Patient flyer for workshop at GMA conference 2013

  1. 1. Patient Project: Improving the continuity of patient care through novel teaching and learning facilities for handover procedures in medical higher education. What is the Patient Project? Partners • Open University of the Netherlands, CELSTEC • University College Cork, School of Medicine • RWTH Aachen University, AIXTRA • Fundacion Avedis Donabedian • MT Consulting GmbH • Associated Partners: • Die Arbeiterwohlfahrt • University of Alcala • The European Patients Forum (EPF) The World Health Organization lists ineffective handovers that lead to patient harm as one of its High 5 patient safety risks. PATIENT addresses this challenge by using innovative learning approaches with mobile devices to enable authentic skill development for the workplace. Improperly conducted handovers lead to wrong treatment, delays in medical diagnosis, life threatening adverse events, increased health care expenditures, increased hospital length of stay that impact the patient, their family and the entire health system. The PATIENT Consortium is hosting a workshop on “Standardized medical handover – How to learn, teach and implement?” at the annual conference of the Gesellschaft für Medizinische Ausbildung (Association of Medical Education) in Graz, Austria. The workshop will focus on several standardized tools for giving a medical handover, with an emphasis on teaching and learning. Participants will also discuss feasible options for implementing handover courses within given curricula. The Workshop will take place on Friday, 27.09.2013: 8:30
  2. 2. lorem ipsum dolor issue, date Patient Project The PATIENT project builds on EU funded work on developing handover training the FP7 HANDOVER project (FP7-HEALTH- F2-2008-223409). Experiences and insights of medical trainers, experts in handover, doctors and nurses from the EU and beyond, were utilized to design a learning environment, the HANDOVER Toolbox, conducive to training and learning around handover processes. In the PATIENT project the HANDOVER Toolbox is combined with multiple mobile applications. One of these apps is the CLAS app a mobile application to structure handover processes between different medical departments as well as hospitals and General Practitioners (GPs). The PATIENT project seeks to further our knowledge of the merits of implementing highly innovative learning environments (Toolbox) that offer sophisticated ICT tools (CLAS mobile application), to enhance interaction between students, teachers, researchers and patients. We encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas to increase awareness, understanding and pioneering solutions for this important global issue. The primary objective of the PATIENT project is implementing the handover study module for undergraduate medical students on a European scale. The target study module will take advantage of innovative teaching and learning methods to improve handover procedures. The module will combine formal, informal, problem and role-based learning scenarios in simulation settings. It will take advantage of the HANDOVER Toolbox, the CLAS mobile application, and others apps as a common denominator to standardize the handover training. Web: Facebook: Twitter: E-mail: The PATIENT project contributes new insights and scientific knowledge by bringing together centres of excellence, hospitals, and SMEs from across the EU to undertake research and cooperation activities. The specific aims include to: 1. Share knowledge and facilitate existing and new European networks particularly in relation to initiatives in innovative medical education 2. Encourage shared innovative practice in handover practice. 3. Link research, education and innovation. 4. Promote research excellence and outputs, enabling international research community and peer-review.
