After that, participants shared and discussed with their groups to establish the main hospital challenges. Finally, a representative for each work group presented to the audience more than 30 challenges that future hospital will have to cope with.

We would like to thank everyone for making the session such an unforgettable experience. Our unit is very satisfied both with the results and the positive feedback we received throughout the session.
