IPEM joins the Global Clinical Engineering Alliance
IPEM has joined an international organisation representing the clinical engineering field worldwide.
The Global Clinical Engineering Alliance (GCEA) empowers and recognizes the clinical engineering profession for its unique contribution to improving healthcare delivery outcomes.
It helps to address shared healthcare challenges and provides international professional networking between and across healthcare stakeholders, associations, policy makers, global agencies, academia, government, and industry.
The GCEA’s goal is to educate and advocate via global alliances for patients and staff and supports the expansion of education programmes designed to improve systems thinking, standards and regulatory frameworks.
IPEM has now joined 14 other organisations around the world who make up the GCEA, which was formed after the Global Clinical Engineering Day in 2020.
Dr Robert Farley, IPEM’s President, said: ‘I’m delighted we have joined with other like-minded organisations who form the GCEA to promote the invaluable work of clinical engineering within healthcare.
‘The Alliance’s goals also closely mirror IPEM’s charitable objective to promote for the public benefit the advancement of physics and engineering applied to medicine and biology and to advance public education in the field.’
