The competency network for patient education in childhood and adolescence (Kompetenznetz Patientenschulung im Kindesund Jugendalter (KomPaS)) was founded in Germany in 2008 in order to merge the manifold acivities of patient education. KomPaS developed and successfully tested the modular educational program for rare/less frequent chronic diseases in childhood and adolescence (ModuS). It can also be used for frequent diseases like asthma, atopic eczema, or anaphylaxis. An additional transition model has been developed and evaluated to prepare adolescents and their parents together for transition. This model is also appropriate for all somatic chronic diseases. Within the scope of these projects, trainer education was modularized in order to find people willing to be a trainer more easily and to adequately train them. KomPaS is the platform for existing and future educational programs, for the development of patient education, and for quality control.
