Multi-Professional Cooperation in Stroke Management
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.
Students in the second or third year of the study in the field of Cesar Therapy, Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Social work or Speech-Language Pathology
One competency is central in this curriculum: the ability to prepare, conduct and evaluate multidisciplinary interaction (MDI).
That should result in:
1. a multiprofessional assessment or treatment plan;
2. a coherent referrals policy within the care chain;
3. an information plan.
