Start of a new training round of Refugee Care[e]Education in Utrecht!

After the success in Amsterdam and The Hague we are offering the Refugee Care[e]Education training, including the e-learning course and closing workshop in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

This accredited refresher training for Dutch healthcare providers enables them to deliver appropriate quality care to refugees who have recently settled in the Netherlands. By giving additional background information about refugees and specific advice on how to recognize common health problems, treat, refer and provide assistance, serious health problems later in life can be prevented. In addition, the focus on culturally sensitive care and communication strengthens the connection with the newcomers.
