Make Sense Campaign
Make Sense Campaign is a campaign to raise Head and Neck Cancer Awareness. Every year EDSA supports Annual Awareness Week by posting campaign materials and messages on our Facebook page. These posts generate over 35,000 views every year and enable campaign messages to engage with new audiences. Building upon the Make Sense framework, EDSA has designed a project to facilitate patient screenings and awareness events at university dental clinics.
Collaborating with the Make Sense campaign was the perfect opportunity to help us expand our awareness and prevention projects. This addresses the important unmet need for raising awareness of head and neck cancer among dentists. Dentists are at the forefront of the early detection of such diseases. As the voice for the generation to come, EDSA has a key role to promote health and best practices to the next European dental professionals.
European Healthcare Students Associations Summit (EHSAS)
A Joint Policy Paper on Interprofessional Education was finalized by all partners organizations of the European Healthcare Students’ Associations Summit (EHSAS). This followed a wide-scale survey of European healthcare students that gathered answers from 36 countries and 5 professions.
Interprofessional education (IPE) appears as a forerunner to efficient and fulfilling interprofessional collaboration (IPC). IPC is essential to patient-centered care and it has the potential to dramatically improve the quality of treatments provided to our patients.
EHSAS is a precursor summit with representatives from all major European healthcare student associations. It gathers European Dental Students Association (EDSA), European Pharmaceutical Students Association (EPSA), European Medical Students Association (EMSA), European Federation of Psychology Students Association (EFPSA) and European Nursing Students Association (ENSA).
