Due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 crisis we decided to cancel the workshop 7/8 September 2020 in Budapest and instead deliver the Teach-the-Teachers workshop ‘Complex Intercultural Communication’ in a different format:
- - In 6 online modules of 60-90 minutes, monthly from January
- – June 2021, different topics will be addressed.
- - Followed by a face-to-face workshop combined with the final conference of the project (27/28 of August 2021) if possible concerning COVID-19 regulations.

Teach-the-teacher workshop: ‘Complex intercultural communication’
About 5% of the European population report symptoms for which the doctor cannot find a medical cause that sufficiently explains their symptoms, even after adequate medical examinations. These Medically Unexplained Symptoms (MUS) represent 20-40% of the caseload of doctors and are one of the most expensive diagnostic categories in Europe.
