Health care visitor nurses are professionals working in primary care, performing public health and education related tasks. They are present from the post-natal period till school leaving age in children’s lives. As the name stipulates, they visit family homes, schools and communal places. They not only monitor the biological development of children, but advise parents how to keep on the right track. Currently, there are 5300 health care visitor nurses working in Hungary, out of whom 4005 allocated to respective service districts and 1007 to schools.

In most disadvantageous areas they work alone without guidance, support or technical supervision. In extreme cases, they even undertake confrontation in conflicts without any help. The latter particularly stands for visitor nurses working in extremely depressed areas. In addition, they also have to carry the burden of administrating their own work, causing further difficulties. The equipment they can use, are predominantly outdated, and they are short of efficient IT tools.

Objectives and activities of the project

  • Providing up-to-date IT equipment to visitor nurses, who work with inadequate ones.
  • Setting up a Contact Centre, which will keep operating on the long run even after the closure of project, to provide continual - methodological, IT and knowledge-based - support to their work.
  • Production of illustrated education materials for the illiterate of functionally illiterate to assist the visitor nurses in preforming their tasks more efficiently.
  • Production of audiovisual education materials.
  • Regional „Good practices” competition in three counties of north-eastern Hungary involving local authorities and civil society organisations to facilitate cooperation and partnership. Winners will be assisted to disseminate their own good practices nation-wide, and asked to be key-note speakers at the closing conference event of the project.
  • Pilot health club in a pre-selected village, Farkaslyuk, in norther Hungary to host educational interactive programmes on health conscience way of life with the local Roma population being the target beneficiary group. The club builds on the active involvement and participation of the local community, and ideally will serve as a model for other settlements.
  • Survey on health conscienceness of Roma women in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County (northern Hungary) with special focus on the barriers of their participation in public health screenings.
  • Organising complementary supervision, individual coaching, group training and discussion in the three aforementioned counties, primarily to prevent burnout and help reducing work-related stress, to strengthen and develop personal competences.

This project was the first attempt to build up a comprehensive model which might serve as a basis for future mental health promotion strategies and programmes in Hungary. As part of that, in order to establish a common knowledge base both for professionals and the general public, and for the purpose of evaluating and conjoining the available workforce, a national methodology has been developed; additionally, the feasibility of local implementation models has been evaluated, through measuring the effectiveness of building knowledge, attitudes and networking, within the framework of launching novel Mental Health Promotion Centres (MHPCs) in pre-existing Health Promotion Offices (HPOs), in six micro-regions which are very dissimilar in terms of social and economic measures. Besides studying local models, sectoral and intersectoral policy recommendations have been elaborated, in order to present mental health promotion in all national policies, with the following results:

- Pilot Mental Health Promotion Centres in 6 micro-regions, employing 12 team members in total;
- 1  Methodological Centre with national scope;
- 10 thematic workgroups with more than 70 contributing experts;
- 186 networking stakeholders in the 6 micro-regions in total;
- 31 network building events nationally;

E-health based innovations in pathology to promote early diagnosis of cancer - Exchange of experience and developing strategy plan and competence development programs to implement digital pathology in consultation practice and intraoperative pathology telediagnostics

Permanent shortage of specialists in pathology and an ever increasing need for more and more detailed pathology reports of tissue samples in possibly short turnaround times calls for new techniques such as digital pathology to best organize professional competence on a nationwide level. Digital pathology networking may help remote access to specialized knowledge by means of teleconsultation and also support the efficiency of quality initiatives in the pre-analtical, analitical and interpretational activities. The newly planned competence development for histotechnicians to participate in intraoperative pathology telediagnostics may open new dimensions in rapid on-site pathodiagnostics. Both pathology networking and intraoperative pathology telediagnostics are expected to significantly enhance effectiveness of cancer patient care.

Childhood obesity is a major public health issue. The prevalence of obesity increased 1.1% from 2010 to 2016 among 7-year-old children in Hungary. In contrast, proportion of obese children is stable in Norway. Childhood obesity is a particular challenge for health systems with limited resources. Approximately 7% of national health budgets are spent on diseases linked to obesity each year in the EU. In order to prevent childhood obesity, effective, comprehensive and accessible interventions are required. At the decision-making level, it is necessary to limit the nutritional risk factors that contribute to childhood overweight and obesity (e.g. support regular fruit and vegetable consumption). In order to support these interventions, their effectiveness must be evaluated from time to time. The effects of school fruit program on childhood obesity have not yet been examined in Hungary. In a current project, the Norwegian National Institute of Public Health is seeking to find out the school fruit program effect on children’s nutritional status. 
Activities planned under the bilateral contract: 4 dietitians/nutritionists make a study trip to Norway. During their visit the specialists familiarize themselves with the work of the Norwegian National Institute of Public Health and receive information on the interventions in the field of nutritional health. At an event organized by the host country the dietitians present the work of the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (Országos Gyógyszerészeti és Élelmezés-egészségügyi Intézet, OGYÉI) to the Norwegian partner. The Hungarian delegation receives detailed information about the methodology of “Evaluation of free school fruit on childhood growth and obesity” in order for the OGYÉI staff to learn the evaluation method for the school fruit program to prevent obesity. Members of the Hungarian delegation undertake to pass on the acquired knowledge in Norway to the other employees of OGYÉI.

The purpose of this application is to provide a professional study visit from the University of Debrecen Faculty of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics Workgroup with the participation of the Norwegian Donor Partner and the National Healthcare Services Center between 30 August and 4 September to the University of Oslo and to an institution which deals with psychotherapeutic, pediatric psychosomatic diseases.

Our Department of Pediatrics, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics is developing. From here we would like to enrich the practical work of 10 specialists in the field of clinical child psychology. Hungarian experts could present their researches and it would be a huge possibility to compare the Norwegian and Hungarian results, as well as we can get to know the methods which are used in Norway.

Our research topics includes psychomotor development of premature babies at 2 years old in the light of chronic uterine diseases; examination of artificially inseminated children and children of abused parents; the mental health of children and their parents who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease; assessing the quality of life and adherence in the group of young people who have type 1 diabetes; finally internet and media usage in the group of asthmatic children and their parents. In this context, we are planning to carry out an international comparative study. In which we would compare the partner institution Pediatric Inventory for Parents, Strengths & Difficulties Questionnaire, Juniper’s Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire and Unicef Child Deprivation Index results with the Hungarian sample.

Experts will be able to use their experiences on workshops and we would like to continue further intercultural researches with Norwegian colleagues in connection with the above themes. Due to the results obtained – articles, publications can be produced and we plan to strength the professional relationship and co-operation.

We are fully committed to find and adopt methods and practices from abroad that can be applied in Hungary for developing the psychological conditions of children who play professional handball. We would like to study and understand how the psychological knowledge accumulated in the Norwegian healthcare system percolates and radiates to the field of sports and youth training. Our goal is to gain some insights into the sport psychological methods and practices of the Norwegian Handball Federation and the Senthallvard handball club. We are especially keen on observing how the handball club organizes the everyday operations of its adult professional team and the youth training programs and what are those paradigms it applies for mental trainings, health preservation and prevention.
The Norwegian Healthcare Directorate is responsible for providing the conditions of constant and high-quality development of the Norwegian healthcare system. It concentrate on security, efficiency, coordination, continuity and health-improvement, with prevention as a centrepiece. It would be crucial for us to understand how these conditions facilitate the improvement of children both in their physical and mental activities.
