  • PROJECT 4 – BleClirc – BLENDED LEARNING CLINICAL REASONING COURSE 
  • PROJECT 5 – Identify the needed competences for Health Care Professionals as “virtualists”

Facilitation of Learning WG and Research WG are working together on a new project to explore needed competences to work with our patients in an online and real time setting. The main goal is to develop a competency framework and create appropriate education.

Due to Covid19, at a professional level there has been an increment in the provision of healthcare at distance and an exponential growth of virtual teaching and virtual interactions on an educational level. Professionals have adapted their way of interacting with patients online by trial and error. Therefore, there is a demand on identifying competencies required and developing focused courses addressing these for healthcare professionals as “virtualists”.

The aim of this survey is to identify the needed competences for Health Care Professionals as “virtualists”. The questions have been developed following the physiotherapeutic process (patient history/anamnesis, assessment, treatment and patient education).

We are asking you for feedback about specific knowledge, attitude and skills needed when interacting with our patients in an online and real time setting. If you have any additional questions you wish to add, there is space to so at the end of the survey.

Deadline to answer the survey is by 15th of June. Your input is valuable for the development for needed competences for Health Care Professionals as “virtualists”. Thank you for taking the time (approx. 10 minutes) to complete this survey. You can go to the form by clicking the following link: https://forms.gle/WchoZoKLinEkZAzp8
