Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019 Aug 21;264:1964-1965. doi: 10.3233/SHTI190736.


Montenegro plans to enhance and modernize the curricula and programs in public health fields in line with EU standards and hence the Erasmus-Phelim project developed a framework to develop, implement, and evaluate the education process. A stepwise approach consisting of three dimensions per step was implemented for workshop development. For the evaluation, a train-the-trainer approach was developed and a self-regulation concept consisting of three phases was applied. Semi-structured interviews with the workshop participants were conducted and results suggested that self-regulation is an understandable concept and can be applied as a training and knowledge transfer method.
