In 2017, the 1st European Compression Days, organized jointly in France and Spain, brought together a total of 2,200 healthcare professionals. In 2018, the initiative was repeated in France and Spain and extended to the United Kingdom. More than 3,000 healthcare professionals were trained, making it a huge success.
In 2019, the event was held in France, Spain and the United Kingdom and extended to the Netherlands for an even broader distribution of the training courses. Workshops, symposia and webinars were held in leg ulcer management centres in France to raise awareness about treatment among healthcare professionals concerned—specialists, general practitioners, nurses, pharmacists—as well as patients. An educational video game was also developed to share best care practices through storytelling. The 2019 edition gathered almost 3,800 participants.
