Government provides €10m for health and social care training

Finland’s government has awarded €10 million to projects aimed at helping universities develop education programmes in medicine and social care.

The funding, announced on 29 March, is part of a reform to make education and training of care professionals more responsive to the needs of society. Among the projects that won funding are efforts to harmonise education between different universities and develop degree components focused on palliative medicine.

“The skills of professionals play a crucial role in the success of the reform,” said Sanni Grahn-Laasonen, Finland’s research minister. “We must ensure that our staff have the necessary skills and opportunities for professional development.”
