SECOND MICE-ICU PROJECT MILESTONE REACHED: E-learning Course on Multicultural Care in ICU available from October 2018
The Erasmus+ project ‘Multicultural Care in European Intensive Care Units’ – MICE-ICU (2016– 2018) was initiated with the aim to develop a specialist multicultural course for ICU Nurses.
The project involved more than 500 nursing colleagues who analysed the intercultural training needs and competencies of European ICU nurses. On this basis they developed an elearning course on multicultural care dedicated to nurses working in intensive care environments.
The course was tested by 120 volunteers, intensive care colleagues from all over Europe, who agreed to work on this within the last weeks.
The analysis of the testing phase shows that European nursing care providers who participated and finished the course assessed it positively; the course increased their knowledge of multi-cultural competences and we can conclude that they have accepted it as a new way of life-long education.
The three course modules itself offer sound information about cultural awareness and sensitivity, culturally diverse patients in health care environments and deals with specific situations when caring for culturally diverse patients on ICU.
The participants will learn about the philosophical, ethical, legal and professional basis justifying non-discrimination principle regarding culturally diverse Patients, explains concepts of culture and ethnic minority, the different approaches to health and sickness by cultures, patterns of interpersonal communication, spiritual and religious expectations/practices intercultural care in boundary situations in ICU.
The European federation of Critical Care Nurses associations (EfCCNa), one of the strategic partners in this project, strongly recommends the syllabus and the course to all critical care colleagues in Europe as a great opportunity for real interactive e-learning.
From October 2018 the course is available on the MICE-ICU website https://lms.mice-icu.eu
Nasilające się na świecie procesy migracji ludności stawiają coraz to nowe wyzwania przed systemami opieki zdrowotnej. Pracownicy ochrony zdrowia są coraz bardziej świadomi trudności napotykanych podczas świadczenia usług zdrowotnych populacji kulturowo i rasowo zróżnicowanej oraz konieczności podnoszenia wiedzy i umiejętności, pozwalających na sprawowanie opieki kompetentnej kulturowo.
