In order to meet the future, medical laboratories must provide a sustainable use of resources, including biomedical laboratory scientists (BLS´s), laboratory tests and laboratory equipment. Future technology and sustainable development will therefore be a common thread in the academic programme and all speakers will be challenged to include the topic in their lectures.
At the Nordic session (session 1), the lectures will take place in English and topics such as education, recruitment, ethics, innovation, and future trends will be on the agenda. During the four scientific sessions, lectures will mainly be given in Norwegian.
NITOs new ethics game
NITO BFI's professional ethics council will visit all sessions in the "ethics quarter" and invite all participants to test out the new ethics game in a separate workshop area. Playing the game is scheduled at specific hours Monday and Wednesday.
Actionplan for the Future
"A healthcare without Biomedical Laboratory Scientists?". Most of the professionals would shake their heads at such a dystopia, but Swedish prognosis and statistics paint a grim picture. The recruitment and retention of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists is a global challenge as well as Nordic. Trade unions and professional bodies have for long been trying to draw the attention of politicians and employers to the acute situation, but now is the time the profession itself raises a voice in the matter.
Join the Workshop “Actionplan for the Future” at Tuesday at 10.15 and contribute to changing the odds.
