EFQUEL seminar

I recently heard about an interesting seminar being organised by the EFQUEL(European Foundation for Quality in eLearning) in the Healthcare sector which has a working group of healthcare organisations all around Europe aiming to promote excellence and innovation in this strategic sector.

The event will be held on 16th May 2007 at The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Sheffield Hallam University, Broomgrove Rd., Sheffield, UK.

The meeting aims at bringing members of the WG and experts from the Fields of technology, education and training, research, industry and Governmental organisations together to discuss the Action Plan of the WG and the results after one and half year of activities.

The meeting themes are:

Theme 1: best experiences/practices of application of the quality system
(e.g. EFQM/ISO, Quality Mark of EFQUEL) in healthcare sector.

Theme 2: Innovate training and learning methods in healthcare system
(e.g. Food Safety, Clinical Audit, Patient e-Education)

Theme 3: Enhancing the Intellectual Human capital of the practitioners
And professionals in the healthcare system

The international seminar aims to promote the vision on the role of technology in promoting lifelong learning, innovation and desirable change in the healthcare sector.

The seminar themes are:

Theme 1: State of e-learning in Europe

Theme 2: Developing within e-learning in healthcare services

Theme 3: Quality Assurance Framework
