Students Exchange in project "Adipositas" in Novo mesto

   During 19 – 20 October 2017 School Centre Novo mesto, the Secondary Medical School, organised the first conference in the project "Adipositas". We hosted students and teachers from School for Nurses Mlinarska, Physiotherapeutic and Pharmaceutical School Belgrade and XI. High School Zagreb. We connected with Medical School Šibenik via videoconference. After a brief reception, we were greeted by Ms Damjana Papež, the headmistress, who presented the School Centre and Secondary Medical and Chemical School. The conference program took us to Health Centre Novo mesto, where we went on foot since the objective of our project is taking care of our health. There we were greeted by Ms Alenka Piškur, the assistant director for nursing, and Ms Petra Žagar, a graduate nurse employed in Health Education Centre.
   In the Health Centre lecture room they first welcomed us and then presented the primary work of the Health Centre and introduced the Health Education Centre work program. Since our area of interest is obesity detection, we asked for detailed explanations on contents connected with the subject. Within Health Centre Education they offer the-so-called slimming school which lasts for 12 weeks. The patient comes with their GP’s referral, enters the physical exercise program involving a physiotherapist and the program of monitoring individual’s eating habits, where their weight is monitored weekly and where they learn about healthy diet and healthy lifestyle. We tested ourselves on the weighing scales for measuring bodily structure, namely we measured our muscle mass, portion of fat and water in our body.
   After the walk back to school, we attended classes. First, Ms Katja Hrovat introduced the school program for pharmacists, Ms Vika Kobola and Mr Uroš Ocepek presented the school work in specialised pharmaceutical classrooms. The guests form School for Nurses Mlinarska attended classes of childcare with Ms Marinka Cerovšek, Ms Gloria Šepec introduced Basic professional knowledge of nursing, the class with Ms Tanja Kulovec, students of assistant nurse program, were making a bag for their work uniform. After lunch we continued work on the project where we presented the already done work on the topic of what obesity is, what its causes are and what the effects on healthy people. We agreed on the work for the oncoming months. We are going to conduct a survey with the first and final years students, calculate ITM from sports charts, prepare prevention material and prepare presentations for schools on healthy lifestyle.After the active part of the meeting, Mr Goran Matešić took us on a guided tour of the old part of Novo mesto and then to Hostel Novak where our guests were staying.s.
   On Friday 20 October we returned full of energy to school where Ms Mirjam Bauer tested our guests on the 2-kilometre-walk test which tells us our physical condition and the capacity of our cardiovascular system. We measured the oxygen level in our blood and our heart rate. We all together attended classes of the pharmaceutical program. Mr Matej Pegam presented the operation of medications, Ms Vika Kobola and Ms Majda Jožef presented titration and with Ms Marica Kralj we learned about the process of making a cream or ointment. The final analysis showed that we spent two nice work days and made the final agreement on the proceeding work in the forthcoming months. We finished this exchanged with lunch and a concluding thought.
   We are all looking forward to our upcoming meeting on "Days of E-medica 2018." in Terme Tuhelj Spa in March and a possible meeting in Belgrade in January 2018.
