Project's period (from/to):

Activity concerned:
IO1 - Publication on Paediatrics Soft Skills Needs

Objectives of activities carried out:
Partners of Softisped project will create an evidence and research-based publication regarding the expectations of the target groups involved in pediatric health care and the recipients of these services, i.e.
a) pediatricians and physicians working with children/residents in pediatrics
b) pediatric patients
c) patients' parents/guardians
d) health care staff in the five countries involved in the project.
Opinions of 25 respondents/country in each group will be collected through questionnaires and interviews. Results will be analysed referring to their expectations. Outcomes will reflect on what will be the most important soft skills that have to be taught - basis for the development of the training package (IO2) and learnt - learning package (IO3).

Description of activities carried out:
Future Internet Living Lab has
- obtained agreement and informed consent from the participating pediatricians to post their data on the project portal

- adapted the questionnaires to the pediatric patient
- translated the questionnaires to Hungarian
We distributed and collected the Questionnaires to the envisaged target groups:

Results Achieved:
We have:

- included the results in the National Report template for the E-book preparation and have written the report on the expectations of the target groups involved in pediatric health care and the recipients of these services. Results obtained will provide the link for the next step in the project activity: i.e. deliniating the most important softskills likely to cope with the pediatric health care actors' expectations
