PROREMOTE - PROximity care in REMOTE areas - edizione 22-23


Deadline for registration - EXTENDED

February 20th, 2023


March 13th-17th, 2023

Learning objectives

Covid-19 highlighted how important it is to promote local health and ensure proximity to the patient. How is it possible to pursue this objective also in inland areas, mountain areas or small islands? How is it possible to guarantee equity of treatment and excellence in care even for citizens who live far from large welfare centers? This seasonal school is dedicated to this theme. The ways in which to analyze the needs of a territory and the possible implementable technological and organizational solutions will be analyzed.
The Seasonal School will introduce participants to the urgent topic of proximity-care through a dialogue between social, experimental and life sciences. Students will be involved, through different perspectives, on the issues inherent to the enhancement of quantitative and qualitative data, and organizational models for local areas, as useful information for decision makers and service managers to support the innovation of services and of the social protection net of the analysed contexts, starting from the example of Valle del Serchio. At the end of the Seasonal School, participants will develop a comprehensive view and specific tools to support policy making to support proximity care in remote areas.

Teaching methodologies

Students will find an interactive and interdisciplinary learning environment that facilitates problems understanding and solving, as well as the development of a decision-making process capable of considering and valuing all the actors of the contexts analysed. Several experts from different disciplines will participate in the program presenting their experience.

Who should attend this Seasonal School

PROREMOTE is mainly aimed at students of master’s degree courses in Economics, Political Science, Management Engineering, Organizational Sciences and Sociology, as well as students of the last two years of Medicine and Health Professions (and equivalent). Any other applications may be considered.
