MULTIPLIER EVENTS

SEMINAR ON THE RESULTS OF A PROJECT

When: 17.04.2021                                                     

On April 17, 2021 from 14.00 to 15.45 in the remote form using information technology took place a seminar presenting the results of the project „Development of innovative training solutions in the field of functional evaluation aimed at updating of the curricula of health sciences schools”. The organizer of the workshop was the Silesian University of Technology and the event was held under the patronage of JM Rector of Bydgoszcz University of Science and Technology.
PhD Joanna Bartnicka – International TEACH Project Manager and Professor Magdalena Hagner-Derengowska – Vice-Chancellor of Bydgoszcz University of Technology and Rector’s Plenipotentiary for Physiotherapy at Bydgoszcz University of Technology welcomed the invited guests, speakers and seminar participants.
The substantive part of the workshop consisted of four lecture panels and a discussion panel.
The first lecture on „Physiotherapy for the elderly” was given by Prof. Magdalena Hagner-Derengowska. The second lecture on the topic: „Care of persons with mobility dysfunctions” was given by PhD Katarzyna Rzepka, Plenipotentiary of the Rector for the Nursing Department at the Medical University of Warsaw. Another person who gave a presentation entitled. Another person who gave a presentation on „Accessibility of health services for people with disabilities” was Associate Professor Zdzisława Kalisz Rector’s Plenipotentiary for Dietetics, Cosmetology, Public Health.
The lectures presented an interdisciplinary approach within the framework of a holistic approach to patient diagnosis, with particular emphasis on physical, cognitive and social aspects, as well as an integrated approach to functional evaluation in elderly people based on the latest results of world scientific research. On the basis of the lectures we have listened to, it can be clearly stated that the subject of functional evaluation is increasingly included in the curricula of medical universities, which forces the teachers to seek knowledge in this area at the highest possible level and to look for teaching materials developed in a modern form both for students and the teacher. Therefore, the TEACH course developed as part of the project comprehensively covers a wide spectrum of requirements for health science teachers in order to adequately teach students of medical professions, which was further emphasised by Joanna Bartnicka in her lecture entitled „Presentation of the TEACH course and discussion of the course’s content”. Joanna Bartnicka in her lecture entitled „Presentation of the TEACH course and discussion on the conditions of participation”.
The lecture part was followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Joanna Bartnicka. During the discussion the participants could ask questions about the lectures and exchange their opinions, experiences and observations concerning the educational needs of physiotherapists, both during their studies and professional practice.
To sum up, the seminar was an interesting event with high scientific and content-related level. Moreover, it was educational for both the participants and the organizers and allowed to understand the needs and expectations concerning the adaptation and modernization of curricula in medical schools, as well as confirmed the need for unification of curricula and teaching results in European countries.
The seminar was attended by 262 persons. The seminar participants were mainly students of physiotherapy, public health, nursing, dietetics and academic teachers conducting didactic classes in physiotherapy and health sciences. Moreover, the seminar was attended by physiotherapists who run their own physiotherapy service business, physiotherapists who work in hospitals, representatives of the private sector dealing with training, representatives of medical universities in Poland
The representatives of medical universities in Poland, e.g: Silesian Medical University in Katowice, Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz, Bydgoszcz University, Colegium Medicum of Nicolaus Copernicus University as well as private persons.
Participation in the workshops was free of charge.

To sum up, the discussion was of an educational nature for both participants and organizers and allowed to understand the needs and expectations regarding the adaptation and modernization of curricula in medical schools, and also emphasized the need to unify curricula and learning outcomes in European countries. In addition, the workshop was a cognitively interesting event and maintained a high scientific and substantive level.

139 people took part in the workshop. The workshop participants were mainly physiotherapy students and academic teachers conducting didactic classes in the field of physiotherapy and health sciences. Participation in the workshop was free.

The workshop was followed by a meeting of an expert group chaired by dr inż. Joanna Bartnicka – coordinator of the international TEACH project. The debate was attended by representatives of the academic community, experts in the field of biomechanics and the security of social engineering systems, who share their experiences and the effects of many years of practice have contributed to the fact that the conclusions drawn have been included in the project materials.
