We have analysed the mapping, contents, strategies and methods of distributing different contents of medical history on the road of teaching medical social sciences

in order to identify the best methods of interviewing such professional

IO1B: Focus Group

We participated in the Focus Group organised on 11 March as observers in order to see the problematic found relevant by the teachers out of the scientifically content, the problems and the solutions they found.

We conducted research and analysed the professional competences and job positions held by the invited ones.

Also we researched on the methodologies, the success cases and the evolution along the years of the themes and approaches on:
- Medical Anthropology
- Medical Psychology
- Medical history
- Bioethics

We used all these information as the basis for the guides but also in order to make them "learning objects" (images, pictures, objects, medical equipment on the historical path) that can be included by our academical partners in the short films they will make and EuroEd will edit.
