Multi-Professional Cooperation in Stroke Management

when 2 July 2012 - 13 July 2012
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 ECTS
fee EUR 775

Multi-professional cooperation becomes increasingly important in the healthcare sector. Effective coordination and collaboration amongst practitioners is vital to the delivery of good care to patients with a complex pattern of symptoms. In the future more patients will suffer from chronic, and in many cases complex, illnesses. So, cooperation between professionals is going to become more and more necessary.

This course creates a learning situation in which multi-professional cooperation can be practiced by students from different faculties and subjects, working together on the same cases – especially, the treatment of patients after stroke (cerebral vascular accident, CVA).

The aim of the course is to familiarise students with the preparation and conduct of multi-professional or multidisciplinary interaction with a view to producing a treatment or care plan.

Students will learn not just to look beyond the boundaries of their own profession, but even across national borders, as the course takes the form of a summer school and is open to international participants.
