Another ProCKD Transnational Project Meeting was held in Madrid. On May 9th-10th 2022 we had a meeting in Madrid, Spain. This face-to-face meeting was held because the first kick-off meeting, programmed in Madrid, was held online due to the Covid19 traveling limitations. The ProCKD project keeps on focusing on the needs and problems of patients with chronic kidney disease to support them in training and education, employment, and entrepreneurship, removing the obstacles for a person who wishes to have a fulfilling professional life.
The Federación Nacional de Asociaciones ALCER organized the transnational meeting and arranged a very varied program, with among others a visit to COCEMFE, the Spanish Confederation of People with Physical and Organic Disabilities, which explained their main activity as the European Erasmus+ projects they are involved in.
The meeting in Madrid was perfectly coherent with the objectives of the partnership, has been well developed according to the initial planning, and dealt with all the aspects related to the
development of the ProCKD project and presentations on the perspectives brought by each organization to the project topic: the improvement of working conditions for both maintenance and job search of patients with chronic kidney diseases or patients designated as ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease), especially those patients who face numerous barriers after starting dialysis treatments.
ProCKD Good Practices
Currently, all partners are gathering their good practices. It will be very good to see what kind of elements work in each partner country, so we will be able to find out the key elements of a successful future ProCKD project implementation.
