SHE´s vision is to educate globally anchored health professionals who make sustainable healthcare decisions without compromising future and global needs.
Drawing on a framework of competencies for sustainable development previously outlined by UNESCO, the aim of this center is to translate and adapt this framework for the use in health professional education.
Our basic assumption is that we by fostering these key competencies can prepare future health professionals for making sustainable evidence-based decisions on different levels of health care. SHE will develop and test educational modules and pedagogical methods, and pilot new models for evidence-based decision-making inspired by the SDGs.
The figure shows necessary competences in evidence-based decisions; collaborative, normative, strategic, systems-thinking and anticipatory.
