Psychosomatic Medicine and Psycho-Oncology Alliance is the result of more than a decade of joint scientific activity between the Department of Psychosomatic and Psychotherapy of the University of Freiburg, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and the Institute of Danesh-e-Tandorosti. Holding 5 international conferences, various training courses in Iran and Germany in the form of summer schools, post-doctoral psychosomatic courses with a joint degree between Iran and Germany and the approval of three training projects with the German Academic Exchange Institute (DAAD) are the most important achievements of this alliance.
The latest project approved by DAAD was to develop a Psycho-Oncologic educational curriculum in Iran that continues from 2019 to 2022 and was approved in collaboration with Ala Cancer Prevention and Control Center (Macsa), which is the largest NGO active in the field of supportive and palliative care in Iran.
The first step was “International Conference and Symposium on Psycho-Oncology” which held on 7-9th July 2019 in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. The second step is “International Short-term Psycho-oncology Course” which is steel ongoing. Due to pandemic conditions, it was not possible to hold classes in person. However, the organizers did not give up and launched this course with the presence of more than twenty participants and several international instructors by utilizing an online platform and using new virtual methods.Read more about Iran and Germany Hold an International Short-term Psycho-Oncology Course
From December 2019, when the outbreak of a new Corona Virus was first identified in Wuhan, China, until March 2020, when the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic, COVID-19 required less than 4 months to rush the world and occupy human being. Millions of people are still suffering from this disease or are involved with it.
During these months the caregivers, including physicians, nurses and other staff have shouldered so much mental and physical burdens, whereas they were supposed to serve the patients and there was no effort to support themselves. Unfortunately, national health services have not care enough to support their personals, especially for psychosocial issues and among developing countries.
Healer Healing is an international online program aimed at finding a way to reduce healer’s distress; improving empathy, compassion and relational skills; focusing on mental health, especially avoiding Major Depressive Disorder and suicide; improving decision making and reasoning skills and prioritizing emphasis on communication capabilities over medical techniques; planning for a long-term schedule to come in the face of possible future other crises; providing more options for receiving psychosocial services; using online services instead of limited local ones; benefiting from more and more capable professionals; and improving self-care skills.
Currently, a specialized team is working on the content and structure of this project and, to be more precise, its infrastructure. Several focus group sessions have been held with the aim of need assessment with the participation of international experts, and it is hoped that this program will be able to start working in the spring of 2021.Read more about Healer Healing: an Innovative and Responsible International Program
