The course aims to bring the students to reflect sociologically on the concepts of work and organizational processes with particular attention to the healthcare field, trying to understand the nature, characteristics and relationships with the current social context in order to improve their action as rehabilitation professional in a context of complexity. The course aims to promote understanding of organizational processes in relation to the latest transformations, characteristics, risks and challenges of the current social context within which complex organizations are moving. For this, students will first provide the tools to reflect both on the variables that make up an organization and organizational models; so you will have some insight into some organizational processes characterizing the rehabilitative intervention and related dynamics, with particular attention to organizational change, work organization and multi-ethnicity. The aim of the course is to offer students a sort of "toolbox" to address today's complexity, reflecting on their professional activity, broadening their perspective, developing their own judgment, communication and relationship skills with the patient both in the organizational context. At the end of the course, the expected learning outcomes are related to two areas: A) KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING 1. of the sociological aspects characterizing the relationship between complexity and the health system 2. of the processes of change of work from the point of view of the different actors involved and their relations with the more general context; 3. of the processes characterizing the organizations with particular reference to those of differentiation and integration; 4. cultural and communicative processes as fundamental in the relationship between organizations and complexity. B) CAPACITY 1. to apply the knowledge learned in order to identify and describe the organizations in relation to the current context; 2. to analyze and understand the organizational processes, especially the cultural and communicative ones and their dynamics; 3. to recognize, observing with different points of view, the processes and languages that characterize the work environment in relation to the diversity that characterizes them, in order to promote positive and virtuous relationships within the organization and in relations with the outside world; 4. to use the concepts learned as a sort of "toolbox" to deal with today's complexity, reflecting on one's professional action, widening one's point of view, developing one's own judgment, communication and relationship skills both with the patient both with the organizational context.
