Globalizing social and health care

Welcome to the conference on Globalizing social and health care!

The conference will take place 25.–26.4.2016 at the University of Tampere.

The conference will bring together researchers, policymakers and practitioners to discuss phenomena arising in increasingly international and multicultural social and health care work.

The aim is to create a forum for dialogue to enhance intercultural interaction and know how in social and health care.

Key note speakers from Finland, United Kingdom and Norway, including Director Jaakko Kiander (Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company), Government Counsellor Olli Sorainen (Ministry of Employment and the Economy), Director Alexander Braddell (Oxfordshire Skills Escalator Centre CIC Ltd, UK), Professor Emeritus Sverre O. Lie (University of Oslo, Norway) and Professor Pirkko Pitkänen (University of Tampere).

Key note speech 'Experiences of supporting language learning in multicultural work communities' will be held by Director Alexander Braddell due to Kerstin Sjösvärd's cancellation.

Panel discussions and workshops will provide forums for the representatives of private and public social and health care organizations, ministries, labour market organizations and research and educational organizations to discuss international recruitment practices, recognition and updating the qualifications of overseas-trained professionals, enhancing relevant language training and other issues topical for the globalizing social and health care sector.

The main working language in the conference will be Finnish. The presentations of the Scandinavian key note speakers will be in English with Finnish translation.

Conference is hosted by Researcher Tiina Vaittinen (University of Tampere) and Project Coordinator Meg Sakilayan-Latvala (Nicehearts of Vantaa).
