ultimately, physicians, investigators, research teams and ethics committees who have a joint ethical responsibility to ensure that all viable clinical trial options are presented to patients and we may learn optimal ways to accomplish this from the experience of institutions that have successfully modeled ethical ways to ensure equitable information and access to research programs. In this workshop we shall examine these issues as well as new ones such GDPR (Contemporary Clinical Trials Communications, Vol 14, June 2019)

  • First Aid Warzone Training by Hellenic Red Cross- Department of Ioannina

    Facilitators: Gkartzonikas I., MD, HRC instructor, Ioannina, Kavlakoudi A., HRC instructorCholeva M., Zouni C. Ε., Kalliarekos E., Ioannina HRC Volunteers

    Year: 2+

    Duration: 75’

    First Aid is not simply performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, bandaging a wound or transferring a trauma patient to the hospital. It is also holding someone’s hand, reassuring frightened individuals that they are safe and providing support with personal involvement and commitment. In armed conflicts and other situations where violence is involved, First Aid providers take the risk of getting hurt from gunfire, collapsing buildings, burning cars, unstable building remains and tear gas. They step forward to help those in need when the most natural reflex would be to run the other way. Armed conflicts and other situations of violence are common in the modern world. Saving lives and providing assistance for casualties remain shared concerns of all Red Cross and Red Crescent First Aiders. In this context we will try to emphasize on: Initial assessment and management & examples on ABCDE approach, Basic principles of triage & practice on triage tools, rescue manoeuvres demonstration, Scenarios on trauma and management of haemorrhage.

    Hematology is the only clinical-laboratory specialty and an integral part of it is the assessment of peripheral blood smear and myelogram. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the assessment of the peripheral blood smear. First, they will get to know the characteristics of the normal morphological components of blood and then, after morphological disorders are presented, clinical cases with characteristic morphological lesions will be discussed, in order to make the diagnosis. This workshop, through the immediacy and the discussion that will be developed, aspires to take an interactive character.
