Health Care 4.0. goes Mobile

Health Care 4.0. goes Mobile

Care facilities are increasingly willing to employ qualified personnel from abroad who require a minimum language competence level of B2 (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). Experiences in everyday work show that this language level is often not sufficient, especially where the language has been acquired in a generic way and not tailor made to the future working place, namely the health sector. More specifically, health care institutions who employ newly arrived migrant nurses see work related language skills gaps, cultural differences and social barriers, as well as work related skills gaps due to differing requirements in new home countries.

Our HEALTH CARE 4.0 Curriculum highlights skills, competences and knowledge for migrant nurses and existing similarities for the second target group, migrant care helpers. It is used as the basis to engage in the development of the Health Care 4.0. Mobile App, and its audio-visual learning material.
