Third round of the Medical Peace Work MOOC

On May 7, 2018 the University of Bergen offers a new run of our interactive MPW MOOC (massive open online course) on the role of healthcare in maintaining and building peaceful societies. This MOOC will help you to understand how violence affects health and how medical peace work has an impact on health, violence prevention and peace-building. ICAN staff has contributed to the development of one of the six case topics.

The course included two hours of training per week and uses the following cases:

  • Health responses to a nuclear explosion
  • Peace-health work in war and post-war areas
  • Healthcare for refugees
  • Recognising and healing the effects of torture
  • Health effects of climate change
  • Preventing and addressing domestic violence

This MOOC is differently from our seven MPW online courses on this Moodle platform, as it is moderated and uses a case-based learning approach. You will gain not only from the presented content, but also from the shared reflections and experiences of the other participants.

The course starts on May 7th, 2018 and runs six weeks. It is freely availabl.
