6 subcommittees comprising some fifty members (suppliers of cold chain equipment, healthcare professionals, metrologists, etc.) will be taking part this year:
We will be taking part in the sessions ‘The Last Mile’ and ‘Sustainable Development’ (we will also be chairing this subcommittee). These are two subjects that are very important to us!
For more than 5 years, we have invested in a programme of support for healthcare establishments in order to ensure that healthcare professionals are aware of the importance of safeguarding heat-sensitive healthcare products until they are administered to the patient. We will be providing a variety of recommendations during the ‘Conference on the Cold Chain for Health Products’.
We quickly turned our attention to this problem in conjunction with our business activity as a manufacturer of insulated shipping packaging systems and we have come up with solutions: ecologically-sound design of temperature controlled packaging solutions, reduction of the weight of the packaging solutions, implementation of a recycling programme and many more.
In order to reduce CO2 emissions and the energy consumption caused by the transport of medicinal products via the cold chain, all the players must get involved (laboratories, hospitals, clinics and pharmacies).
The ‘Cold Chain for Health Products’ seminar is organised on the initiative of the AFF ("Association Française du Froid" [The French Refrigeration Association]) and the SFSTP ("Société Française des Sciences et Techniques Pharmaceutiques" [The French Society for Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technology]), chaired respectively by Gérald Cavalier and Vincent Boudy. The first ‘Conference on the Cold Chain for Health Products’’ seminar was held in 2008. Since then, each event has been marked by success!
In 2012, the 3rd seminar was host to more than 220 participants – representatives of everyone involved in the cold chain – and 15 exhibitors. We showed a documentary film, shot at the Hospital Center in Arras (62), concerning the bad and good practices applied to every link in the cold chain. The published information was appreciated for its effectiveness and its relevance.
Come along to the 4th Seminar with an equally instructive programme!
