Transnational Meeting: November 2021
Háskóli Íslands / University of Iceland (Iceland)
The REVAMP team met for a two-day transnational meeting on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th November 2021.
This was the first opportunity since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic for the team to meet in person. Each partner organization was represented at the meeting with a total of 14 team members attending and a further 4 members joining virtually.
Aims of the meeting:
- – Review the overall progress of the project. Present progress of intellectual outputs.
- – Identify strategies and action points to ensure timely completion of the project.
- – Review quality committee documents and process
- – Promote team engagement, cohesiveness and cultural awareness through acculturation activities.
The overall progress of the project has been delayed largely due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on team members’ workloads as they are all healthcare practitioners. We have implemented several strategies to ameliorate this delay. These include, but are not limited to, a renewed Gantt chart, clear short term objectives, newly appointed e-learning and website developers, re-organization of transnational meetings to provide regular in person meetings and access to support services (such as audio-visual expertise). The benefits of meeting physically compared to a virtual meeting have been identified:
