Interdisciplinary Programme on Palliative and end-of-life care (IPPE) 17.01.-29.01.2010


With this module an international and interdisciplinary intensive programme focusing on Palliative and end-of-life Care is delivered. It focuses on End-of-life issues and wants to meet the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and practical needs of clients and caregivers. 
The opportunity of benefiting from the expertise of seven European countries and institutions (Gent-Belgium, Athens-Greece, Vilnius-Lithuania, Oslo-Norway, Tallinn-Estonia, Setubal-Portugal, and Prague-Czech Republic) gives a unique chance to broaden up the professional perspective on this topic and will be an eye-opener in the work with other cultures. The delivery of the module has been set up with the help of palliative organisations in Flanders.
In order to approve the competences of the care-givers and providers of health care services, this module focus on an interdisciplinary and holistic approach. The challenge faced by health care is breaking through boundaries between various disciplines and foster an interdisciplinary approach. The module is organised as a meeting platform for all professionals and students of the different health care departments and medical faculties. It reflects our aim to offer higher education from an international, intercultural, interdisciplinary and innovative point of view.
