Doctors, nurses and public health workers in Europe have an influential role in addressing health concerns in public health, for example, to address growing levels of obesity and coronary disease. To date, there is no one European VET programme that provides training for doctors, nurses and public health workers in this area of public health. The HELP project addressed this gap by transferring an obesity and circulatory disease management Continuing Medical Education (CME) programme for doctors, nurses and public health workers, in collaboration with European partners. The Partnership developed the product to incorporate contemporary topics such as physical activity, healthy eating, behaviour change and heart rate into a resource available across Europe. The product is accessible online for professionals such as doctors, nurses and public health workers, and VET organisations in the EU.
This project has resulted in a web portal and the provision of two online downloadable training resources. Firstly, course material for trainers, and secondly, course material for learners. This enables the training to be either downloaded and delivered by a VET organisation, or by the learner independently, who could study for the accreditation 'in-service'. There is, therefore, the capacity to develop a well trained and knowledgeable European health professional workforce through this product.
Tangible outcomes included a European training resource, accessible online, for VET organisations, and doctors, nurses and public health workers throughout the European Union.
Intangible outcomes included the capacity to develop a well trained and knowledgeable European health professional workforce in the area of obesity and circulatory disease management.
The envisaged impact from this proposal is twofold and symbiotic; it is the unique provision of a European training resource which will result in a more competent, knowledgeable, better trained, and coordinated medical workforce across Europe.
The project was coordinated by the University of Gloucestershire through a project coordination work package that monitored project activity and project expenditure. Through this work package all partners came together to deliver the project.
To fully understand the needs of the European market in relation to the training resource, a needs analysis was undertaken in each partner country to establish current CPD activities in the field, country specific requirements and current practice. The needs analysis resulted in a report that was used to inform product development.
The needs analysis report was used directly in the adaptation of the training resource. Each partner was allocated a specific task related to the writing and support of module development as part of the training resource. Each module was then reviewed within the partnership. Four modules have been produced covering heart rate, behaviour change, physical activity and healthy eating.
Following adaptation, the resources were piloted with target beneficiaries in each partner country. The results of these pilots were used to further adapt, where appropriate, the training materials. These adapted materials have resulted in the final products.
Running alongside the adaption and piloting exercises was a work package dedicated to creating e-materials. This work package saw the creation of an online web portal, learning materials, and online exam used to test beneficiary knowledge post study. The web portal, on successful completion by a beneficiary, produces a certificate of passing.
Evaluation of the project was carried out internally throughout the life of the project assessing the process of partnership working. Product evaluation was built into the piloting and adaptation work packages. As well as quarterly briefings an interim and final evaluation report was produced.
Also running throughout the life of the project was dissemination. Key resources in dissemination were the project website and project brochure. Further dissemination occurred at many different levels include directly with the beneficiary group through needs analysis work and through product piloting. International conferences were also attended as a way of disseminating more broadly and to other countries within the EU not represented in the project consortium.
A sustainability action plan was developed which included concrete actions for all partners post project, including what actions to take to exploit the products. Partners are already looking at ways of exploiting HELP products as well as thinking about how the products can be enlarged to cover more areas of training though HELP2.

Tangible outcomes include:
A European training resource (course material for trainers and learners) accessible online, for VET organisations, and doctors, nurses and public health workers throughout the European Union (available and downloadable in English, Spanish, German, Czech, Portuguese, Romanian).
There are four Modules that have information regarding the topic and its relevance to health for patients. The four Modules are:
Physical Activity, Healthy Eating, Behaviour Change and Heart Rate.
There is also Patient Material available on three Modules - Physical Activity, Healthy Eating and Behaviour Change. These can also be downloaded free, or printed, and given to patients.
Modules include study questions and a multiple choice exam which, if passed, provides registered professionals with a certificate of completion with their percentage score from the examination.
A web portal where materials can be accessed and downloaded.
