The EDS Council meeting took place on March 29, 2021. As part of the work of our Board member Giovanni Marchegiani on the UEG Quality of Care Task Force, efforts are being made to improve clinical standards and reduce health disparities across Europe. The Quality of Care Task Force maintains a set of standards and guidelines. Ideas and initiatives from EDS members are welcome for further development.
