The EULAR Online Course for Health Professionals is aimed at health professionals in rheumatology (HPRs, other than physicians) who play an important role in the management of rheumatic conditions: e.g. nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists.
The course consists of a total of eight modules, four disease-specific modules (one on RA, one on OA, one on Fibromyalgia and one on regional musculoskeletal pain syndromes) and 4 generic modules (assessment and evaluation; interventions; psychosocial approaches and evidence-based practice). Care is given to integrate the multi disciplinary perspective of the treatment of rheumatic diseases.
The duration of the course is approx. nine months with a free of charge extension of a second year if the modules are not completed or the exam not passed. A final examination is offered once a year at a set day and time frame (advised well in time) and a EULAR certificate is issued upon passing the exam.
The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.
The EULAR online course for HPRs was granted credits in the Netherlands by the accreditation committees of the following health professional disciplines: Physical Therapists (60 credits), Nurses (64 credits), Nurse Practitioners (50 credits) and Occupational Therapists, Exercise Therapists and Podiatrists (40 credits).
Endorsed by Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy (KNGF) for 3 years
The online course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidised by EULAR, so that the entire course can be offered at the lowest price possible.
Module structure and final exam
Each online module deals with one particular topic and contains:
The final examination will assess a sample of the learning outcomes from the whole course (45 questions) within 45 minutes. The examination is run annually at a given date and time period of which learners are notified well in advance. Learners should keep in mind that this course is a 1 years course with an additional year added automatically free of charge only if required. The exam can be failed once.
