Published on

On 1 December 2015, the final M-CARE conference was organised in Brussels, Belgium at VLEVA premises. The event “Caring for people with disabilities and older people: challenges, opportunities and (mobile/online) training solutions” focussed on the importance of good quality personal caregiving (PCG) for people with disabilities and older people. Focus was on caring in a broader perspective, and how M-CARE’s (mobile/online) training solutions can contribute to successful PCGs.

  6. 6. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Findings II Contents I • Different definitions for certain illnesses and disabilities on national level (e.g. Alzheimers is not a disability it‘s a form of dementia) • Imprecise definitions of certain desases

  11. 11. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Recommendations Contents I • The red line going through the modules should be adapted at certain points of the learning course (e.g. first aid module – contents should be checked according to national laws and contexts) • Creation of an appendix or glossary for professional definitions for illnesses, disabilities etc. based on international agreed definitions (e.g. WHO), Latin vocabulary • Adapting contents of modules to national standards (e.g. first aid) • Working closely together with the medical sector • Acomplimenting the theoretical learning with the opportunity of hands-on work-based learning
