Featured reviews
I love that Sue engages with the listener in this course and promotes reflection with adequate and concrete questions. She provides a real situational setting, and I appreciated her insights and truthfulness. Super well done and well-put-together course, extremely relevant for anybody thinking of working in disaster and conflict or with displaced persons but also in hopefully a more and more common work environment geared towards patient-centred teamwork.

This course allowed me to know the three main types of rehabilitation teams. This knowledge will help me better situate my management style internally and with the many external actors involved in rehabilitation. You will especially appreciate the intelligently formulated questionnaire to help you better understand the course. Good luck to all in the constant search for the diversified knowledge offered by this magnificent platform.
