StoryAidEU Presents 2nd #INHWELive

The StoryAidEU project has produced another video for the International Network for Health Workforce Education’s #INHWELive series.  The presentation looks at the concept analysis conducted by the consortium on humanism . You can watch project member Catrina Heffernan’s presentation on YouTube below.

The original idea for INHWE Live, shaped at the end of 2019, was to use INHWE’s many events to ensure that their members could share ideas with colleagues across the globe. Unfortunately this concept had to be put on hold but INHWE decided to test the idea by asking their members to record 20 minute presentations that they are willing to share on YouTube. These videos are then premiered at a set time and the presenter can answer questions live.
