EducAge – Improving competences of older people caregivers towards healthy ageing through digital transformation
The Semmelweis University is participating in a European project to be developed for informal carers of older people. The main objective of the EducAGE project is to promote active and healthy ageing through training of caregivers with experts from Portugal, Spain, Czech Republic and Hungary. This initiative is funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union.
The target group of the project is informal caregivers over 65 years old and the EducAge consortium is developing a 32.5 hour interactive training course that will be delivered in a hybrid online and face-to-face version. It will provide content through digital tools that will cover activities that stimulate the physical and cognitive abilities of the elderlies and will provide training on comprehensive care and prevention of geriatric syndromes. In order to promote learning, a mobile application will be developed based on the principles of mobile learning, with multimedia content designed to facilitate micro-learning: tips, short messages, curiosities and simple interactive activities to support active aging. Interactive sessions will be organized to exchange experiences with European experts in the field of health and gerontology.
From Semmelweis University, the colleagues of Institute of Mental Health, and the Department of Surgical Research and Techniques participate in the international consortia, together with the following European institutions:
- Polytechnic Institute of Guarda, Guarda, Portugal
