The first one on the advisability of (recreational and professional) diving activities and the performance of Diving Medical Eexaminations in this current time period. The second one guidelines and recommendations for hyperbaric centres. The hyperbaric treatment environment creates unique challenges and risks, that need to be considered and evaluated, besides the general recommendations issued by local, national and international health care authorities.

The Scott Haldane Foundation (SHF) makes great efforts to achieve an optimal knowledge transfer to its students. EUBS is the scientific umbrella organization for diving and hyperbaric medicine in Europe. Through the Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (DHM) magazine, a joint publication of the EUBS and the colleagues in Asia and Australia (SPUMS), and the annual scientific EUBS conference, the EUBS provides a wealth of knowledge. In addition, the EUBS provides a large database of scientific articles for its members. Therefore SHF offers its active students, those who attended a multi-day SHF course in 2018, a discount of no less than 50% on the 2019 EUBS membership fee. You pay only €60 instead of €120. With this you receive, among other things, the DHM e-journal four times a year (surcharge for the paper version € 30) and a large discount on your registration for the annual conference (in 2019 in Tel Aviv).
For 2019: if you register for a multi-day SHF course in 2019, you can benefit from the SHF-discount arrangement for your EUBS membership 2020.
