TaSHI: empowering EU health policies on task shifting

Duration: Apr 2021 - Mar 2024

Aim
The TaSHI project aims to provide new understanding and up-to-date knowledge on task shifting and the transferability and uptake of good practices in implementation.

Objectives
The specific objectives of TaSHI are:
- To provide a novel understanding and up-to-date knowledge on task shifting and on transferability and uptake of good practices in implementation.
- To apply different methods of analyses in order to provide added value on the concept, notion, and implementation of task shifting at EU level, national level and regional level.
- To perform pilots at five implementation sites to gather evidence and data on the different types of task shifting (e.g. working time re-allocation, re-considered scope of practices in primary care, mental health care, radiology and ophthalmology, benefiting from telemedicine and digital health).
- To aims to facilitate dialogues and knowledge exchanges between the relevant stakeholders.
- To deliver a collection of good practices, useful tools and methods, a guidebook on task shifting supporting the real-life implementation, case studies on the pilots’ experiences, practical training materials and curriculum, and a set of recommendations.

Results
The TASHI project will deliver several reports, (web)publications, articles, fastheets and webtools, reporting on a collection of good practices, learning tools and methods, a guidebook on task shifting supporting the real-life implementation, case studies, practical training materials and curriculum, and recommendations for task shifting.
