Future Trends Committee

The Future Trends Committee has been set up to identify and characterise important emerging trends in research and clinical practice and scientific-technological developments.

These trends may be economic, demographic, practise-based, scientific/technological or political in nature. The Future Trends Committee’s purpose is to assess the impact these developments will have on our organisation and its members, patients, physicians and nurses and to advise the UEG decision makers on steps to be taken.
