This training focuses on healthcare workers (doctors, midwives, nurses,U+2026) from key departments in hospitals (emergency ward, gynaeco, uro, gastro, pediatrics, geriatrics, psychiatry, social service, liaison) but is open to any fuction/service.  Given COVID-19 the modules are being offered as online webinars in Dutch and in French.
