Concepts of Educational Efficiency, Effectiveness and Quality ...
how to design, conduct and evaluate a good quality educational seminar in occupational health and safety

The topic of the EASOM 2018 Summer school closely relates to the role of EASOM to promote the highest standards of education and training in occupational medicine in Europe through the exchange of knowledge, skills and experience in education and training. 

We chose the example of agriculture as a high risk economy branch, employing not only permanent workers but also seasonal workers and, among them, many migrants. At this moment farmers and other agricultural workers by majority do not have access to occupational health services. This situation is often encountered across Europe and also worldwide. On the other hand, occupational medicine specialists often lack skills in organizing and evaluating educational seminars while at the same time (associations of) employers and health insurance funds ask them to provide education to the groups of workers on various topics aimed to preservation of health at work.
