The ECDC Winter Workshop 2017 is part of the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) efforts of the Centre and was organised from 5-7 December in Stockholm. The course was well attended, by participants from 22 EU Member States, representing all regions of the EU. The event was strongly appreciated by all participants as a valuable networking opportunity.
Participants said they would recommend this workshop to colleagues, with the intention to share the materials, or use it in their own teaching. Many respondents presented specific plans for such dissemination. This suggests that the Winter Workshop is not just a successful Continuous Professional Development for EU-Member State public health professionals, yet it. The logistic and administrative arrangements received the highest praise from all participants.
The program proved to be well-balanced. Participants greatly appreciated the interactive sessions and practical exercises, and recommended that these should even expand in future editions.
