COMPAS Surveys

Dear patients, your opinion matters!

Please share your ideas and opinion on what makes you feel (un)safe in healthcare as a patient and let patient safety bloom.

The results of the survey are used to evaluate patient safety in the healthcare system from the patient’s point of view. In order to close possible gaps and deal with weaknesses, we would like to develop training modules based on the results. 

 

Dear healthcare professionals, your opinion is needed!

Help us to find out what needs exist regarding patient safety and resilience in healthcare in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. Tell us what topics you would like to learn more about by completing the survey below! 

Based on your input, the Universities of Aachen, Liège and Maastricht develop training modules to improve safe patient care and promote the health of (future) healthcare professionals. 

WPT1 Curriculum mapping and analyzing existing curricula

Lead:
University Hospital Aachen; other partners involved: Liège University Hospital & Maastricht University

Content:
The WPT1 needs analysis will structure current patient safety problems and the current state of competency and educational offerings in this domain. We will compare the current approach to patient safety in the three regions of the EMR with the ideal approach described in the literature and will identify current employments in charge of patient safety and eventual needs of these employments. To continue, we will organize a workshop with experts from international professional associations as well as from the European Patients’ Forum to validate our findings and define the goals and objectives of the COMPAS comprehensive, multiprofessional education and trainings modules on patient safety and maintenance of workforce and resilience (WPT1).

WPT2 Educational methods and blue print

Lead:
Maastricht University; other partners involved: University Hospital Aachen & Liège University Hospital

Content:
In WPT2, we will conduct additional literature research into suitable educational methods, and existing frameworks such as the Multi-professional Patient Safety Curriculum Guide developed by the World Health Organization and existing educational activities in the EMR region and beyond. Furthermore, we will develop a blue print for postgraduate training in patient safety for the EMR and agree on which modules/trainings to design in more detail in the context of the COMPAS project. We will provide guidelines on the use of different educational methods and media to address both theoretical and practical content, as well as on evaluation and evaluation criteria.

WPT3 Development and elaborating of individual trainings and educational framework

Lead:
Liège University Hospital; other partners involved: University Hospital Aachen & Maastricht University

Content:
In WPT3, we will develop a personalized educational framework using simulation with a learner-centered approach and adaptive learning facilitation. This WP will aim at building a personalized portfolio and guide students through their own educational program pathway in order to reach successive specific key-learning objectives and complete their cursus at their own pace. The aim of WPT3 will be that the content will fulfil the public needs in terms of education while respecting all legal and administrative requirements of each partner region/state

WPT4 Maintenance of workforce – error management and resilience

Lead:
University Hospital Aachen; other partners involved: Liège University Hospital & Maastricht University

Content:
In this WP, essential medical training on the topic of resilience to strengthen the workforce in the health care sector will be linked to the labour market. We are applying for a medical position to conduct training on this topic.

WPT5 Pilot study, evaluation and implementation

Lead:
Liège University Hospital; other partners involved: University Hospital Aachen & Maastricht University

Content:
Pilot studies will be organized to test and validate the different training modules. To ensure optimal consideration of target groups' opinions and to meet labour market expectations, an iterative process will be organized. Pilot studies will require a special involvement from simulation centers to develop and test the different modules. The global assessment of the project will be done owing to several steps. Pilot studies will be designed by selecting core educational themes associated to safety in healthcare such as communication, situation awareness or incidence report. Furthermore, prospective evaluation of the pertinence of the educational modules within the cursus will be proposed.
