End of Period-2017
Our project aimes to offer an attractive up to date interdisciplinary on-line collaborative platform with specific learning tools and content, supporting participants in acquisition of skills in the field of Orthopedy and Traumatology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Develop basics skills for medical specialists in orthopedics and rehabilitation (theoretical and practical skills for assesment, decision, treatment in different pathologies) by inovative on line education and strategic use of ICT-based teaching and assessment practices .Read More
Our up to date interdisciplinary and multilingual e-learning platform includes guidelines for standard protocols in orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation and a large repository of case studies. This will function as an interactive multimedia database system containing full reports on patients receiving orthopedic/rehabilitation treatment - real clinical case studies using digital imaging (Ultrasound, , Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Tomography) and computational gait analysis data.The trainee must choose the right surgical or rehabilitation protocol and adapt them based on the particularities of the case study (patient-focused interventions). Assessment by case studies that must be solved by the trainee in order to get accreditation of competencies is foreseen.
Develop new skills as requested by the labour market - computerized gait analysis .Read More
Development of new techniques must be followed up not only by dissemination, but by offering new solutions for transferring medical knowledge. Normal gait is essential for daily living and the number of pathologies that affect GAIT is INCREASING (accidents, aiging). In orthopedics, in particular after surgery, a long and difficult rehabilitation process follows in order to regain normal gait and requires INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAM approaches. Clinical experience showed that each patient has its own particularities, so standard procedures are not all the time effective and need to be adapted (PATIENT FOCUSED INTERVENTION)
The goal of gait analysis is to provide scientific and clinical insights into both normal and pathological walking so gait abnormalities can be more precisely examined.
Gait analysis is performed within a great range of methods. Most commonly, observational gait analysis is appropriate to characterize most gait pathologies. This approach is sufficient to note gross abnormalities in walking; however, as walking complexity increases with organic pathology, objective analysis by computerized gait analysis becomes necessary,. This procedure has been used to understand the etiology of gait abnormalities and as part of the treatment decision-making in patients with complex walking problems.
Assure the development of high quality work-based VET.Read More
Our Strategic Partnership will support a project-based collaboration between hospitals and HEIs, to develop, test and adapt a continuous VET programme, based on an exhaustive needs analysis and focusing on a “real-life” transnational approach. We aim to stimulate resident learning by new approaches, as the development of an innovative e-training method which is able to provide the trainees with a range of case studies and an advanced training curriculum.
This will function as a virtual medical environment, similar with the work place and help attune curricula to current and emerging labour market needs and equip the specialists with required skills, by developing active cooperation between HEI and partners from outside academia: hospitals, medical centers, research centers. In addition, we hope to stimulate interest in solving clinical problems in the field of orthopaedic surgery and to offer personalised support both for the learners but also for the clients (patients). Implementation of individualised health care approaches is one of the major innovations of this project, encouraging critical thinking of the trainees, reinforced quality of medical services, increasing the level of health care, decreasing the rehabilitation time and health costs, development of inter-sectoral and international collaborative cultures by sharing of knowledge and ideas from teaching to work-place.
Enhance digital integration in medical learning, teaching, training by promoting access to and learning through Open Educational Resources that will support ICT-based teaching and training, as well as ICT-based assessment practices.Read More
In our project we intend to use innovative and learner-centred pedagogical approaches, supporting trainers and educational staff in acquiring and improving the use of ICT for learning and related digital competences; promoting OER in different languages; supporting digital content of training. The training material will be accessed via a standard web browser, which provides an integrated multilingual on-line learning environment. The presentation tier is adapted to include additional data provided by specific modern investigation methods, including medical imaging, video files of motion analysis, graphs of forces, muscle and joint reactions, numerical data, contact pressure diagrams, etc.
Assessment will be done by multiple choice test and case studies that will be solved by the trainees. Interactivity allows trainees to test their knowledge and provides immediate feedback using images and cases that they could encounter in clinical practice. In this way educators will no longer serve mainly as the distributors of content, but will become facilitators of learning; learners will have control over content, learning sequence, pace of learning, time, and often media, allowing them to tailor their experiences to meet their personal learning objectives.
