Testimonials from the participants in the Softis-Ped project.

Roland KapplerGermany The case studies are an important source because they can be discussed in group. The strength of the SoftisPed-Project is the collaboration between the different institutions and countries. The project provides good resources like online-links. The project integrates well in the responsibilities that the medical landscape has to face in the future.
Martin FischerGermany The benefits of the project are the integration in the curricula. It´s good for starting discussions. The project highlights important issues for training. The case studies are a very good basis for the lectures. The project highlights an important issue in the future training of medicine students.
Emanuele ValentiSpain The guidelines provide relevant details for a better communication with patients and relatives. Useful videos, access to contents and resources.
Benjamín HerrerosSpain The project gives a better understanding of communication obstacles and truly provides good skills to improve relationship with carers, parents, children with different cultural values, and very useful skills to enhance time management at paediatricians' offices. Soft skills are rightly focused not only on communication between doctors and children, but also on sanitarians, and relatives.
Martina GervasoliItaly I was very interested in intercultural issues and decision making. I think Softis-Ped can be a powerful instrument because it matches knowledge about the most important soft skills in Paediatrics with case studies and practical applications elaborating guideline for training and teaching.
Serena ZucchiItaly Systemic studies are one of the emerging approach in research and in clinical EBM interventions. That means that pharmacological and no pharmacological interventions are more and more integrated in medicine practices. One of the main instruments to practice in these directions are soft skills, because they pay attention to the quality of relationship with the patients&care givers and taking care of a good and efficient communication. Pediatrics is a very sensible field to systemic approach intervention, in which non-verbal communication/empathy and clear verbal communication targeted to the age and the clinical situation of the patients have got an important load. Softis-Ped project gives relevance to these peculiar aspects, developing training FAD courses and other instruments (Needs Manual and Visual Dictionary) to Pediatrics students and to experts of the field.
Sonia ScarponiItaly I consider very interesting and powerful this training approach. Every Paediatrics has the autonomy to learning more recent skills and can return to the information every times he need. Clarity and quality of contents available are the best aspects of this training.
Mariella DipilatoItaly The gist of the project is to focus on communication, even as a central instruments in the Pediatrics training and clinical practices.
Silvia BenechItaly The positive elements of the project are: attention to the child in its complexity, attention to different ethnic groups and cultures, the desire to improve in the relationship between the staff. We are very interested to this project and proud to be an active partner.
Borgarello RosannaItaly The Softis-Ped project has an exceptional value for me, as it represents a laudable attempt to fill a gap in Italian hospitals.
Laura CallegariItaly The most interesting aspects and strengths of the Softis-Ped project is to try to see everything on the child's side with the child's eyes and to try to improve in our work
Multilanguage dictionary of medical terms. I believe this project is an attempt to standardize hospital environments in an attempt to improve attention to the child. I am glad that this large project has started from the European community and we will follow it to improve our reality.
Silvia GerleroItaly I appreciated very much the analysis of Paediatric System in different countries, as well as the training on communication in general, but mainly communication in Multicultural Environment (this will be our future!). I believe that Softis Ped is very interesting; it is of great incitement for updating for operators and of collaboration among different countries. I liked the Multilanguage dictionary very much.
Maria Cristiina MasoeroItaly This project is very useful for staff working in the hospital because good communication is the basis of every interpersonal success
Marco NangeroniItaly The Softis-Ped project was much appreciated by me, as I felt the need in my reality to develop the theme of communication. The problems of communication are not part of professional training, so any initiative in this regard is extremely useful.
Lucia PanfaniItaly The Softis- Ped project was much appreciated, as I have always thought that a good communication is an integral part of the care
Luca RoasioItaly I am convinced that thanks to the material made available on the SoftisPed site we will be able to improve in our work. The most interesting aspect of this project is the collaboration between different European countries that has allowed us to trace a path of professional growth that we hope to carry out.

Monica LittizzettoItaly Patient based center medicine is a very effectiveness approach in clinic activities and soft skills are very important instrument to improve them in Health Care Staff
Gabor M.Romania For me the most important aspects of the results was the usefulness and replicability of the best practice. The most interesting aspect was clarity of contents. I think that the publication and intellectual outputs are useful for all the participants (students, residents, nurses and specialists.
AnonymousRomania The most important aspect and strength of the SoftisPed project was the Communication Skills in Pediatrics Course because we do not have many opportunities to improve our communication skills.
Stroe V.Romania This is an exceptional package that includes theoretical research, teaching and learning applications, referring not only to Romania but to other EU countries. I think the materials are very well organized, clear and would be of great use to lecturers who teach pediatric communication but also to residents. Learning about communication in pediatrics is never too much.
Anonymous residentRomania I liked very much the practical activities and the videos. They are extremely suggestive for application of empathy, calm, using adequate language with children. I also liked the selection of videos for debriefing in the case of nurses and pediatricians.
Pop A.Romania I think the most important aspects of the project refer to the inclusion in the pediatric communication, besides the triad patient - pediatrician - parent, of the other two players: i.e. peers (experts) and healthcare staff. All the modules referring to teaching strategies and autonomous learning also include a multicultural communication component, which is useful and extremely topical.
Cristina A.Romania I think that the most important and interesting aspects of communication in pediatrics are the methods of communication with children and in a multicultural environment. The fact that the videos, tests, and the online dictionary can be very well used is an important resource for the pediatricians, students and residents.
P.VRomania I think the Softis-Ped project results are very useful but also innovative in may ways: starting from theory and research, the modules focus on teaching and learning of soft skills in pediatrics. The research and applications include a multicultural aspect of communication and also the healthcare staff and peers in the pediatric communication. All the modules are rich in practical applications, videos, scenarios, description of strategies and online evaluation tests. They also contain suggestions for online resources.
