The programme

Learning outcomes

Il Master si propone di formare infermieri in grado di:
• accertare con modelli di assessment avanzati i bisogni di salute e di assistenza della persona e della famiglia all’interno del loro contesto di vita e di comunità e nelle diverse fasi della vita;
• sostenere relazioni di alleanza e supporto con le famiglie in difficoltà o con problemi di salute;
• attuare interventi di promozione della salute rivolti ad individui, famiglie e gruppi, finalizzati all’adozione di stili di vita sani, alla prevenzione e diagnosi precoce;
• favorire l’aderenza ai piani terapeutici e riabilitativi e lo sviluppo di capacità di autocura nella gestione di malattie
croniche con interventi educativi e di counselling/coaching;
• attivare percorsi proattivi di presa in carico delle persone affette da malattie di lunga durata, personalizzando i PDTA;
• gestire l’assistenza infermieristica alla persona con malattia cronica nelle diverse fasi di evoluzione e traiettoria della malattia, sostenendo la sua rete parentale e di caregiving;
• sostenere i percorsi di continuità assistenziale tra interventi sanitari e sociali, tra ospedale e territorio e nell'ambito dei servizi territoriali sanitari e socio-sanitari residenziali e semiresidenziali;
• attivare collaborazioni e integrazioni con la Medicina Generale sperimentando modelli di intervento innovativi.

Professional profiles and employment and professional opportunities

Il profilo demografico della popolazione si sta progressivamente caratterizzando per un aumento delle malattie di lunga durata, associate a condizioni di fragilità e disabilità. Tale scenario richiede una risposta ai bisogni di salute della persona basata sul potenziamento dell’assistenza territoriale e domiciliare, sull’integrazione socio-sanitaria e socio-assistenziale. Questo al fine di salvaguardare lo stato di salute dei cittadini e garantire un appropriato utilizzo dei servizi sanitari, diminuendo gli accessi al pronto soccorso e le degenze ospedaliere, garantendo l’assistenza ai malati cronici che non richiedono cure intensive in ospedale. Lo scenario pandemico ha reso palese la necessità di un ripensamento dell’organizzazione dei servizi sanitari, in un’ottica di potenziamento dei servizi territoriali fortemente orientata all’assistenza di prossimità. Il D.L. 19 maggio 2020, n. 34. e il Piano Nazione di Ripresa e Resilienza (PNRR) concretizzano la volontà di promuovere sul territorio nazionale le condizioni per lo sviluppo e il potenziamento dei servizi territoriali di assistenza consolidando la figura dell’infermiere di famiglia e di comunità. Risulta pertanto necessario preparare professionisti sanitari con competenze avanzate, capaci di dare risposte proattive ai bisogni di salute, offrendo assistenza nel contesto della famiglia e della comunità, sostenendo la persona nelle scelte per la propria salute, indirizzando verso un corretto utilizzo dei servizi sanitari e garantendo la continuità assistenziale. Il Master, sulla base della nota MIUR dell’1/04/2019 (Elenco dei Master Specialistici Professioni Sanitarie), è rivolto a infermieri e si propone di sviluppare competenze specialistiche di promozione della salute, prevenzione delle malattie e di presa in carico proattiva delle persone con fragilità, malattie e disabilità a lungo termine allo scopo di fornire una risposta ai bisogni di salute e assistenza delle persone, della famiglia e della comunità nelle varie fasi della vita. Tali competenze potranno essere esercitate negli ambiti operativi della sanità pubblica in cui è necessario gestire interventi assistenziali complessi, continuativi, tempestivi e di elevata qualità. Le funzioni previste sono spendibili nell’ambito dell’assistenza territoriale, in servizi che garantiscano la continuità assistenziale e l’integrazione nella rete dei servizi sanitari.

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
