BASL and BSG have commissioned The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare to run a series of 3 virtual Sustainable Healthcare webinars on:

• 26th March - ''Introduction to sustainable healthcare in the context of liver disease'
• 14th May - ‘Embedding sustainability into service development and delivery using the SusQI framework’ - title TBC
• 16th July - ‘Research in sustainability: the role of carbon footprinting’?  - title TBC  

Time: 6- 7pm (UK time) - 45 minute presentation and 15 minute Q&A.

The first webinar will outline the relationship between health, the health sector and the climate and ecological crises with reference to gastroenterology, specifically hepatology. How is the health system both vulnerable to and contributing to climate change and ecological degradation? What would a sustainable healthcare system look like? What might the wider benefits be and how can we achieve this?
