Project Duration: March 2023 to March 2026
The DigiCanTrain project, led by Turku University of Applied Sciences (Turun Ammattikorkeakoulu), aims to up-skilling and re-skilling the health care workforce in the cancer care setting, which then, in return, support the development of effective, person-centred health care, digital cancer care services and the use of contemporary eHealth technology by the HCPs. The DigiCanTrain project also shapes the lifelong learning dimension in higher education (EQF levels 6-8) by integrating micro-credentials to accompany ECTS and CME credit systems.
The DigiCanTrain project aims to design, pilot, and evaluate DigiCanTrain education and training programme for trainers, clinical and non-clinical HCPs. The ultimate goal is to improve access to continuing professional education, increase digital skills, and the use of eHealth technology
of clinical and non-clinical health care professionals working with people affected by cancer.
ECO will establish with Turku UAS the project's advisory board, coordinate one submodule of the DigiCanTrain programme, and act as a consult in need of other modules. ECO also has an important role in identifying and inviting significant stakeholders to the DigiCanTrain Forum and communicating, disseminating, and exploiting the project results.
