The project aims at developing new innovative pedagogies that concern the rules of World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as good practices introduced in selected European countries characterised by a relatively high quality of cause-of-death statistics. Its objective is twofold;

First, it consists of providing an innovative learning tool (CODA) for lecturers training medical students, giving them the opportunity to improve their knowledge on WHO’s recommendations and rules concerning the certification of causes of death.

Second, it creates a MOOC dedicated to trainers and professors of various universities and institutes who wish to adapt the CODA tool for their teaching purposes and share it with their students.
