Teamwork in Healthcare, Innovation in education, creativity in research

3rd International Summerschool on

Parkinsons’ Disease Warsaw, Poland, July 11-20, 2011

Invitation

Dear Colleagues, dear students, On behalf of the Agenda Committee and the Local Organizing Committee of the Third European Parkinson’s Disease Summerschool for healthcare students and young professionals, it’s our pleasure to invite you to an event which is the sequel to a very successfull summerschool format. With the improvements made after evaluation of the first and second editions, we will present an even stronger concept! We will bring together innovation in education and teamwork between healthcare professionals to break new grounds in student centered education, patient centered healthcare and patient centered research. The event is hosted from 11th - 20th of July, by students from Medical University of Warsaw, Poland This event is inspired by activities of the European Brain Council and the First European Brain Forum on Parkinson’s Disease in which patients, professionals of different walks of healthcare, industry and policy makers got together to team up against Parkinson’s Disease. We dedicate our efforts to organise this event to all those whom contribute to improve care and to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease and to those who struggle with the impact of Parkinson’s Disease on their daily lifes. Through peer education, new technologies, teamwork and training, we intend to create well referenced, innovative, high quality, patient centered research proposals during the summerschool. The students will return home better equipped to function in a healthcare team and be more aware of a patient centered, humane as well as academic approach to healthcare. The education and training process will be led entirely by students and the outcomes and contents of the education process will be subject to expert review. This event is revolutionary due to the fact that: • Students are entirely responsible for the educational process • There will be active participation of academic experts, but their role will not be to prepare a lecture or to chair a small working group. Their role will be to review, to give feedback and to quality assure the outcomes of the work done by the students. This is an innovative student centered approach to education combining the strength of academic expertise with highly motivational educational methods.. • Our Keynote opening lectures will be done by a patient and a carer sharing personal experience and an expert giving an overview on Parkinson’s Disease. • Next to this we will try to combine academic work with hands on, voluntary service for local patient community in collaboration with the local Parkinson’s Disease Patient Association.

Brochure for sponsors and partners Training & E-learning Trainers A team of trainers is there to serve as supporters of your teamwork process. Training While struggling through large quantities of data and compiling comprehensive presentations, you may be confronted with different work cultures, attitudes, communication difficulties and so on. Training will be tailored to your specific needs. When we speak of leadership training in the agenda, we refer to training of those skills, which you need to get the job done with your team. Experts The experts listening to our presentations can also be consulted for suggestions on the technical aspects of writing a research project proposal. With experts we mean: authorities from different academic fields, from industry as well as patients E-learning The final presentation will be broadcasted over the internet using Adobe Connect, online conferencing and e-learning technology. An international expert panel consisting of patients, academics, industry representatives and maybe even funders of research will be able to ask questions and cast a vote upon the best research proposal.

Summerschool

Student centered education Level of pre-existing knowledge on Parkinson’s Disease needed to participate: none

Brainstorm In a large group systematic brainstorm, we will identify within the group what is known and what is not known about Parkinson’s Disease. This brainstorm will cover symptoms, care issues, pathophysiology, pharmacology, epidemiology and so on. Participants will write “keywords” on sticky notes and stick those to the wall. This process is lead by trainers.

Organisation Organisation of brainstorm outcomes, through shuffling of the sticky notes on the wall into coherent groups. Themes and work assignments will be defined.

Heathcare student teams Students from different fields with an interest in Parkinson’s Disease will be mixed in groups and assignments will be given based upon the brainstorm. There will be 3 teams of students, with 6-10 members. On the end of each day these teams present a synthesis of the main findings of a full day of work in 10 minutes. A Hand out may be supplied to cover more details than a short presentation may fit. You will present towards a panel which may consist of patient as well as academic experts. This means that your use of language must be adjusted to both types of audience. This also assures that students who knew nothing at the beginning, will get a fair chance to raise their level of knowledge from basics to expert level in a matter of days.

Team Tasks Tasks must be distributed within the group and roles need to be divided: keeping track of time, administering literature search, keeping reference lists, writing down key findings from articles, preparing hand outs, preparing the final presentation, sharing information between groups to prevent overlap and double work, keeping up a team spirit.

Internationally: • If fundraising is successfull we aim to: • Retain our accessibility for lower income countries • become student members of the European Brain Council • have our budget reviewed by CGR guideline for pharma sponsoring (http://www.cgr.nl/) to spend industry money as ethical as possible. • professionalise our brochure and report design process as well as our advertisement campaign, by budgetting activities dealing with this. • professionalise our accounting and financial reporting by dedicating budget to this • pay our student trainers a small wage for their 9 days of training in order to get the best European student trainers at our event. • professionalise our event coordination • professionalise our scientific outcomes dissemination and publication practices. Any excess funds beyond this, will be invested in the next edition of the summerschool.
