About the project
The project aims to improve patient safety, increase the knowledge and skills of professionals and lay people, their competencies and efficiency in dealing with certain life-threatening situations. Most medical teams in Slovenia, Croatia and N. Macedonia encounter a critically ill or injured patient only a few times a year. Education in the SIM centre gives them theopportunity to face a vitally endangered patient and rare situations in the clinical environment.
Purpose is to establish a competency-based sustainable system of education with simulations in primary care that will enhance the safety of patient management. We will focus on priority of interregional cooperation, with three participating countries (Slovenia, Croatia, and N.Macedonia). Educational programs will be adapted to regional features and possibilities.
Slovenia is at the bridge between the north-west and the south-east of Europe. Its excellent and long-standing professional and academic links with relevant institutions provide a good opportunity for partnerships also in the field of training with simulations and for building a successful network and capacity.
Four partners from three countries: Community Health Centre Ljubljana, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, University of Zagreb and Health Centre Zagreb.
