DAN's Continuing Medical Education staff strives to assist physicians and other healthcare providers in obtaining new information that will lead to better quality and availability of care to the diving community worldwide.
The internationally recognized resources of the Divers Alert Network Europe (DAN Europe) and its affiliation with the European Committee for Hyperbaric Medicine (ECHM) and the European College of Baromedicine (ECB) provide cutting-edge medical and research information. This, of course, directly supports DAN's mission.
DAN's CME provides "full-service" with regard to the educational activities it develops. Having hosted the "DAN Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine" course worldwide for the past 15 years, the staff is in touch with all aspects of travel, housing, and providing for the attendees comfort during these courses.
Plans for the Future
DAN's CME program is continually growing. Educational programming has increased 125% in the past year and has included the first HBO course taught in Spanish. The educational mission will expand to more members of the diving community -- both physicians and non-physicians -- and focus on providing information that will lead to better quality and availability of care to the diving community.
