Project Duration: March 2023 to March 2026

DigiCan Train goals 

The project aims at up-skilling and re-skilling the health care workforce in the cancer care setting. This supports the development of effective, person-centred health care, digital cancer care services and the use of contemporary eHealth technology by the HCPs. 
The project also contributes to shaping the lifelong learning dimension in higher education (EQF levels 6-8) by integrating micro-credentials to accompany ECTS and CME credit systems.  The purpose of the project is to design, pilot and evaluate DigiCanTrain education and training programme for trainers, clinical and non-clinical HCPs. The ultimate goal is to improve access to continuing professional education, increase digital skills and the use of eHealth technology of clinical and non-clinical health care professionals working with people affected by cancer. 

The DigiCanTrain project, led by Turku University of Applied Sciences The project group is led by Virpi Sulosaari, PhD, RN, Principal lecturer at Turku University of Applied Sciences.
