Culture in healing – Healing in culture @ Budapest, Hungary @ Semmelweis University, Faculty of Health Sciences
Dec 13 @ 00:00 – Dec 15 @ 00:00

Culture in healing – Healing in culture
Intercultural conflicts in healthcare

Aims and rationale of the workshop
The quality of the relation connecting the health worker to the patient is an important element of the healing process. The cultural distance separating the two often creates an invisible bias producing unnecessary tensions, compromising successful patient- professional cooperation. Minorities and migrants are often cited as obvious examples of cultural otherness; it is less readily recognised that patients coming simply from different social contexts than that of the majority population might also pose problems to the medical system.

 

The aim of the seminar is: to introduce and discuss a method based on the work of French social psychologist Margalit Cohen- Emerique to increase self-consciousness and self-reflection of health professionals being able to cope with intercultural issues. A conceptional framework and important keys will be given to understand better cultural patterns different from theirs, in order to render their work more efficient and less contentious.

IPPE (Interdisciplinary Programme on Palliative and End-of-Life care) @ Ghent, Belgium
Jan 15 all-day

The Programme ‘Interdisciplinary Programme on Palliative and end-of-life care’ has been developed in cooperation between 7 European Universities and UCONN, University of Connecticut, US. The opportunity of benefiting from the expertise of European and American universities and health care
services is definitely an unique chance to broaden the professional perspective and will be an eye-opener in working with other cultures. We are convinced that the possibility of meeting and studying with different international students will be an experience never to be forgotten.
In January 2018 the project will be organized in two parts: preparatory work and an Intensive Programme in Ghent, Belgium.
The exact date is not known as yet but will be adapted in due course.

In order to give you an idea of what this IPPE programme entails, you will find the IPPE Study guide and Welcome Letter from IPPE 2017.

International Week: Challenge your borders @ HAN, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Feb 6 @ 00:00 – Feb 8 @ 00:00

We warmly invite you and your colleagues to participate in our 6th International Week, organised by the Faculty of  Health and Social Studies of HAN University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands. This week will be held from Tuesday 6 to Thursday 8 February 2018 at the HAN campus in Nijmegen. The aim of the International Week is sharing experiences, practices and knowledge between students and lecturers in the international context of Health and Social Work.

This year’s general theme is Challenge your borders. Health and Social Work in international perspective.

Topics for workshops, panels and presentations may include, but are not limited to:

–          Healthy communities

–          Interprofessional collaboration

–          Globalisation, migration and refugees

–          Intercultural communication

–          Community development

–          Public health

 

The programme

The main target group of International Week are our second year students of the Bachelor programme courses of the Faculty of Health and Social Studies. The programme includes a wide range of educational activities such as panel presentations, seminars, round table sessions and (creative) workshops. A special one day-programme will be organised for (visiting) lecturers and master students.

 

Your contribution/call for participation

We are looking for inspiring ideas and ‘good practices’ within the theme that will help students reflect on their roles as health/social workers. We encourage our students to be eager to learn and view developments in health and social work in an international perspective.  We kindly ask all contributors to be as interactive, practical and creative as possible. Our suggestion is to start with examples from professional practice and link those to the theory. This approach helps students relate to the material.

If you would like to contribute to the International Week, please complete the participation form. We will respond to your proposal. Due to the large number of participants (about 1.000 students), the programme will consist of parallel sessions. We may therefore ask you to repeat your contribution a number of times during the conference.

We expect you to arrange your own funding for participation (f.i. through Erasmus staff mobility) , however we have a limited budget available for reimbursement of travel expenses.

 

Deadline for submission October 15, 2017

 

Network opportunities
The International Week gives lecturers and students the opportunity to meet international colleagues and discuss the latest developments in the profession and in education. During the week we organise several lunch and dinner meetings, to give you the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and to expand your international network.
