SHS Education and Research Centre – University of Turku

Centre for Education and Research on Social and Health Services

Research and education to support integration of social and health care 

SHS Education and Research Centre, hosted by the University of Turku, assembles multi-disciplinary scientific expertise and social welfare and health care authorities working towards a more accessible social and health care system. We are committed to create a collaborative operational culture where evidence-based information is effectively translated into practical solutions.

Current activities

SHS Education and Research Centre is coordinating SOHE education for university students as well as for Open University. The Basics of the New Social and Health Care System (25 ECTS) is starting in October 2018.

We will be organizing Social and health care integration seminar for subcommittees or other decision-making organs in municipalities in the area of hospital district of Southwest Finland, Satakunta and Vaasa twice a year. The seminar is held to determine what kind of information do users and beneficiaries need and to ensure the utilization of the developed data.
