Disruption, innovation and resilience

beyond the COVID-19 crisis

It is highly unlikely that the COVID-19 pandemic situation will permit a meeting in June in Lisbon, and with the EPH Conference in November we already have another virtual event.
Under these conditions we decided to cancel the midterm conference.
We invite you to re-submit your abstract for the EPH Congress, Dublin/virtually,
It is the same format as for Lisbon. We wish to thank very much all colleagues who submitted an abstract and look very much forward to meeting you again hopefully soon if the pandemic is more under control.
In the meantime please keep in contact and join us virtually at the EPH Conference – health workforce research has never been more important than now.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created the most serious empirical ‘stress test’ for health systems and healthcare workers across the globe; many healthcare workers paid with their health and wellbeing, even with their life.


This second mid-term Conference seeks to critically reflect on the lessons to be learned from the COVID-19 situation and on how to build a future health workforce that is resilient, fit-for practice and prepared for emergencies.
