As part of the funding programme of the German Academic Exchange Service "PAGEL Partnerships for the Health Sector in Developing Countries", the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences obtained funding for the project: "Manual Therapy in Cuba under Intercultural Aspects".
Manual therapy (MT) as a sub-discipline of physiotherapy is defined as "diagnostics and therapy of reversible functional disorders of the support and movement system" and is used profitably by doctors as well as physiotherapists for patients after appropriate specific further training. The proposed project is a subject-related cooperation project of the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences with the Universidad de Ciencias de Santiago de Cuba in Santiago de Cuba, the La Pradera Clinic and "Commercializadora de Servicios Médicos Cubanos, S.A.". (SMC S.A.) in Havana, which will run for a period of four years and aims to implement MT in the Cuban health system in order to expand the high-quality medical care for patients with neuromusculoskeletal problems on site, which is oriented towards international standards, by a highly effective form of diagnosis and therapy.
Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences supports projects to promote international cooperation with versatile colleges/universities. In this context, a first project between Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and Curtin University took place in June 2021 under the direction of Prof. Dr. Ballenberger, Prof (in Verw.) Dr. Möller and Prof. Dr. Brigitte Tampin. Six students from each university took part. The students worked together on patient case studies and had the opportunity to exchange their experiences in the field of physiotherapy and the German and Australian health care systems.
