21st Century Skills for Healthcare Professionals

This multi-professional course is intended for students in nursing, physiotherapy, medicine, allied health care workers, and many others fields, who want to develop new skills and work in an international context. The course is organised by the Institute for Nursing Studies and the Institute for Physiotherapy, UASU Utrecht. We will focus on themes as rehabilitation, technology, mental and social health, innovation and designing. These topics will be discussed in a multi-disciplinary working environment.

Note: We are very grateful that we received so many applications from Singapore. To ensure the intercultural learning experiences, we highly recommend further students from Singapore to apply for one of our other healthcare courses.

Healthy Aging

This course will inform you, from different perspectives, about the factors that keep older people healthy and enable them to continue to participate in society. We will focus on a better understanding of the aging process, the prevention of functional decline and preservation of autonomy. Different excursions will let you experience getting older. Prior to the course, you will be given an assignment to conduct a life review with an elderly person (65+) and which will be presented during the course.

Depression Management and Suicide Prevention

Our aim is to provide you with the latest evidence, knowledge and skills in the area of depression management and suicide prevention. Both are highly prevalent worldwide but they can be prevented and treated with a multidisciplinary approach. In this summer school course we will address the holistic and evidence based modalities to prevent adverse incidents, foster harm reduction and increase the quality of life of patients and family having problems with mood disorders and/or self-destructive behaviour.

Interprofessional Collaboration in Stroke Management

In this summer course you will work in interprofessional groups (e.g. medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, psychology, physiotherapy, speech-language therapy, social work). You will start from your own profession and knowledge of diagnosis and treatment of the problems of patients after a stroke. Afterwards, you will learn how to prepare and participate in interprofessional discussions and rounds. During the course you will enlarge your knowledge about stroke and other professions. For this we use the ICF-system (International classification of functioning, disability and health). Before the start of the Summer School there will be up to 60 hours of preparatory assignments.
