Consortium members

The interdisciplinary BE-SAFE consortium brings together countries with different healthcare systems, clinical pathways, and levels of wealth from diverse parts of Europe (Belgium, Greece, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland) and beyond Europe (Canada) and includes international experts in guideline development and validation, case studies,  geriatrics, implementation, pharmacotherapy, psychology, sleep and neurology and dissemination and communication.

BE-SAFE collaborates with patient organisations (Advisory Board),, Choosing Wisely (including 16 European countries), OECD and Cochrane Sustainable Healthcare, to organise and conduct networking and joint activities to support implementation, communication and dissemination of its approach in an appropriate language to all important audiences.
