The Fattore J, project, promoted by Fondazione Mondo Digitale with Janssen Italia, is testing the first curriculum for Italian schools to educate young people to develop emotional intelligence, respect and empathy toward people who experience severe distress or are affected by illness. Thanks to the collaboration of medical specialists from the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome, the project's scientific partner, we have created some training videos to be disseminated in schools for the following therapeutic areas: hematology, immunology, pulmonary hypertension and neuroscience.
The series "I will take care of you" collects "Health Tales from the doctors of the Bio-Medical Campus of Rome."
Prof. Francesco Grigion's contribution is dedicated to pulmonary hypertension, a rare disease characterized by excessively high values of blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs (the pulmonary arteries), and is divided into two parts: in the first part the specialist describes the pathology, while in the second part he explains the importance of the therapeutic alliance.

What do patients with hematologic malignancies risk in times of pandemic? Why are they considered at high risk with the spread of Covid-19? What makes blood diseases so insidious? We delve into the topic with Professor Giuseppe Avvisati, professor of Blood Diseases at the University Campus Bio-Medico in Rome, director of the Department of Hematology and Stem Cell Transplantation and the School of Specialization in Hematology at the University Polyclinic. Professor Avvisati's contribution is divided into three video lectures: two are devoted to blood diseases, the third to doctor-patient communication.
We delve into immune-inflammatory diseases with Professor Michele Cicala, full professor of Gastroenterology at the University Campus Bio-Medico in Rome and director of the Department of Gastroenterology and School of Specialization in Digestive Diseases at the University Polyclinic. Professor Cicala's contribution is divided into two video lectures: the first is dedicated to chronic inflammatory diseases, the second to empathy in the therapeutic relationship.
