No Synopsis    
Title 7th NPM Workshop focusing on the ''roles and competences for doctors associated with the European NPMs'' on 14-15 December 2011 in Warsaw, Poland.  
Description During their preventive visits to various types of places of deprivation of liberty the National Preventive Mechanisms against Torture (NPMs) run into a host of medical issues. In the context of the ''European NPM Project'' (a branch of the Peer-to-Peer II Project, co-funded by a CoE-EU JP and the HRTF) they have asked to be offered speedy and pragmatic guidance on such issues. In response to that request an Independent Medical Advisory Panel (IMAP) is being set up, composed of a small number (7) of eminent medical experts who have long-standing (CPT, SPT, other) experience in conducting preventive visits to places of deprivation of liberty. With the help of the IMAP a specific branch of the European NPM Project dedicated to medical concerns is being pu in place.
The workshop will be co-organised with the European NPM Project's Independent Medical Advisory Panel (IMAP)
