International Module on Paediatric Rehabiliation
Sep 9 all-day

This programme will be organised in 2018.
The exact date is not known as yet but will be adapted in due course.

In order to give you an idea of what ‘International Module on Paediatric Rehabiliation’ entails, you will find the manual from 2017 below.

Irrespective of the Bachelor and Master programmes currently offered in the participating institutions,
there was a need to develop and identify a dedicated interdisciplinary module dealing with a specialised
approach in Paediatric rehabilitation.

The students will experience issues of Paediatric Rehabilitation from the perspective of other
countries and cultures particularly those countries within the European Union. It is the purpose to
develop and exchange expertise, especially on the rehabilitation of children within the acute hospital
and inclusion in society.

The course focuses on interdisciplinary work. More and more professionalism and teamwork are
becoming extremely important. One of the main assumptions in this project is the use of an
interdisciplinary approach that reflects on cooperation between the different professions in health
care.

In this way the module is not only focussing on the exchange of information, but also on the
teamwork in mixed interdisciplinary teams. Students and staff will especially appreciate this
approach as valuable.

This module on Paediatric Rehabilitation reflects the specific aims of the partners in extending the
internationalisation of students’ understanding in this area. The programme has an international
dimension aimed at broadening the knowledge of students beyond that, which is to be gained from
the academic programme at their home country.

It offers students the possibility to meet other students from different countries and to exchange
ideas in different professional fields within health care.

The students will foster a mutual respect of the views of others, through questioning stereotypes on
professions and cultures, and make sound judgements based on reliable information.
