CHRODIS + Joint Action hosts EU policy dialogue on employment and chronic conditions

On the 12th of November 2019, the CHRODIS + Joint Action Work Package 8 organised an event in the European Parliament to discuss employment and reintegration into work issues for people with chronic diseases. Hosted by MEP Massimiliano Salini, the meeting aimed to:

  • bring together EU stakeholders for a common understanding of the benefits of the workplace inclusion, integration and reintegration of people with chronic conditions
  • present the Toolbox on Employment and Chronic Conditions developed within the EU Joint Action. This Toolbox includes a Training Tool for managers on workplace inclusion and work ability and a Toolkit for workplace adaptation, health promotion and disease prevention.

The event included a roundtable discussion on practical steps for EU policy to support employment for people with chronic diseases, to which ECDA Chairman Prof. Raymond Vanholder contributed. ECDA is a collaborating partner of the Work Package 8.

The CHRODIS + Toolbox will be launched in April 2020 and available on the CHRODIS + Joint Action website.
