TRaNSforM - Training Requirements and Nursing Skills for Mobility in health careEuropean Comission - Lifelong Learning Programme
University of Nottingham

What have been the challenges?

  • Gaining access to student availability
  • Fitting within academic year—Exams/holidays
  • Too long between meetings without communication, people sometimes forget what we had agreed to do
  • I found translation very tiring after an hour my head hurts I needed breaks to translate from our own language to English. The programme was designed to give breaks—sometimes these needed to be longer.
  • English speaking people made huge effort to understand languages, having only one project language was demanding on those that did not speak it.
  • Working days were long and tough because understanding complexity of language and interpretation of meanings takes time and energy
  • Role of student mobility needs to be identified and agreed at outset of the project
  • Role of professionals identified and agreed, also consider involvement in dissemination
  • Richness of opportunities that we didn’t have time to explore and capture richness of stories
  • We could have use richness of discussions from group meetings that needed to have been recorded, although this was not the intention of the project
