Celebrating Global Clinical Engineering Day

THE third Global Clinical Engineering Day was marked with a series of events around the world – and IPEM members played their part.

Clinical engineers around the world celebrated on 21 October, a date which commemorates the first International Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management Congress, which was held in Hangzhou, China, three years ago.

The Global Clinical Engineering website featured interviews with members of the clinical engineering community, highlighting associations from around the world and streaming videos to showcase various clinical engineering roles and functions.

The day, which serves as an opportunity to recognise the important contributions clinical engineers make to improving health, was hosted by the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering’s Clinical Engineering Division, in collaboration with the World Health Organization and clinical engineering associations across the world.

A number of IPEM members took part, with their presentations streamed live on the website on the day, which you can see here.
