INSTrUCT incorporates innovative pedagogies and methods that support students and educators in the teaching-learning process. It is composed of open digital learning content:
This can be easily introduced into university curricula in Degrees in Health Sciences (medicine, nursing, pharmacy, etc.).
To complete the OER, it is recommended that students dedicate between 25 and 30 hours, of which 5 will be for reading the theoretical content and viewing videos, 1-2 hours for the virtual simulation, 15 -27 hours for personal study and 2 hours for evaluation.
Module 1: Tobacco as a public health problem.
Module 2: General concepts, tobacco products and assessment of use.
Module 3: Tobacco use management in healthcare settings.
Module 4: Brief intervention.
Module 5: Psychological and pharmacological treatment.
INSTrUCT aims to be a useful resource available to all Health Science Degrees across Europe, and it tackles tobacco consumption by introducing it as multi-disciplinary educational content required for healthcare professions before graduation.
INSTrUCT involves eight leading tobacco control educational and research organizations from Spain, the UK, Belgium, and Portugal. This Strategic Partnership brings together:
If you want to implement this course in your own institution, the access to all the INSTrUCT project materials can be freely requested. Those materials include the INSTrUCT course in SCORM format, the videos and flowcharts to implement the virtual simulation, and the guidelines for the evaluation.
There are also the instructions, technical specifications, and implementation examples of the materials.
