euPrevent MRSA Project
Since the end of the 20th century, crossing the borders of the countries that make up the European Union has become increasingly easy. In healthcare too, patients are crossing borders more frequently. Patient safety (e.g, protecting patients from infections) is a cross-border topic.
In 2009 care organisations in the border region between the Netherlands and Germany wanted to tackle this problem eugionally. They started the EurSafety Health-Net project along the entire border between Germany and the Netherlands. The Belgian regions in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR) also wanted to cooperate in this project. This resulted in starting an administratively independent EurSafety Health-Net project under the name euPrevent MRSA.
