JOIN First Aid Guidelines

For the very first time, a set of common European-wide First Aid Guidelines has been successfully produced. Developed by an international team of experts, who form the JOIN Clinical Working Group, the Guidelines promote the importance of First Aid in daily situations at home, at work, and in daily life. They are designed to apply in every European country, also providing a solution to some cross-border health issues and helping to foster international cooperation.

The JOIN Guidelines are intended for First Aiders, the general public, as well as health professionals and, are available to all users for free. They are currently available in thirteen European languages: Dutch, English, Finish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Spanish, Swedish, and also Arabic.
