The 1st ever HELP course on the falsification of medical products and similar crimes concluded successfully less than 3 months after its launching in co-operation with the Spanish Judicial School.
The School Director, Gema Espinosa Conde, welcomed participants to the closing session of the MEDICRIME training.
Oscar Alarcón, Co-Secretary of the CDPCand the national tutor, Silvia Mendoza Calderón, made an assessment of the course content and format and underlined the deep engagement of successful participants. Out of the initially enrolled 26 participants, the course has been completed by 21 participants (15 Spanish and 6 from Latin America).
The tour the table provided a unique opportunity to get direct feedback to improve future editions of the course and ways to improve the HELP learning platform. The legal content was praised and participants showed a better understanding on how to tackle this emerging crime.
The Spanish version of the course takes into account the latest amendments to the Criminal Code following the ratification by Spain of the MEDICRIME Convention. Case studies and judgments in this field, both in Spain and at European level, were analysed.
Professor Carlos María Romeo Casabona made a keynote presentation on different criminal provisions raised during the whole training.
Eva Pastrana, HELP in the 28 coordinator, encouraged participants to enrolling in other HELP courses available freely here, particularly those created under HELP in the 28 and the reasoning of judgments.
