EFFECTIVENESS OF WORKPLACE-BASED AND CROSS-PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION TRAINING WITH VIDEO FEEDBACK TO INFORM ABOUT MEDICAL MEASURES

(APRIKO)

Summary

The communication of health-relevant information in the context of education about medical measures is an important prerequisite for establishing a common knowledge base between patients and doctors. This in turn can promote positive health behavior and contribute to risk minimization and thus to greater patient safety. The aim of the APRIKO project is to test the effectiveness and sustainability of an established workplace-based training model that serves to impart communicative skills to physicians and nurses when providing information about medical measures. It is a randomized controlled study with a pre-post design. The target groups of the training are students on the threshold of becoming a physician, medical specialists and nurses. The materials developed in the project concerning the training model and the procedure for medical education of patients can serve as a basis for a subsequent subject- and profession-independent dissemination.
