Engagement education: engagement training experiences in the nursing degree at the University of Trieste
Formare all’engagement: esperienze di formazione all’engagement nel corso di Laurea in Infermieristica dell’Università di Trieste
Introduction: The article describes how in ASUGI nursing students are made aware, since their first year bachelor degree, about the importance of actively engaging the person in the health-care process and of measuring the level of engagement with validated instruments (with particular reference to the PHE-S®).
Methods: During the clinical internship, with the help of the internship tutors, students can experiment and use this tool. At the end of the third year, they try to systematize what they have learnt in the practical traineeship by connecting their practical experience with theoretical concepts learnt and critically analysing their clinical experiences.
Results and Discussion: This didactic experience has led to the preparation and defence of a good number of degree theses focused on the value of measuring and promoting the engagement of people along their healthcare
