CME Training

Comunità di Venezia is a training body accredited by the Veneto Region for Continuing Medical Education. In this context, the cooperative has applied for provisional accreditation as “CME Provider”, and is thus recognised by the Veneto Region as a Training Body that can assign training credits for Continuing Medical Education, with the aim of requesting standard accreditation.

As part of the CME training, the cooperative organises yearly internal training activities for operators and professionals working in the therapy communities it manages, on the one hand guaranteeing the CME accreditation and the acquisition of the necessary training credits for all professionals and, on the other, the possibility of training, supervision and professional updating with teachers acknowledged at a national and European level.

Some training activities are open to the public as seminaries. These attract participants from around the Venice province and the Veneto region and, in some cases, also from outside, as in the case of the public Seminar held on 12.12.2012 entitled “Recreational Drugs and Nightlife”, with a hundred taking part, including some from Piedmont, Trentino Alto Adige, and Friuli.

The document specifies the events open to the public and those reserved for the staff of Comunità di Venezia.

The events open to the public require a membership fee and participation that gives the right to acquire CME credits (for the professions of Doctor, all disciplines, Psychologist, all disciplines, Professional Educator, Nurses, Health Assistant, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Technician, Psychomotricity Technician etc.).

img chiaveCME training seminar: “Living” social ties: caring as a practice of citizenship. The training investigates the theme of living (crucial working within residential structures), correlated to the notion of citizenship and involved with the themes of social bonding, belonging and negotiation. It seems increasingly necessary to work to help return to subjectivity structurally-weak patients that are “non-inhabitants”. Since living in a place, a house, or a town, does not in itself mean living in these places, especially when the margin of habitability that structures them has not been sufficiently investigated.

Classroom training: 6 November 2015

Social services have always had a dialogue with those who struggle to find work even during periods of highest employment. The culture of protecting rights (of citizenship, work) often comes up against situations of great personal, family and contextual vulnerability that do not allow an equal redistribution of economic resources through work.

The problems of poverty and exclusion are beginning to be regarded as less topical in defining the phenomenon of social disadvantage. Disadvantageous conditions have taken on wider and different values from those historically attributed. Along with the typical economic needs, which mark the disadvantage and fragility of individuals and families, there are new needs to adapt people to the changing demands and conditions of the labour market undergoing continuous transformation. Those without these capacities have different vulnerabilities and disadvantages.

Before employability, it is therefore necessary to take care of a fragile adult who could and should be accompanied by future self-determination.

Comunità di Venezia s.c.s., in collaboration with the National Association of Professional Educators (ANEP) organized a CME-accredited training seminar to investigate these topics and open a dialogue among sector experts and operators. It took place on 1 day of attendance of 7 hours and 7 hours of e.learning with tutors and teachers (Moodle, fadAnep platform), for a total of 14 hours of training.
