Dear attendees of the BHS educational courses,

Dear BHS members,

The BHS board has decided to cancel the educational course planned Saturday march 14 due to the current SARS-CoV-2 outbreak.

As we cannot offer a meeting room which assure an acceptable social distance, we think this is the most secure measure to prevent spreading the virus under our trainees who could contaminate our highly vulnerable patients.

The educational councilors are working on a web-based alternative to replace the planned face to face meeting. We keep you informed as soon the presentations are available on the BHS website. The following weeks will learn how we have to proceed for the educational session planned in April.

I hope that we can rate this measure in a few months as “out of proportion”,

On behalf of the BHS board,

Ann Janssens, President BHS
