January 14th - May 3rd 2019
From a multidisciplinary approach, this course introduces the basic aspects of urinary incontinence and its conservative treatment to understand the key aspects that can be improved by eHealth tools. After discussing existing technologies, we present the WOMEN-UP system, which is the result of an ambitious research project funded by the European Commission.
Each module has two video lessons and a test. The course is in English with subtitles in Spanish. Those students who pass all tests will receive a Statement of Accomplishment when the course closes.
The course is oriented to health professional, caregivers and students of Medicine in general, although anyone interested is welcome.
