NURED aligned curricula for home-care nurses

NURED project developed two new aligned curricula for future home-care nurses in Estonia, Finland, Latvia, and Sweden. The curricula were developed considering stakeholder needs: the partners created pilot versions of four different modules based on surveys conducted with home care staff in 2017-2018. The surveys’ results revealed the differences in home care nursing practices in all four partner countries.
The available modules are:

1. Teamwork and professional skills in the home care setting (lead partner, resp. Arcada, Finland);
2. Occupational stress, stress and time management (Rīga Stradiņš University, Latvia);
3. E-services and e-products (Tallinn Health Care College, Estonia)
4. Pedagogical attitude and way of work (PFA) in intellectual disability practice in the home care context (Mälardalens Högskola, Sweden).

All partners conducted pilot testing on the module they were responsible for. After the testing, the 1st draft of the aligned NURED curricula was created in the autumn of 2018. These early drafts of the aligned curricula were assessed in focus group discussions by each partner in the winter of 2019. Each focus group discussion was carried out with 3-10 participants including students, educators, and other field professionals. The final draft of the aligned curricula was tested among nursing students in all partner countries during autumn 2019.  All partners also created short educational videos, publicly available to the NURED website together with the final version of the NURED aligned curricula.
