University Medical Centre in Gdansk, Head of Medical Device Supplies
Plenary - Evolutionary implementation of GS1 standards in a hospital

I've been involved in medicine since 1991. First, I worked as a midwife in the delivery room in the hospital in GdaƄsk for 5 years. Then I earned a Master's degree in Organization and Management at the University of Gdansk. I have been working as a manager of the Medical Supply Department at the University Clinical Center since 2001. I am responsible for organizing the purchase and delivery of medical devices for the Hospital.

In 2012, I started post-graduate studies at the Poznan School of Logistics in the field of logistics. For several years I have been passionate about the subject of automatic identification of medical devices. In November 2018, I received an award from GS1 Poland for the implementation of the GS1 standard in the area of medical devices in our hospital.
