Toledo’s learning activities & Transnational Meeting
We are almost there now: the Protocols Project, a European project led by ORAS, is taking its steps towards its conclusion.
The deadline is scheduled for August, at least for the operational phase. It means that by that date the contents of the project will have to be completed and uploaded to the platform chosen by the partners. Afterwards, there will be a period to put together all the administrative material and send everything to the European Evaluating Body, for the final examination and official approval of the project.
The Protocols Project started in 2020, with the purpose of delivering a course that can be used free of charge online for rehabilitation professionals and caregivers (but also consultable by patients, if necessary), set on the telerehabilitation of people with spinal cord injury.
The project, therefore, aims to provide a context of studies, materials, bibliographies and techniques for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physiatrists and caregivers interested in studying this topic further and achieving valid accreditation throughout Europe.
Before the conclusion of the project, the partners met in Toledo, guests of the Fundacion Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos to carry out some important tests on the platform and the contents: each partner involved medical specialists, physiotherapists and caregivers experimenting for the first time with the contents of the project, and collecting feedback. It was an intense week of work, which saw the researchers submitting the course to a group of potential users.
The feedback received allowed us to make changes, collect suggestions and study new solutions to arrive at a definitive form of the project.
Now, the ball is in Europe’s court: the opinion of the European evaluation body is expected by December, and the consequent publication of the course on the dedicated platforms.
