On 2nd and 3rd July 2018, the Enhance consortium held its second project meeting in Figuiera da Foz, Portugal.
The main scope of the ENhANCE (EuropeaN curriculum for fAmily aNd Community nurse) project is to bridge the gap between the skills currently offered to the nurses working in public health care and those actually demanded by both public health care institutions and private service providers when applying innovative healthcare models centered on PHC.
To do so, the project will design a EU Curriculum for Family and Community Nurses (FCNs) based on WHO (World Health Organisation) and EU recommendations which could play a reference role at European level. The EU Curriculum will be accompanied by a set of Guidelines supporting VET designers in its localization and adaptation.
EASPD will provide the perspective of service providers in the definition of the professional profile and the development of the curriculum in order to reduce the identified skill gaps.
