Short about When Looks

An EU funded collaboration between Universities and NGO’s across six European countries is developing an academic programme for health professionals from a variety of specialist areas, which will provide training to enable them to identify and support patients with appearance-related issues and thus optimise patient outcomes.

European Collaboration

A consortium led by the Centre for Appearance Research in the UK with university partners in Italy, Lithuania, Sweden and Turkey, together with the European Cleft Organisation (NGO) in The Netherlands (who have collaborations with health professionals and patients in various healthcare settings) will execute an innovative project to design, test and implement a multi-modal, evidence-based course, that will be used in higher education.
