Gestion de la formation continue des professionnels de santé

Logo de l'Agence Régionale de la Formation tout au long de la vie (ARFTLV Poitou-charentes)Le développement professionnel continu constitue une obligation pour les professionnels de santé. Il a pour objectifs l'évaluation des pratiques professionnelles, le perfectionnement des connaissances, l'amélioration de la qualité et de la sécurité des soins ainsi que la prise en compte des priorités de santé publique et de la maîtrise médicalisée des dépenses de santé.
La gestion des sommes affectées au développement professionnel continu est assurée, pour l'ensemble des professions de santé (médecins,chirurgiens-dentistes, pharmaciens, sages-femmes et professions paramédicales), par un GIP (l'OGDPC : organisme gestionnaire du développement professionnel continu des professions de santé) chargé de déterminer les conditions d'indemnisation des professionnels de santé libéraux et des centres de santé conventionnés participant aux actions.
Un décret n° 2011-2113 du 30 décembre 2011 précise la composition des organes de gouvernance de ce GIP ainsi que ses modalités de financement. A la demande du ministre chargé de la santé, l'OGDPC pourra passer des marchés de prestations, notamment pour répondre à des besoins spécifiques urgents de santé publique.
Outre la déclaration d'activité comme organisme de formation continue, les personnes qui souhaitent mettre en œuvre des programmes de développement professionnel continu devront déposer une demande d'enregistrement auprès de l'OGDPC accompagné d'un dossier d'évaluation. L'évaluation des organismes portera sur leur capacité pédagogique et méthodologique, les qualités et références des intervenants et sur leur indépendance financière, notamment à l'égard des entreprises fabriquant ou distribuant les produits de santé.
Cinq décrets fixent le contenu, l'organisation et le contrôle de l'obligation individuelle de développement professionnel continu des professionnels de santé paramédicaux , des chirurgiens-dentistes, des médecins, les sages-femmes  et des pharmaciens.
Les programmes de formation reconnus par l'OGDP devront être conformes à une orientation nationale ou à une orientation régionale de développement professionnel continu.
Les programmes suivis par les professionnels de santé libéraux conventionnés et les professionnels de santé exerçant dans les centres de santé conventionnés seront pris en charge dans la limite d'un forfait.
Les organismes collecteurs agréés intervenant en faveur de professionnels de santé (FAF des professions médicales, ANFH...) devront transmettre à l'OGDPC un rapport d'exécution annuel de l'effort de développement professionnel continu mis en œuvre par leurs adhérents.
Des dispositions transitoires ont été fixées pour permettre la mise en place de cette nouvelle organisation qui entrera en vigueur avant le 30 avril 2012.

VIRQUAL newsletter 6

http://virqual.up.pt/sites/default/files/fourseasons_logo.pngNetwork for integrating Virtual Mobility and European Qualification Framework in HE and CE Institutions
The project of this network proposes to help educational and training institutions to achieve Virtual Mobility and to guarantee EQF implementation through e-learning, aiming at finding specific obstacles in institutions and proposing concrete and innovative solutions. It will promote cooperation and joint work among partner organizations and will link with related initiatives. It will address other educational networks to help the dissemination of the results.
The project is organized in twelve workpackages that cover all activities of the project. The core group is composed by four subject interest groups (SIG) that address the main objectives of the network. Each SIG will research the selected themes, looking for what has been done and proposing answers for the research questions. Each SIG will also look for potential collaboration with other projects and initiatives that are working in similar areas.
Latest dissemination activities attended by the VIRQUAL consortium
VIRQUAL newsletter 6
The VIRQUAL partnership conducted a number of very successful dissemination activities at the recent S-ICT 2011 and 42th EUCEN Conferences, held respectively in Vienna and Genoa, in November. The main aspects concerning the VIRQUAL Model for virtual mobility were addressed both in the keynote and in specific workshops as well as in special panel discussions with stakeholders. Amongst others, it was addressed how the VIRQUAL model and guides contribute to help learners, institutions, companies and governments dealing with different scenarios of higher and continuous education organization and legislation implement student mobility at a large scale across Europe.
The debates concerning the ‘Institutional’, ´Teacher´ and ´Learner´ versions of the VIRQUAL guides were attended by several experts, teachers and learners who had the chance to have an in-depth look at the document and analyze the relevance of these tools in order to provide institutions with the capacity to improve transparency and facilitate virtual mobility. Participants concluded that this guide covers of the most significant aspects that arise when institutions deal with issues of student’s mobility. In this sense, they’ve all felt the VIRQUAL Model and Guide will indeed help institutions and teachers design new programmes and courses in a more friendly way to foster of virtual mobility across the old continent. Besides this, institutional representatives also remarked issues related with inter-institutional agreements (e.g., accreditation, validation and transparency) and are confirmed that those are some problems in implementing virtual mobility more widely. The same observations were made by participants in the Genoa Conference. It should be underpinned however, that participants at these roundtables all mentioned how decisive institutional commitment is for assuring the quality of the learning process, thus also assuring the credibility of the virtual mobility process. Tools supporting virtual mobility exist and it is just a question of applying the proper methods and procedures to facilitate mobility.

