Project Number 505666-LLP-2009-SI-LEONARDO-LMP
Project Type Développement d'innovation
Country EU-Projets centralisés
Un projet international a débuté le 1er octobre 2009.
Le projet est conduit par un large consortium comprenant 8 partenaires européens dont 4 partenaires slovènes et quatre autres provenant d’Autriche, de Belgique de France et de Hongrie.
Le but du projet est de développer un programme de formation commun pour les professionnels de l’accompagnement de personnes cérébro lésées en prenant appui sur l’expérience et les connaissances des différents pays de l’Union impliqués.
Ce programme doit permettre des standards de qualité équivalente au niveau européen.
Le projet devra assurer au personnel l’acquisition des connaissances, compétences et savoir être, nécessaires pour fournir un service de qualité aux personnes handicapées suite à une lésion cérébrale acquise.
Il apportera aussi une reconnaissance du niveau de compétence et développera l’attractivité de ces emplois liés à l’accompagnement médico social au long cours des personnes cérébrolésées.
Acquired brain injuries (ABI) are an epidemic of modern society and one of the biggest medico-social problems in the western countries. The consequences of ABI are often extensive and wide ranging and can cause distress and concern for staff working directly with persons with ABI. During the project´ two years duration the ABI Partnership has developed and tested a basic training programme, which will provide staff the specific skills, knowledge, attitudes and
responsibilities necessary to offer the highest standard of care and support possible. The training programme is based on commonly defined ABI Basic Learning Outcomes, which are
the learning objectives expected of each participant by the end of the training. The ABI
training programme differs from other brain injury staff training programs. Most training
programs are problem-focused as they emphasise the deficits and difficulties. The ABI
training programme is centred on the individual with ABI and emphasises the approach, the principles and values that guide practice. An important part of the ABI training programme is also understanding the complexity of ABI, developing appropriate intervention strategies to address the presenting challenges and highlighting available resources that may be of use to
staff, persons with ABI and their family members. The ABI Training programme is supported by the ABI Training Manual which will serve as a resource to assist trainees and the ABI Guidelines which will serve as a resource for trainers to prepare and inform themselves so that they can run an effective training course.
In order to reach sustainability after the project ending the partners have established a
follow-up project team to continue developing and promoting the ABI training programme.
Partners will concentrate their efforts to implement the training programme into their
Education and training systems and to achieve the promotion and support from appropriate
stakeholders and decision-makers. Dissemination plans for the future are related to further
increase the visibility of project results mainly by enforcing the dissemination channels
already used during the project timeframe. The ABI website (www.abi-project.eu) still
remains at the centre of the project future dissemination plans. It will be hold online for at least future 5 years. Partners have planned to reuse the knowhow gained during the ABI project in new EU funded projects.
The projects duration was of 25 months. The project activities were divided into 8 separate work packages.
WP1- Overall management and coordination of the project
WP2- Researching on good practices and development of a common training programme
WP3- Adjustment and further development of the trans-national training programme
WP4- Testing and evaluating the training programme
WP5- Integration of the training programme
WP6- Dissemination Plan
WP7- Exploitation of the results
WP8- Overall quality and evaluation plan.

Transparence et certification
The most tangible result of the project is the training programme. The final version of the training course is divided into 10 working units-modules. The ABI Training
programme is set to be delivered as a full-time, comprehensive course (around 40
hours in total), which is followed by a final assessment and the awarding of the ABI
certificate. The trainers may decide to use also other learning objectives if it is
deemed necessary for additions to be made to the training programme to meet with
local requirements. Different course variations adapted to different audiences (eg:
family members, etc) can be created. In these cases there will be no final assessment
and participants will be given a certificate of attendance/participation.
