The second meeting of the EU Erasmus+ funded project “Act Now” was completed at the University of Neapolis in Pafos, Cyprus, on 29 March 2019.
The partners from Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Romania and Slovenia presented the National Analyses and the results of their Surveys. The national surveys were conducted based on a questionnaire developed by the partners from the UK, investigating the need for training health professionals to address patients with disfigurement in each partner country. Furthermore, the partners from the UK presented the theoretical paper on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for patients with visible differences. Sweden presented issues relevant with the socially disadvantaged groups.
The partners discussed the training’s target groups, the development and installation of the Website that will remain in place for five years after the end of the project.
The next meeting, a two-day meeting, will be hosted in Ljubljana on 30-31 August 2019.
