CERPs International

What is CERPs international?

Cerps International is a very special training event organized by ELACTA for its members and those who want to become members. IBCLC colleagues from all over Europe meet in a small group to learn from and with each other. We keep the feel-good factor very high.

In the morning we listen to the submitted lectures, workshops or case reports, while in the afternoon/evening we get to know the host country, its culture, nature and cuisine, and have ample time to exchange ideas with colleagues from different countries, to get to know each other better and to deepen discussions.

On 21-23 April 2023, we will meet in the beautiful island of Malta!

Why is there no program in the call for papers?

No speakers will be invited for this event, instead the program will be created from the contributions submitted by the participants. Experienced colleagues probably have ready-made presentations or workshops they can share with us, younger colleagues may want to test their presentation skills in this small, protected setting. And certainly, most of us have interesting case reports to share with other colleagues.

From experience, we have always had a very diverse program with which we could award something like 10 – 12 CERPs.

The main event language is English, but as soon as we have enough participants and speakers in another language we can organize parallel lectures in that language.

We will keep all registered participants informed about the submitted papers and speakers.
