The project aims to establish measures and offers to strengthen interprofessional and intercultural competences in medicine, nursing and social service at an institutional level. IPIKAplus builds on the project "IPIKA - Development and Testing of Continuing Education Programs for Interprofessional and Intercultural Competence" in cooperation with the Charité and the ASH Berlin and was funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation in 2016-2017. In the project IPIKAplus the Charité again cooperates with the ASH Berlin and with the Charité Health Academy. IPIKAplus focuses on three structured measures that are to be tested, evaluated and sustainably established.

1.) 5 two-day training courses, which will be included in the regular training program of the Charité Health Academy 2018 and 2019, and will then be continuously embedded in their training program.

2.) Development of a "train-the trainer" curriculum for multipliers, lecturers and the coordinators of intercultural competence appointed by the Charité Nursing Directorate.

3.) An extra-occupational certificate course for interprofessional and intercultural competences will be developed in cooperation with the ASH Berlin. It will be offered to professionals from all health profession backgrounds, including social work and will be included in the program of the ASH Berlin Center for Continuing Education in the winter semester of 20219.
