H-Com project to increase patient safety

The H-Com project has been created to build and strengthen solid communication skills of health professionals (with a specific focus on medical doctors and nurses), so as to improve patient professional relations as well as inter-disciplinary communication. The long term goal is to create a comprehensive learning tool for the improvement of skills and competencies of health professionals in communication, and ultimately improve health outcomes among EU patients.


Effective communication has been found to be crucial for the overall functioning of the European healthcare system, having a positive impact on readmission rates, adherence to treatment and even cost related impacts.
