Dr Katrin Fjeldsted

CPME President

"Stress and other psychosocial factors create a heavy burden on Europe’s societies, impairing quality of life and, in some cases, even resulting in the loss of life. CPME is committed to raising awareness for the importance of the workplace in tackling these issues and supporting the medical profession in translating this approach to every-day patient care."

Mission statement:
The Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME) represents national medical associations across Europe. We are committed to contributing the medical profession’s point of view to EU and European policy-making through pro-active cooperation on a wide range of health and healthcare related issues. - We believe the best possible quality of health and access to healthcare should be a reality for everyone. To achieve this, CPME promotes the highest level of medical training and practice, the safe mobility of physicians and patients, lawful and supportive working conditions for physicians and the provision of evidence-based, ethical and equitable healthcare services. We offer support to those working towards these objectives whenever needed. - We see the patient-doctor relationship as fundamental in achieving these objectives and are committed to ensuring its trust and confidentiality are protected while the relationship evolves with healthcare systems. Patient safety and quality of care are central to our policies. - We strongly advocate a ‘health in all policies’ approach to encourage cross-sectoral awareness for and action on the determinants of health, to prevent disease and promote good health across society. CPME’s policies are shaped through the expertise provided by our membership of national medical associations, representing physicians across all medical specialties all over Europe and creating a dialogue between the national and European dimensions of health and healthcare.
Our Campaign Pledge:

CPME looks forward to contributing towards the objectives of the campaign by promoting its messages to the CPME membership, European medical doctors across all specialties represented through their National Medical Associations. To this end, information will be disseminated at a meeting of the CPME Board. CPME will also raise awareness for the importance of the workplace environment in relation to stress and other psychosocial risks by disseminating the ‘CPME Policy on Mental Health at the Workplace’ through the CPME website, newsletter and social media.
