SEMINAR ON THE RESULTS OF A PROJECT

                                                   

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.

RESULTS OF THE FIRST STAGE

As part of the first stage of the project work, research and information necessary to create the training material were carried out. Each project partner conducted a survey among the relevant target users in their countries using:

  1. Group focus with external experts to determine the preferences of the target group.
  2. Questionnaires to detect the training needs of potential stakeholders. Questionnaires were disseminated via an open online survey platform.

Thank you to all participants and institutions participating in the research.

We are currently working on developing the curriculum and creating a training platform.

TEACH  PROJECT: RESULTS OF THE MIDTERM MEETING

This week the Midterm meeting of the TEACH project (Erasmus + program) was held, in which the project coordinator, Silesian University of Technology (SUT, Poland), participated together with the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV, Spain), Universitat de València (UV, Spain) and the Association of Medical Schools in Europe (AMSE, Germany).

In this meeting they have dealt with issues related to the work done so far, mainly with the organization of discussion groups and the generation of a specific survey, activities aimed at detecting training needs on biomechanical analysis in the university context, specifically in the sanitary branch. In this way, needs and preferences have been identified in relation to the biomechanical training of various teachers from universities throughout Europe, through collaboration with AMSE, SUT and the UV’s School of Medicine.

In addition, during the meeting the structure and content of the training materials to be developed within the framework of the project were exposed. On the other hand, different aspects related to the dissemination of the project, exploitation and quality have been commented.

The Erasmus + TEACH project will provide free access teaching materials for the generation of training activities in biomechanical assessment in medical schools. Currently, biomechanical assessment its used as a complementary test in different fields of medicine: rehabilitation, occupational medicine, assessment of bodily harm or process management, among others, assuming significant savings in health, economic and social resources.

However, this discipline is not usually part of the training curricula in the European Schools of Medicine and university professors do not have experience or teaching materials, so that graduates in Medicine finish their studies without the necessary training to perform and interpret this type of evidence.

Therefore, the goal of TEACH project is that five years after it concludes, the European labour market can have the first promotion of graduates in medicine trained in biomechanical assessment.
