CPD Course Module Development

SUSWELL assumes a necessary change in the organisation and positioning of the care for health, it’s accompanying care systems and the role taken by the involved stakeholders, from the professional to the patient. This includes higher education institutes.

Our consortium agreed that continuous professional development (CPD) courses are an effective tool to support the shift towards a systems perspective and to bridge the learning from local communities of practice with the existing formal education systems in Kosovo and Russia.

CPD is understood as a lifelong learning process that addresses the educational needs of individuals. It is important as it helps to ensure that further learning is progressed in a structured, practical and relevant way. And it allows an individual to focus on what specific skills and knowledge they require over a manageable period.

Through a learner-centred approach, CPD is essential to the delivery of safe and effective healthcare by all health and social care professionals. Variety in learning formats and methods ensure the applicability of the learning for the settings in practice.

Therefore, it is a main objective of SUSWELL to develop evidence-based and relevant CPD training modules for (future) health professionals. The aim is to enhance lifelong learning and to improve the skills and competences of students and health and social care professionals across the different fields of health and well-being. The course modules’ scope ranges between EQF 4 and EQF 7 and covers 5 ECTS each.
