Nasce il Laboratorio Italia-Brasile su formazione, ricerca e pratica in Salute Collettiva PDF Print E-mail
News - Ultime

 

Esito positivo per la settimana "Strumenti e metodi a confronto tra Emilia-Romagna e Brasile per la salute e il benessere delle comunità locali", organizzata dal 10 al 14 febbraio dall'Agenzia Sanitaria e Sociale Regionale (ASSR) e dal Centro di Salute Internazionale (CSI) dell’Università di Bologna.

Nel corso di due eventi plenari e di sei workshop paralleli, che hanno visto la partecipazione di una nutrita delegazione brasiliana e di numerosi operatori, ricercatori e studenti dell’area della salute provenienti dalla nostra e da altre regioni, i lavori si sono sviluppati all’intersezione degli ambiti accademico, dei servizi, della comunità (anche nelle sue rappresentanze istituzionali).

All’insegna del coinvolgimento di diverse discipline (salute collettiva, medicina generale, antropologia medica tra le altre) e professionalità (mediche e delle professioni sanitarie, dei servizi sociali, delle pratiche corporee, ecc.), numerosi luoghi della Regione si sono aperti diventando palestre di riflessione congiunta. A ReggioEmilia si è discusso di formazione permanente (anche) come strategia di valutazione e miglioramento dei servizi, a Copparo (FE) la Casa della Salute è stata la sede di un confronto sui nuovi modelli di attenzione primaria integrata, a Casalecchio, Cervia e Lugo l’esperienza del Community Lab si è prestata a una riflessione sul tema della partecipazione in salute.

 

Al termine della settimana, che ha previsto anche momenti di coordinamento strategico, è stata annunciata la creazione del “Laboratorio Italia-Brasile su formazione, ricerca e pratica in Salute Collettiva” che, oltre all’ASSR e al CSI, comprende il Dipartimento di Filosofia, Scienze Sociali, Umane e della Formazione dell’Università di Perugia e, sul fronte brasiliano, un network di collaborazione tra Ministero della Salute e numerose università del Paese (Rede Governo Colaborativo em Saúde) nonché nuclei di ricerca in salute a livello sia accademico sia di istituzioni statali e federali. Scopo del laboratorio è sperimentare e confrontare - attraverso scambi di evidenze, persone e pratiche - approcci di ricerca-azione e formazione-intervento nell’ambito della salute, e in particolare della primary health care. Il Laboratorio sarà anche la sede per una progettazione comune di interventi da proporre nell’ambito dei finanziamenti europei per la ricerca, con l’obiettivo ambizioso di contribuire a orientarne le priorità anche verso l’area delle cure primarie e della salute sul territorio, a oggi poco considerata a fronte di investimenti che premiano un approccio alla salute tecnologico, specialistico e ‘brevettabile’.

Nel corso della settimana è stato anche firmato un accordo di cooperazione tra Regione Emilia-Romagna (Assessorato Politiche per la salute), Departamento de Atenção Básica (DAB) del Ministero della Salute brasiliano e Rede Governo Colaborativo em Saúde, che garantisce al neonato Laboratorio - come ad altre possibili iniziative di cooperazione - il quadro istituzionale necessario a una piena operatività.

 

Prossima tappa della collaborazione sarà Fortaleza, dove dal 10 al 13 aprile prossimi si svolgerà l’XI Congresso Internazionale della Rede Unida, associazione brasiliana che riunisce progetti, istituzioni e persone interessate alla formazione dei professionisti nell’ottica del rafforzamento di sistemi sanitari equi, efficaci e a forte partecipazione sociale. Al congresso, in reprocità e continuità con quanto accaduto a febbraio, parteciperà una delegazione emiliano-romagnola articolata tra rappresentanti del mondo accademico, dei servizi e del governo regionale, al fine di proseguire la collaborazione già avviata con successo verso la definizione di un piano di lavoro congiunto.

Summer School
Towards a right to health without borders
Interdisciplinary approaches for social change (RHEACH)

Izmir (Turkey), 8th - 18th July 2014



COURSE OVERVIEW

WHAT  RHEACH is a joint educational initiative of nine European higher education institutions, financed by the European Commission Erasmus Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP-IP). The course has been awarded 6 ECTS credits by the University of Bologna.


WHO The ten-day residential course is open to 30 under and postgraduate students (second and third cycle students preferred) enrolled in any of the partner universities: University of Bologna (Italy), University of Valencia (Spain), London Metropolitan University (UK), Ege Üniversitesi (Izmir, Turkey), Aristoteleio Panepistimio Thessalonikis (Greece), Charité Universitätsmedizin (Berlin, Germany), New Bulgarian University (Sofia, Bulgaria), Geneva University Hospital (Switzerland), Queen Mary University of London (UK).


WHEN  8th-18th July 2014
 

WHERE Izmir, Turkey

 

HOW Applications will be open until the 15th April 2014. All candidates will undergo a selection procedure. No tuition fee will be requested for selected candidates. Travel will be reimbursed. Accommodation, breakfast and lunch will be covered by the project, and dinners until the budget allows it, in compliance with the Erasmus LLP-IP rules (see the application form instructions for details).

THE COURSE
Globalisation and global movement of people represent complex processes tightly interconnected and exacerbated by the economic crisis that is currently affecting and deeply transforming Europe. Furthermore, the policies developed as a response to the crisis are weakening the welfare state, putting under threat the enforceability of the right to health (also) through a deterioration of other human rights and the increase in economic, social and health inequalities affecting in particular the most marginalised groups, including migrants. Starting from a shared perspective on the social responsibilities of universities, which includes knowledge production and action, the RHEACH interdisciplinary programme will provide students with theoretical content, analytical tools and practical experience for critically engaging with the on-going global processes and their impact on three main axes: 1) human rights, 2) health and welfare policies and 3) the movement of people.

THE TEACHING
RHEACH teaching staff is representative of a variety of different backgrounds, disciplines and provenance. Health, social science and political science areas are equally represented. This interesting composition aims to create a stimulating learning environment and to facilitate experience exchange among different European countries. Interactive teaching and participatory learning methodologies will be applied throughout the course. The course will be held in English.

THE VENUE
The course will be held in Izmir, Turkey. Accommodation and meals for students and staff will be arranged close to the course venue.

HOW TO APPLY
Fill in the application form following the instructions here attached; deadline for applications is April 15th 2014. Candidates selection will be based on academic credits, experience in the field of global health, human rights and/or migration (including personal experience, volunteering, activism and research) and on a letter of motivation.
