TaSHI final event in Budapest

TaSHI project had its final event on the 11-12 March 2024 in Budapest.

In the frames of the event TaSHI achievements were presented. 

We had very fruitful and interesting discussions about the project sustainability visions, we featured the possible ways forward. It is noted that the issue of health workforce challenges is an important topic on the European policy agenda, and based on this we believe that the outputs of TaSHI will have a continuation in new health workforce related projects.

TaSHI workshop in Estonia

In March 2023, TaSHI piloted learning material from the task shifting curriculum with the ongoing Estonian case study.


In the two-day workshop, organized by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Estonian mental health nurses received new knowledge of the fundamentals of task shifting, discussed in groups experiences on task shifting already happening in mental healthcare and identified learning needs to implement task shifting.


Furthermore, barriers and facilitators for task shifting in mental health care were assessed. Using World café as an approach knowledge and views on professional competency, guidelines and protocols, organization of health care, management and leadership, and facilitators and barriers for taskshifting were discussed, shared, and summarized.
