Workshop Cycle 'The challenges of health technicians education during the pandemic'

  • Facebook

The Joaquim Venancio Polytechnic School of Health (EPSJV/Fiocruz), as the PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centre for Health Technician Education, in cooperation with the International Network for the Education of Health Technicians (RETS), the Ibero-American Network for Health Technician Education and the Network of Technical Health Schools of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (RETS-CPLP), is launching the workshop cycle 'The challenges of health technicians education during the pandemic', in portuguese and spanish.

The purpose of the initiative is to generate a space for exchange, reflection, learning, and formulation of proposals about the concrete experiences of how different educational institutions have faced these challenges and achieved their goals.

The first workshop of the cycle will address the issue of 'professionalizing practices', which cannot be done virtually. How are institutions dealing with this difficulty in its different aspects? What solutions have been provided so that these technicians, whose role in the national health systems is fundamental, can enter the world of work well prepared, and at a time of many demands, such as the pandemic? How do we face the difficulties in maintaining the number of graduates from technical courses and maintaining the quality of the training? These are some of the questions to be answered from the first meeting.

Participate in this effort by sending questions for the first workshop and suggestions for topics for subsequent workshops to the RETS email address (

Date: July 6, 2021
