It aims to develops and pilot tools which enable the implementation of the European PPT/IENE Model for intercultural education of nurses, created and developed by partners from five European countries in two previous Leonardo projects.

Partners from six European countries , UK, Romania, Italy, Germany, Turkey and Netherlands, will adapt and develop the PPT / IENE model, will create innovative training content and the materials, will lead training workshops on the topics of cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, cultural sensitivity, will pilot the assessment tools and will collect case studies for education of delivering compassionate and competent care.

They will create innovative assessment methodology and tools aiming to measure the nurses’ awareness of the importance of cultural and religious values and their understanding of health inequalities as well as their impact on culturally diverse population groups.

Through the exchange of experiences, partners will develop case studies detailing various scenarios mapped in a Good practice manual, which can be used by teachers to promote culturally competent and compassionate care.

The existing multilingual online platform will be enriched with new innovative teaching, learning and assessment tools. This way , a complete package for Intercultural education of nurses and healthcare professionals, extended at the European level will be available for use all over Europe.
