BVF symposium 2019: Past - Present - Future (14 mei 2019)

Op dinsdag 14 mei as. zal het jaarlijkse symposium van de Vereniging BVF-Platform plaatsvinden in Hotel Theater Figi te Zeist. De vereniging bestaat 20 jaar en daarom heeft de dag een feestelijk tintje en sluiten we af met een walking diner. 

Het thema dit jaar is “Past - Present - Future”.

Het programma begint om 9:45 uur en is binnenkort te vinden op onze website  Diverse sprekers zullen iets vertellen over de geschiedenis van het BVF Platform, de huidige werkvelden waar de BVF mee te maken kan krijgen en toekomstige ontwikkelingen. Het middagprogramma bestaat uit lezingen en enkele parallelsessies in workshop-vorm met mogelijkheid tot discussie en duurt tot 17:15 uur. Hierna kan nog nagepraat worden tijdens de borrel. Van 18.00 uur tot 20.00 uur kunt u genieten van het walking diner, waarvoor u zich apart moet aanmelden.

Zoals gebruikelijk zal op deze dag de Algemene Ledenvergadering (ALV) van de Vereniging BVF Platform worden gehouden. Deze is toegankelijk voor iedereen, maar alleen de leden van de Vereniging hebben stemrecht en zullen ook de bijbehorende stukken ontvangen. Diegenen die de ALV niet bijwonen kunnen een bezoek brengen aan onze sponsoren. Uiteraard is hier tijdens de pauzes ook voldoende tijd voor.

Joint BVF Platform-BBP Symposium

(Vereniging BVF Platform - Belgian Biosafety Professionals)

Emergencypreparedness and response

The Belgian Biosafety Professionals and the Biological Safety Officers Platform thank the sponsors for supporting this event.


February 5, 2019

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Ensuring that our colleagues work safely with biological materials is our day-to-day job, but what if an unexpected, unplanned and unwanted event occurs?

Are you prepared for an emergency involving biological materials?
The aim of the symposium is to familiarize the participants with emergency preparedness and response, thereby including all potential stakeholders. By means of a short classroom introduction and multiple hands-on break-out sessions, participants will gain insight in emergency planning, training and communication with stakeholders.

Programme

09.30    Welcome with coffee – Registration

10.00    Word of welcome – Mieke Jansen, President BVFp - Forumzaal

10:05    Key-note lecture: A wild poliovirus type 2 incident post-eradication - Dr. Erwin Duizer, RIVM - Forumzaal

Poliovirus wildtype 2 was eradicated since 1999, in 2016 the poliovirus type 2 component was removed from the live vaccines (OPV) in a worldwide WHO coordinated vaccine switch program. A year later an accident happened with a wildtype 2 poliovirus in a vaccine production facility: 2 operators were exposed  and one was found to be infected with this eradicated virus. How we dealt with this accident (and others) and how we will hopefully deal with future incidents will be presented, in view of the public health issues and GAPIII requirements.

Erwin Duizer:
Erwin Duizer obtained his master degree in Cell Biology at the Agricultural University Wageningen in 1993 and his PhD after 4 years of research at TNO Food and Nutrition Research Institute in 1999 at the same university. In 1998 he started a postdoc position at the Research Laboratory for Infectious Diseases, at the national Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). At the RIVM he worked as senior scientist on viruses and foodsafety and viruses and hygiene while taking on several management tasks in the meantime. In 2015 he became Head of the National Polio Laboratory and WHO Specialized Reference Laboratory for Polio at the RIVM.

10.45    Four parallel thematic sessions that highlight different aspects of EP&R

Break-out session 1:    Emergency in practice
Moderators:                  Gijsbert van Willigen – Ewout Fanoy – Toon de Kesel – Putri Hintaran
Room:                            Aberdeen (M3-03)

In a BSL3-facility incidents and accidents can happen. But do you know what you have to do when there is a spill in a BSL3-faclity?

In this break-out the participants need to define a spill response process based on 2 emergency scenarios in a BSL3 containment area. For this, a brainstorm exercise will be performed by the participants in order to identify the possible spill procedure in 1 of the 2 scenarios. Questions to be answered are: What is the first response step?; What actions need to be taken? and What is the follow-up after the first response?

The participants will be divided into 2 groups. Each group will only discuss 1 of the 2 scenarios. The outcome of the brainstorm session will be an example of the basic approach in order to further develop the emergency response procedures (ERP) for the spill response team. The outcome of both groups will be discussed with all the participants.

Break-out session 2:   Get your team ready for an emergency: a table-top exercise
Moderators:                 Evelien Kampert – Diane Lahey – Erik Genbrugge
Room:                           Montreal (M1-04)

Emergencies don't follow rules. However, it is vital to regain control of the situation as quickly as possible. Being well prepared is only half the work. This session will bring very real examples (e.g. leakage of highly infectious agent into sewer system, injured person in an BSL-3 environment, escape of animals from an ABSL-3 environment) and together with your moderator you will brainstorm on how to safely stabilise the emergency situation.

Break-out session 3:   Everything you need to know – from concept to implementation (‘noodplan’)
Moderators:                 Marcel van Bergen – René Custers
Room:                           Franeker (M1-07)

Session 3 will guide the participants through the set-up of an emergency plan, from concept to implementation and training.

Break-out session 4:   Communication in times of emergency: 'to tell or not to tell'
Moderators:                 Herman Schreurs  - Arnout de Bruin
Room:                           Leuven (M1-08)

Communicating effectively with all stakeholders in case of an emergency will never be easy. The rise of social media adds an extra challenge to that.
This session will help you in deciding what to tell, how to tell it and to whom, all in order to support the effective implementation of protective actions and to minimize fear. Session 4 will provide insights in how to set up a robust communication plan
