Project description

This project aims at a broad dissemination of the MATCHeN-database by means of a comprehensive communication campaign and by means of workshops. The database, which has been developed within the MATCHeN-project, supports health workers in their communication with non-Dutch-speaking clients by offering information in a multilingual way in more than 100 languages and for different themes (COVID-19, potty training, medication, sexual health). The workshops that will be organised in this project, aim at getting the health care sector acquainted with the MATCHeN database. In addition, they aim to guarantee that health care workers learn to input information themselves, which safeguards the continuity of the database.
