This project is innovative because it addresses the current training needs of a specific professional sector, this of healthcare professionals through innovative training products and reaching out techniques, namely the InterHealth Curriculum, the InterHealth Mobile Application and the InterHealth Forum. The selection and design of the InterHealth products is based on two criteria which relate to innovation:
- addressing the need for intercultural training of healthcare professionals in a non-formal, experience-based way, an approach that has not systematically been reported until now,
- use of multimedia and more specifically of mobile applications for hands-on and simulation training.
And in this project a special focus is placed on quality assurance
. It is important for the project partners to develop a comprehensive understanding of intercultural competence in the health care sector, and to compare them with practical experience and scientific concepts.
