This work has been made possible by the effort and collaboration of all LeHo participating members, their staff and their institutions. For a complete list please see the LeHo website ( These people and institutions were invaluable in organizing, conducting and documenting the Focus Groups. Throughout Europe and Egypt, hundreds of teachers and members of the medical community have given their time to take part in the Focus Groups. Without their dedication and collaboration this work would have not been possible. We would like to thank all members of the Focus Group coding team, i.e., Jarmila Adamolve, Gabriella Pernice, Gaia Baratto, but most especially Roberto Vagnetti who has continually exceeded every expectation. We would also like to think all the LeHo workgroups for organizing, conducting and documenting all the Focus Groups.
