The second part of a training course (online seminar)
“Nursing theories and research on patients with complex and long-term health needs”
organized by Åbo Akademi University in Finland and Astana Medical University in Kazakhstan has been successfully completed! Thank you all for collaboration!!!
The participants were altogether 25PhD and Master´s students in nursing science and university teachers in nursing science from altogether seven universities at Kazakhstan.
Here a glimpse to the seminar:
On a self-assessment scale from 0 to 10 the participants evaluated their knowledge about the central topics of the course:
- principles of person-centered care: mean 9,2 (before the course 6,9)
- nursing theories for complex and/or long-term conditions: mean 9,0 (before the course 6)
- research about advanced nursing for patients with complex and/or long-term health needs: mean 9,4 (before the course 6,2)

- person-centered guidance and coaching in context of complex/long-term conditions from a caring perspective: mean 9 (before the course 5,4)
Here some participants´ reflections about their learning outcomes:
During the today’s seminar I have learned the research design can be focused according to phases of illness trajectory. Also, we can identify the variety of symptom/clusters experience based on determinants of health. I also found out the nurses’ role in these activities.
I have learned how to use nursing theory in development of research questions for a studyor within it (for instance –in development of interview questions), and the use of PREMs and PROMs!
