Reinforcement of the Framework for Experiential Education in Healthcare in Serbia
Date du début: 15 oct. 2015, Date de fin: 14 oct. 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Contemporary health professionals education is determined by the rapid knowledge growth in biomedical sciences, status of regulated profession and demand for experiential and interprofessional teaching and learning as foundation for collaborative practice in patient centred care. Educational reforms must address the community health needs. Health professionals’ education and healthcare system in Serbia is struggling to keep up with global developments. In the recent WHO evaluation of the organization and provision of primary care in Serbia, low level of structured cooperation and team work has been reported. Status of regulated profession brings additional responsibility to higher education institutions and national regulatory bodies. EU Directive 2013/55 gives general requirement for clinical experience as integrated part of undergraduate studies. This request is partially addressed in the health sciences curricula at RS universities, with situation being the most critical in pharmacy where practical placement is organized mainly through pre-registration year following five-year didactic curriculum. To become compliant with the relevant EU practice, and implement advanced teaching and learning methods, explicit capacity building is need at the institutional and regulatory level. The key project outputs are: (i) modernization of experiential education (students’ professional practice) in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing; (ii) introduction of interprofessional education, and (iii) teaching competencies development of academic staff and clinical supervisors. The focus is on improved competencies of health science graduates and teaching staff, with emphasis on transversal skills and leadership.Strengthen links between academia and health institutions will promote curricular updates in line with societal needs and employers expectations. Partnership with EU institutions will contribute to increased academic mobility and promote internationalization of EHEA.
