M8 Alliance webinar on the need for integration of migration health aspects in the education of health professionals
The M8 Alliance, an international network of 30 academic health centres created under the World Health Summit, organises a series of webinars on migrant and refugee health. Earlier webinars this year focused on ensuring the COVID-19 vaccine reaches undocumented migrants, digital solutions for migrant and refugee health, and strengthening healthcare systems in Europe while improving migrant health.
The next webinar, to be held on 7 September 2021, will focus on the need for integration of migration health aspects in the education of health professionals.
Among others, the webinar will cover the following topics:
- health issues affecting migrants and refugees for which focused education of health
professionals is needed;
- additional skills and competencies (including communication and cultural competence) that need to be developed;
- overcoming academic/institutional resistance to such modifications in the education of health professionals;
- synergies of such education with broader health goals such as the SDGs/Universal Health Coverage (health equity/leaving no-one behind) and public health/health security.
