Massive open online courses with videos for palliative clinical field and intercultural and multilingual medical communication
Date du début: 1 sept. 2014, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Palliative care must be an integral part of a country’s health care system, and as such it must be an element of comprehensive health care plans, and of specific programmes concerning, for instance, cancer, Aids or geriatrics. On the basis of a needs assessment, national or regional governments need to design and implement comprehensive rational palliative care strategies in close collaboration with professionals and patients and families, or their representatives. The aim of the project is to create open digital educational resources in the field of palliative medicine based on developing innovative guidelines on standardized fundamental medical manoeuvres and clinical language and communication skills for supporting the learning/teaching processes of the medical lecturers, of the language teachers who teach medical students, of medical students, and of the lay people involved in causalities. By doing this the project aims to harmonise the curricula transversally, helping students in preclinical years to develop applied skills that will be further supported academically by knowledge gained though academic progress in the coming clinical years. Academic, scientific, and professional skills will be acquired in an interdisciplinary manner with support offered concertedly by the palliative medical subjects and the languages and communication subjects. This general aim will be achieved through these specific objectives: - Promote stronger coherence between different EU and national transparency and recognition tools and ensure that skills are recognised across borders by identifying, defining and standardizing the palliative medical and nursing skills, which allow students across Europe to be active participants in clinical routine after their first year of medical studies. - Improve the level of key competences and skills, with particular regard to their relevance for the labour market (everyday medical practice), through strengthened cooperation between the world of education and training and the world of work; - Improve the teaching and learning of languages and promote the EU's broad linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness - Develop innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning and eLearning materials which support students both during their skills training and their practical module - Foster quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalisation at the level of education and training institutions, in particular through enhanced transnational cooperation between education and training providers and other stakeholders - Facilitate the exchange, flow and co-creation of knowledge Throughout its activities, the Palliative Care MOOC project addresses and have a consistent impact on its direct target groups: - Lecturers & students in medicine (Medical Universities) - (Foreign) in-service medical staff - Social assistants or other staff dealing with palliative care(hospitals/hospices/homecare) - Language teachers/trainers in medical institutions - Volunteers (Volunteering bodies) - Educational centres - Companies active in social corporate responsibility Main project products (outputs) will be: O1 - Specialized research of medical literature and practice about palliative care O2 - Project website O3 - Guide of operational procedures on palliative medicine O4 - Quality Assurance and Validation of the protocols on operational procedures on palliative medicine in the world of work O5 - Video support for protocols generated O6 - Medical communication linguistic resources O7 - Palliative Care MOOC on palliative medical procedures and medical communication, in 6 languages O8 - Trainer’s Transversal Kit – palliative and linguistic fields O9 - Exploitation and Sustainability of the project The Palliative Care MOOC project will help medical staff, students and language teachers manage the environment successfully (medical situations) by ensuring sustainable medical courses on operational procedures in palliative care, in 6 language contexts that result in good health outcomes for patients and greater professional satisfaction for all the actors involved in a medical situation across Europe.
