Educational program by Tabletochki is a combination of different educational activities for medical specialists involved at all stages of childhood cancer treatment. It is aimed to increase the medical expertise and improve medical client service at every stage of treatment. The project will be supported by wide information campaign. To our knowledge, it will be the major project in this sphere.
The Healthcare System in Ukraine is mostly based on the heritage of Soviet Union. Due to poor or totally absent knowledge of English together with extra limited financing, Ukrainian medical specialists have almost no access to up-to-date medical information and international community of experts for knowledge sharing and support. This results in delay of implementation of much needed improvements in both medical treatment and general patient care.
The project plan includes different educational activities (professional conferences, educational practical seminars, both in and out-of-country internships, all-Ukrainian contest) not only on professional skills but also on soft skills such as team&project management, communication skills, client service, grant&fundraising, etc. Also currently Ukrainian Healthcare system is going to be reformed and we want to support medical specialists to embrace the change and be ready for transformation.
Improvement of the access to information and education, sustainable knowledge sharing among the Ukrainian community of medial specialists. Improvement of non-medical factors related to client services such as patients' and their parents' feedback on satisfaction with the medical approach and professional treatment. Promotion (rise) of the status of the medical profession in pediatric oncology. And by all means the increase of survival rate of Ukrainian children with cancer.
