    Are you not quite sure or do you still have a pressing question?

    PLATO is Leiden University’s Platform Opleiding, Onderwijs en Organisatie (Platform for Training, Education and Organisation). At the request of health insurance providers and together with umbrella organisations in the complementary care sector, PLATO has defined attainment targets for basic medical and psychosocial knowledge.

    PLATO has developed a series of attainment targets for psychosocial and basic medical knowledge. This was done at the request of five health insurance providers. Existing concepts from umbrella organisations in the complementary care sector were used as input for these attainment targets. The attainment targets have to do with the cognitive foundation needed to develop (through training and education) one’s ability to assess whether a person is (not) okay and to learn the limits of one’s own expertise. The attainment targets that PLATO has defined concern the substantive knowledge that must be covered and the level at which said knowledge must be mastered. Merely possessing the cognitive foundation is not enough to guarantee one’s ability to properly assess other people’s condition. Additional requirements therefore apply. These additional requirements are defined by the health insurance providers and umbrella organisations.

    Contrary to what was reported in the media, PLATO has not developed any training requirements and PLATO does not offer its own educational programmes in the field of basic medical and psychosocial knowledge. 

    *** Update 15-10-2019 *** In 2018, the attainment targets for the Western Medicine Fundamentals and Basic Psychosocial Knowledge programmes were modified for care providers working in the complementary care sector. This concerns a reassessment of the attainment targets from 2013.  Click here to download the document.
