EURASHE is a partner in the IMPACCT (IMproving PAtient-centered Communication Competences) project.

Underneath are further information on:

The main objective of IMPACCT (IMproving PAtient-centered Communication Competences) is “to improve the relevance and quality of education of medical and nursing students in Europe through the development, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of an evidence-based Health Literacy Educational Program. The educational program will consist of a set of about 20 learning units. Taken together, these units reflect the fact that a comprehensive approach is needed to tackle health literacy problems. To enhance the health and well-being of people with low health literacy, students need a wide range of health literacy competences related to clinical competences (e.g. diagnosing among people with low health literacy), but also competences for communication, collaboration, leadership or quality assurance, to prevent health literacy related problems. Watch the short video below to get a well rounded impression of the project.
