Nursing shortage in the spotlight

work-o-witch and 3s invite to a film screening to discuss the role of film in the professional training of nursing staff and as a medium for addressing the staff shortage.

The shortage of health care staff does not come as a surprise, but recent reports on the closure of entire hospital depart­ments due to staff shortages make it clear how drastic the situation already is in many places, also in Austria. At a screening event on 10 November at the Arthouse cinema of the mdw Vienna, the topic will be examined from an unusual angle by asking how the medium of film between career guidance and enter­tain­ment can influence interest in nursing training.

The screening is the kick-off to a workshop the following day and a series of events on the theme of “Careers, Work and Education in Film”. The evening begins with a series of histo­ri­cal edu­ca­tio­nal and voca­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on films. Afterwards, Konrad Wakolbinger talks with Axel Stummer, director of career infor­ma­ti­on films and graduate of the Film Academy, about his film “Beruf Helfen”. This is followed by the main film “Zu jeder Zeit” (De chaque instant, FR 2018) by Nicolas Philibert.

Thursday, 10 November 2022, 6 p.m. (main film 8 p.m.)

Arthouse-Kino im Future Art Lab, mdw – Universität für Musik und dar­stel­len­de Kunst, Wien
