On January 7th, 2020, the ODISSeA Postgraduate Programme on Organ Donation has started with 304 participants from Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines and Thailand.
The ODISSeA Postgraduate Programme comes from the need for a specialized education that builds adequate knowledge, skills and attitude in organ donation to improve the number of specialists that can efficiently coordinate the process of organ donation in these Southeast Asian countries.
During the next 9 months, the participants will be trained through a multilevel blended methodology, where competencies are built progressively and transferred from the academic environment to the clinical setting. The variety of educational strategies employed such as microlearning capsules, webinars, online modules, local seminars, on-the-job improvement projects, awareness events and international assessment seminars, as well as the multilevel approach from basic to advanced will ensure a better penetration of what is being learned. Participants are supported throughout their learning journey by international experts in the field as well as local faculty, who previously completed the ODISSeA Train the Trainers programme.
These participants will be the first generation to complete the ODISSeA Postgraduate Programme in Organ Donation certified and, equivalent to 30 ECTS.
