The workshop was held on 3 and 4 May at the offices of Biosistemak (formerly Kronikgune) at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre BEC in Barakaldo. 

JADECARE aims to help reduce health inequalities in the EU and encourage the implementation and use of digital and innovative solutions to deliver person-centred healthcare. The project is transferring and adopting four Best Practices from the Basque Country, Catalonia, Denmark and Germany that were selected by the European Commission to different contexts and health systems in the European Union. The Joint Action will end in October 2023.

The project is in the post-implementation phase, focused on the analysis and evaluation of both the process and the results of the implementation deployed in JADECARE for the transfer of the four Best Practices. Four workshops have been held in May 2023 (one for each transferred good practice) to share learning and lessons learned in the transfer process by the next adopters, regions that are implementing elements of the good practices.

The workshops conducted have served to:

  1. Share among the Early Adopters experiences and results of the implementation of the local Good Practices, focusing on deviations, problems encountered, unexpected findings and mitigating actions implemented.
  2. Self-assessment of the implementation results with recommendations for future improvement actions.
  3. Discuss challenges and actions to ensure the sustainability of local Good Practices beyond JADECARE.

The workshop related to the Euskadi Best Practice was organised in a hybrid format, bringing together 17 people in person and 10 people who connected online.

During the JADECARE workshop in Bilbao, the Danish team from the Steno Diabetes Center Nordjylland (SDCN) visited the Osakidetza facilities. Given that it is a diabetes research centre, in addition to visiting the Cruces University Hospital, they met with the endocrinology team to learn about the projects and actions that they are carrying out. They also learned about the work being carried out at the Biobizkaia Institute (formerly Biocruces Bizkaia) in this field.
