The COVID-19 pandemic had an enormous impact on the public health system and put much pressure on health professionals.

empowerment4pandemias focuses on the importance of adequate knowledge and competencies of healthcare professionals and decision-makers to successfully cope with such events, and the need for individual and organizational resilience in dealing constructively with these challenges.

An assessment tool for individual and organisational resilience as well as a training programme to improve crisis response and preparedness competences during pandemics will be developed.

An innovative learning environment is created which allows for individualized learning and caters to different needs of learners.


The key deliverables of this project consists of six Project Results.
