Short about Face Value

Lack of adequate psychosocial training to provide suitable provision of care to families that are affected by disfigurement, unintentional marginalization and social exclusion are becoming increasing problems in some European countries. In many cases health care professionals lack the capacity to deliver appropriate psychosocial care in combination with not understanding the specific cultural stigma associated with disfigurement.

European Collaboration

A consortium of experts from across seven European countries is collaborating to develop a training resource for health care professionals.
