Another year without face to face meetings, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that didn't stop us from disseminating our work through virtual meetings and events.
Annually in February, the Belgian Red Cross organises its "Prelude", an internal event where volunteers from all over Flanders gather to kick of a new year and to get an overview of the activities of Belgian Red Cross. This year it was a virtual event where CEBaP presented its COVID-19 blood type fact check with a short infomercial [content in Dutch].
In March 2021, the European Resuscitation Council published its new guidelines on resuscitation and first aid. The guidelines are informed by the 2020 CoSTR published by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). At CEBaP, we were part of the First Aid writing group. The launch of the guidelines was accompanied by a Virtual Guidelines Congress during which we presented one of the first aid topics for which we developed a systematic review: storage of an avulsed tooth.
