On 15 January, CED President Dr Wolfgang Doneus and the President of the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME), Dr Katrín Fjeldsted signed in Brussels a Memorandum of Understanding to reaffirm the commitment of both organisations to cooperate to achieve high quality of healthcare for every patient in Europe. CED and CPME Presidents agreed that this year the main priority is the antimicrobial resistance, committing to promote prudent prescription practices and to raise awareness about the importance of preserving antibiotics’ efficacy. They further agreed to meet on an annual basis to exchange information and discuss common issues of the EU agenda affecting dental and medical professions.
