Online Course Medical Peace Work

Second round of the 12 hours MPW MOOC

10/11/2017 During October and November, 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 Norwegian Medical Association has accredited this course with 12 CME points for all medical specialties.

The course run already started on October 2nd and is freely available until November 26th. If you are not already enrolled in this exciting peer learning process, please join in now at: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/medical-peace-work
