CanHealth International offers a new option for quality, multi-disciplinary health care education that supports inter-professional health teams.
One of the challenges experienced by developing countries is that health care professionals may train in different places, bringing different standards to their work. Standardization of training is recognized as a high priority in order to improve care. CanHealth International’s curricula can address this challenge by giving countries access to high-quality, standardized training materials.
For example, a major hospital in a North African country might have surgeons on staff who trained in any number of different countries. It’s unlikely that any will have been trained to North American standards, and each will bring a different interpretation of the “standard of care.” By requiring every member of the team to complete continuing education curricula through CanHealth International, the hospital can reduce knowledge discrepancies, improve the quality of information and expertise, and ensure the team shares a common standard.
We deliver accessible, standardized education to health care professionals around the world. Our team has developed a unique, turnkey educational resource that offers an important building block to ministries of health and health education institutions in their strategies to solve the health care workforce crisis their countries are experiencing.
CanHealth International provides high quality, standardized North American health education programs. CanHealth currently provides the following 3 programs and will continue to expand its program offerings:
- A one-year intensive program to prepare graduates in developing nations for licensing examinations, safe practice and/or higher education in developed countries
- The Fundamentals of Fetal Health Surveillance
- A program for the development of professional and public e-Mental Health
The educational programs listed below are presently under development for inter-professional health education, to provide further support to developing countries.
- Pre-licensing Program for nursing graduates as a preparatory course for practicing and/or higher education.
- Pre- licensing Program for respiratory therapy graduates as a preparatory course for practicing and/or higher education.
- Pre-licensing Program for physiotherapy graduates as a preparatory course for practicing and/or higher education.
- Pre-licensing Program for anesthesia assistant as a preparatory course for practicing and/or higher education.
- Pre-licensing Program for Midwifery graduates as a preparatory course for practicing and/or higher education.
CanHealth considers its educational units as supplementary material, meant to enhance the curricula already offered by a university or hospital. Organizations that use e-PER will be recognized as CanHealth subscribers. However, CanHealth does not confer credentials or certificates to individuals who complete the educational units. Rather, individual education programs may provide jointly accredited certificates with local licensing bodies and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).
