Cost Action 15222 and Biocruces Bizkaia Health Research Institute are pleased to welcome renowned experts in the implementation of PCC to Bilbao, Spain, October 28-29, 2019. 15 international experts from 7 countries will lead the Second Annual COST Action 15222 Person-Centred Care (PCC) Training School. The Training School will examine how PCC is implemented in hospitals and primary care centers in various countries and at multiple system levels (micro, meso, and macro). Findings from research studies on intervention and implementation effectiveness will be shared and discussed.

Over 50 participants from across Europe will have the opportunity learn about and discuss how health professionals are trained in PCC, what frameworks are used to study contextual factors influencing PCC implementation effectiveness, and how uptake of PCC can be increased via policy measures. Sessions include small group processing, workshops, as well as a symposium and facilitated panel presentation with large group discussion. English-to-Spanish translation will be provided.

To encourage the participation of students and early stage researchers, as well as professionals from COST Inclusiveness Target Countries, 8 COST travel scholarship grants have been awarded. Per Grant RC-2019-20038 from the Basque Government Department of Education, financial assistance to participants under 30 years of age is offered on a first come, first served basis equivalent to 20% of travel costs documented via receipts. The Basque Association of Family and Community Medicine Professionals (Osatzen) is also collaborating by providing scientific and administrative support.

Registration for the Training School and associated activities is free, but spaces are limited. Not all registrants may be able to participate and acceptance will be based on anticipated contribution.
