HCEU findings presented at ECER in Copenhagen (DK)

Together with Tanja Bacher (3s), Marjan Khobreh (University Siegen) and Dr. Thorsten Dunkel (NABIBB), TU Dresden (Prof. Dr. Sandra Bohlinger and Luisa Kresse) conducted a research workshop on the topic “Reforming Education and the Imperative of Constant Change in the Health Care Sector” at the European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) in Copenhagen (DK). The workshop took place within the network “Vocational Education and Training” on Friday, 25 August 2017.

Within this workshop existing approaches to identify and overcome skills shortages in the health care sector have been discussed and critically reflected. For this reason the projects HCEU (Health Care Europe), Pro-Nursing and No Borders Manual (NoBoMa) have been presented. All projects aim at improving the training of caregivers and the knowledge and quality of tasks that are demanded in this field.
