Over the next 3 years the project, supported by the European Union’s
INTERREG IVA 2 Seas programme, will enable students and care providers
in health and social care organizations to improve dignity and patient centered
care. It will provide access to experience based learning in the sTimul
care-ethics facilities and help participants from the different areas learn
from each other.
The project will support 24 separate training courses run in both sTimul sites
providing intensive learning opportunities for around 400 participants from
the four partner regions. This is a learning project where the results of the
evaluation will improve training and practice delivery.
