Date of grant approval:05.03.2014 Status:ongoing Project Location : Romania Country: Romania Amount of the Swiss grant:CHF 488%651 (548710.07 US Dollar) Total budget of the project:CHF 574%883 (645373.97 US Dollar) Objective :The project aims to improve the quality of paediatric intensive care in Romania by creating a training program for Paediatric Intensive Care, improving the training capacity of training centres and the recruitment of paediatricians for the training program of emergency departments. Theme/Focus Area : Human and Social Development Health: Basic Health Services Target Group : Romanian paediatric and intensive care health professionals Context : Paediatric Intensive Care units (PICU) in Romania are mainly run by Anaesthesiologists who are trained for adult care. A subspecialisation of intensive care for other disciplines does not exist. Only larger hospitals can afford having paediatricians work in PICU additionally to the Anaesthesiologists. Thus, most PICUs in Romania do not benefit from specialist paediatric care, but base their services on adult care principles. Goals : Goal/Overall objective: Romanian children benefit from improved health outcomes following paediatric intensive care services Purpose: Paediatricians who passed the "Atestat" program on paediatric intensive care deliver high quality PICU services based on international standards. The intermediate outcomes are: Regional training centres deliver a two year paediatric intensive care program with Atestat according to Romanian regulations and adapted to EU standards (ESPNIC); PICU patients benefit from high quality services provided according to locally implemented Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG), which correspond to international standards Activities : The EA will conduct a training needs assessment, a review of training curricula in collaboration with the EU efforts of ESPNIC and organise a training of trainers event to upgrade the capacity of Romanian training centres. Clinical Practice Guidelines will be updated and, where necessary, developed corresponding to West-European standards. Outcome oriented project progress monitoring will be done through an M&E system, following the defined indicators. Results : The expected results are: 5 regional training centres capacity assessed training equipment procured regulatory environment adapted in order to establish the sub-specialty new curriculum developed training material developed 25 trainers trained 8 clinical guideline developed QM system organization experience exchanged