France: New circular to clarify foreign student rules

http://www.universityworldnews.com/layout/UW/images/logoUWorld.gifBy Jane Marshall. Interior Minister Claude Guéant is to issue a new circular next week specifically to cover employment of highly qualified foreign students. The move follows criticism from academics, employers, students and politicians over tightened restrictions on professional immigration that led to many non-European Union graduates being refused permission to stay and work in France.
After a meeting on Wednesday with higher education leaders, ministers announced that the police authorities responsible for dealing with visa and work permit applications would next week receive the new circular giving directions applicable to the specific situation of foreign graduates with at least a masters degree who wanted to acquire their first professional experience in France.
But student, educational and anti-racism representatives rejected the ministers' latest proposals, and promised to continue their opposition until the restrictions were withdrawn.
A previous circular published jointly by the ministries of the interior and of employment on 31 May 2011 required administrative authorities to treat applications for work permits, especially those from students, more rigorously. Guéant, its principal proponent, insisted that the circular merely repeated existing laws on the rights of foreigners to work in France.
But the three bodies representing presidents of universities (CPU), grandes écoles (CGE) and engineering schools (CDEFI), as well as employers' organisations, expressed anxieties when thousands of foreigners who had studied in France - and who would previously have been hired by French companies keen to use their employees' 'double culture' and language skills for their international activities - were refused residence and work permits.
Students' and lecturers' unions demanded withdrawal of the circular, and employers called for flexibility in its application.
Laurent Wauquiez, minister for higher education and research, and his predecessor Valérie Pécresse, stressed the government's wish to attract talented foreign students to educate a future international elite.
Prime Minister François Fillon wrote to the CPU, CGE, CDEFI and the employers' Association Française des Entreprises Privées in November, assuring them that France was "extremely attached" to its tradition of educating foreign students and that he had ordered a reexamination of some cases where graduates had been refused residence permits.
But in spite of his intervention La Tribune reported just before Christmas that the police authorities responsible for authorising visa and work permit applications were still zealously applying the restrictive circular.
Opposition and criticism continued. Medef, the employers' federation, described as "suicidal, these contradictory injunctions", and said that "France must remain an open and attractive country", reported La Tribune.
Students stepped up their demands for cancellation of the circular, and a petition was set up by a group of academics and intellectuals, including Nobel prize-winning physician Albert Fert, who condemned it as "morally inadmissible, politically dangerous and economically absurd".
Wauquiez said: "I don't want the French university to close its doors to foreign students, I find that ridiculous. We got it wrong, and we must say so clearly, about a circular which has given this impression, this image to the outside world."
Minister of Culture Fréderic Mitterrand said that, having spent his time welcoming foreigners, "this circular presents me with a problem".
Charles Givadinovitch, national secretary of the ruling UMP party in charge of insecurity and poverty, called on Guéant to annul the circular and condemned the "ridiculous situation where students and active young people educated in the French system in our universities and grandes écoles find themselves refused a work visa".
He also expressed anxiety at the "tarnished image of our country throughout the world caused by the effects of this circular. Many qualified students are questioning whether to come to study in France...So much for the [attractiveness] of our education system".
Faced with mounting academic and public opposition and growing disquiet within the government, on 23 December Guéant announced that he would publish a new circular on employment of foreign students, which would "supplement" the previous one and clear up misunderstandings.
On Wednesday Guéant, Wauquiez and Employment

In a joint statement following the meeting, the ministers said that to clear up any misunderstanding the police authorities would next week receive the complementary circular giving the directions applicable to the specific situation of highly qualified foreign graduates with at least a masters, who wished to acquire first professional experience in France.
The new circular would ask the police authorities to ensure the necessary control of professional immigration would not be to the detriment of the attractiveness of the higher education system, nor the needs of some companies for specific high-level skills. It would spell out that deep knowledge of a foreign country or culture could constitute a sought-after skill, for example when competing in a new market, said the statement.
But in response the student association Conféderation étudiante, unions SGEN-CFDT and UNSA Education, and SOS Racisme rejected the ministers' proposals. In a joint statement they said the ministers were continuing in their "discriminatory logic" and that the revision only clarified the existing circular. Their opposition would continue.
"Only the withdrawal, pure and simple, of the two measures penalising higher education, innovation and the French economy could satisfy us," they said.
The order to the police authorities concerned only 'high potential' students, and this was unacceptable because it reinforced discrimination between students, said the unions' statement.
