Course/Programme Description: CRISH is an education programme that brings together key stakeholders, including patients and informal caregivers, to learn to engage, co-create and co-design bench-to-bedside research projects and healthcare innovative projects through patient experience, responsible research and innovation, translational medicine, entrepreneurship, reciprocity and co-design.
Course/Programme Objectives: The CRISH programme brings together key stakeholders from across health sectors, training them to engage and co-create innovative solutions and research projects. This face-to-face course has a strong focus on translational medicine, as well as innovative processes, products or services that will promote and improve the health of populations through the identification of unmet needs. CRISH takes a health systems approach, providing knowledge, skills and tools on patient experience (XPA), responsible research and innovation (RRI), entrepreneurship (ENT) and reciprocity and co-design methods (RcD) and will train key stakeholders, especially patients, clinicians and researchers.
CRISH course brings also translational medicine into co-creation of innovations in health. After the course, CRISH participants will receive support in their innovation and research projects through online customized mentoring. CRISH aims to become an accredited course, working closely with several universities and disseminating widely. CRISH will be supplemented, in addition to the face-to-face course, by a MOOC designed to increase its impact.
Target Group: CRISH addresses a broad set of health stakeholder profiles: healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses and formal caregivers; researchers, from basic to applied science; entrepreneurs, managers and ethics committee members from research institutes and healthcare providers; and also patients and informal caregivers.This wide range of stakeholders allows us to offer a complete picture of the health ecosystem, from research to clinical settings, to innovation and public engagement.
CRISH Learning outcomes
The learning outcomes (LO) per participant group are:
- SOs/Patients: pro-actively engage with health professionals & entrepreneurs. LO: health literacy increased & better knowledge on health system.
- Healthcare professionals: implement the XPA in day-to-day practice. LO: stimulate patient centred care and increase of innovative solutions to improve healthcare/services delivery.
- Researchers: integrate RRI components within projects. LO: conduct research in a more inclusive manner.
- Managers: avoid waste and incentivise best practices (incentives for results and not only for processes). LO: increase the “value for money” concept and their investment capacity in healthcare innovations.
- Entrepreneurs: maximise the chance of success for innovations. LO: acquire necessary skills to team up with health professionals and end users to develop more inclusive and responsive innovativeness.
- Ethics Committees: incorporate patient/citizens views in their decisions. LO: strengthen the role and scope of action of EC by implementing RRI and XPA elements within research protocols and healthcare decisions.
