    Client’s Rights to Safe Care and Nursing

    The partnership consists of four social and health care colleges training professionals for care work and nursing. The aim of the partnership is to launch a project "Client's Right to Safe Care and Nursing" and the content of the project is to focus on selected key competenteces that are included in curricula of colleges' qualifications. The competences are broken into 4 working themes: 1) aseptic working, 2) ergonomy, work safety, aids and accessories, 3) communication, respectful and emphatic care for clients and 4) assisting clients in activities of daily life (ADL). Each partner college is responsible for to prepare assignments on one working theme for students to work on and to host a one-week workshop for students and supervising teachers during the project. The work process is based on collaborative learning both prior to workshop week abroad and during the workshop. The prior-to-workshop learning process at colleges focuses on building up presentations on nationally viewed essential skills and knowledge related to the theme of upcoming workshop under guidance of teachers. The communication, instructing and necessary assignments are processed on IT/web-based learning platform Fronter. During workshop-week students give presentations on the theme, elaborate the theme into more practical topics which they will monitor and observe during 2 job-shadowing days at different placement addresses. The workshops end with building up a summary over experinces and observations dealt during the week, all of this under supervision of teachers. Innovation of the partnership lies with collaborative learning process of different countries' students .The collaborative learning: students process together each theme prior-to and during workshop. Coordinator supervises work process.
