The Coimbra Nursing School leads a European project that aims to prepare future nurses to intervene in complex multicultural contexts, specifically with migrants and refugees, announced the school.

Called “MulticulturalCare - Educating students through innovative learning methods to intervene in multicultural complex contexts”, the project is supported by the European Commission, through Erasmus +, which represents an investment of €312,000.

According to Lusa News Agency, a professor of the university, Ana Paula Monteiro, said: “the aim is to train health professional to provide a health care approach adequate to the needs of migrants and refugees”.


The article doesn't distinguish between immigrants, and I'm sure the school won't either. They will gladly except the french speaking immigrants fleeing their native countries like France and Belgium. Of course, much more patience and understanding will be needed, because these immigrants don't like to fit in.

All foreigners who legally come to work/live in Portugal are migrants or immigrants, or foreign residents. I am one of them. We should appreciate the fact that we often find a common language with health professionals, even if it isn't our own mother tongue. In turn, we should learn Portuguese if living here long-term.

The refugee problem is not going to go away. From time to time all EU countries take in a quota of refugees. Some of them may have specific physical and mental health issues. It makes sense to train personnel to deal with them.

Epargnez de l'argent, fermez cette école qui ne va nourrir qu'un trafic de migrants d'Afrique qui va augmenter les agressions, vols et viols au Portugal.
Protégez les portugais de ces invasions barbares.Regardez ce qui se passe en France...c'est catastrophique.Vous voulez faire du bien et c'est juste le contraire qui se passe...
