First WP7 Partners’ Meeting

09 July 2014

The first WP7 meeting was held in Rome, Italy, on 9 July 2014. The contribution of the partners was crucial in making the meeting an excellent opportunity to promote exchanges, discussion, sharing of resources and experiences.

The purpose of the meeting was to present an update of the work package activities, listen to the partners’ presentations, and create a melting pot of experiences for a better coordination of work.

In particular, the draft of the questionnaire relative to tasks 1- 4 was presented and discussed. The aim of the questionnaire is to map national/regional strategies on four essential topics:

  • Identification of high-risk people, and prevention of type 2 diabetes;
  • Secondary prevention, including models of care delivery;
  • Health promotion interventions;
  • Educational intervention for persons with diabetes, and training for health professionals.

In general the questionnaire has been considered useful and complete, but too long and complex.

Based on the comments and suggestions raised during the meeting, a new version of the questionnaire is being developed trying to simplify, as much as possible, the structure to allow all the responders to describe their country experiences and contribute to the overview. It was noted that the WP7 activity does not aim to survey all the experiences in the European countries, but is intended to enable countries to share what they think are the best experiences/practices available.

The broad and free discussion among the participants, allowed to point out again the characteristics of JA-CHRODIS as a Joint Action of health authorities themselves that, together with all the partners, will act to improve the capacity to prevent and contrast chronic diseases.
