A unified and cohesive scientific community towards the exchange of data on research and experiments to combat the epidemic in cooperation with institutions. This was expressed in synthesis by the conference organized by the Union of Surgeons and Dentists of Siena, committed in the first row to bring together national and international eminent personalities to share the knowledge available on Covid 19. In aula Magna of the University of Siena the doctors discussed the news of “Covid and Long Covid: the importance of Science and the role of the organization.
Roberto Monaco, President of the Siena Physicians and Dentists Union, said: “Today’s meeting highlighted how all doctors can make their lives available, without condition or reservations, even at the risk of losing them, to guarantee the right to health for our citizens. (Omceo Siena) Secretary of the National Confederation of Trade Unions Physicians and Dentists (FNOMCeO) – We have confirmed that vaccines are our main weapon and that other medicines will be possible thanks to science. For a physician, science is the guide, and the code of ethics is the beacon.”
Following the greetings of Rector Francesco Fratti and Tuscany Health Adviser Simon Pizzini, Silvio Brusaferro, President of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, spoke.
“Thank you all and Roberto Monaco, President of the Order of Siena and National Secretary of FNOMCeO, for the work you are doing and for this important exchange opportunity.” According to Brusaferro, communication and prevention will be some of the pillars on which we must build the future health system, without losing sight of the collateral damage of the long virus: mental health. The impact on the mental health of the world’s population will be a priority in the coming years. Even according to forecasts, the main problem will be in 2030.” After him, Rino Rapoli, the scientific coordinator of the MAD Laboratory of Life Sciences in Tuscany, intervened.
“In an emergency such as a pandemic, the most important thing is to send consistent messages. It is important that the public sector and institutions are cohesive and deliver the same message and be able to educate both the participants, the medical community, and the population to understand the importance of vaccination. Roberto Monaco was very good in organizing this moment and bringing everyone together.”
Investing in education, health and science. This is the formula for Filippo Agnelli, President of FNOMCeO. “Our profession is an essential reference point,” but “low investment in healthcare has led us into a difficult situation that, with the pandemic, has caused inconsistency in a system that sees fewer doctors than it should be.”
