Towards a European Model - ENG

Description: [ENGLISH VERSION - Other versions in Italian, German, Arabic, Spanish, Flemish and French are available]. What is presented in this document is not a finished European model of Home and Hospital Education (HHE) for children and youngsters with medical needs, as the HHE situation, as well as education in general, is too complex and diverse across all the European countries. However, what the LeHo project achieved was to identify important building blocks and a number of relationships between them to create a model, on the basis of which important recommendations can be formulated for policy makers and professionals at various levels.
Notes: The word “model” is often used to mean different things. It can refer to a representation of a reality, to a blueprint for building a reality, or to an ideal example (e.g. role model). In the context of this document the scientific meaning of model is used, i.e., a concept that, after analysis of a complex reality, describes this reality in its essential components and its interrelations. Such a model can then be used as a reference to evaluate the quality of concrete instances, to detect missing components and/or relationships and to provide recommendations for change.
