13 tematskih delavnic, financiranih v okviru projekta We4AHA, boste lahko spremljali med septembrom in oktobrom 2020. Potekale bodo preko spleta, udeležba pa je brezplačna. 

Spodaj vam posredujemo informacije o prvih štirih delavnicah. Pod zaporedno številko 3 je delavnica, ki jo organizira SIS EGIZ v sodelovanju s SBRA, na temo opolnomočenja starejših z naslovom Empowerment of older persons in regions

1. Co-mapping a strategy towards efficient Social Prescription for older adults in Europe 

1/10/2020 @9:30 – 11:30

Social prescribing enables GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer older adults to a range of non-clinical services, such as innovative person-centered designed digital solutions and citizens’ science life-long learning initiatives for promoting Active & Healthy Ageing and supporting older adults’ independent living. This endeavor, addressed to older adults, facing mental health problems or/and socially isolation, is designed to provide social, emotional and practical support through mental health and well-being improvement. This workshop will present person-centered approaches and ICT tools, developed in the context of H2020 EU projects, as well as different use-cases and policy status across the EU, focusing on innovative and holistic approaches to support AHA.


2. Implementing of in EIP on AHA Action Groups C2-D4 born solutions (mobile applications) to sauvegarde lives of residents in senior facilities based on example of functioning “Senior Riga” Quartier (EIP on AHA Reference site) during COVID- pandemics period 

6/10/2020 @9:30 – 11:30

The Senior Coding family of developed applications tends to serve to the residents in senior facilities security options of any European country. Currently, the developed data quality standards satisfy local requirements of Latvian legislation and are under the process of certifying digital management of standardized electronic health records in Lithuania.

Completely secured way of exchange with the applications used by other care service providers increases the interoperability and improves the smoothness of care continuum.

The application “Senior Coding”, has been already successfully applied in Senior Riga, the EIP on AHA Reference Site in Baltics. One of the main objectives of the SAFE consortium is to identify solutions for residential care providers that protect ageing people, and to scale-up these solutions. The Senior Coding family has been identified as one of these solutions, so the planned workshop will contribute to scale it up along up to 10 European countries, starting from Eastern and Central Europe.


3. Empowerment of older persons in regions

8/10/2020 @14:00 – 16:30

Empowerment aims to increase healthy lifespan by providing tools (digital and non-digital) and create more opportunities for managing the health of older adults. Empowered senior citizens enjoy higher independence, a greater control over their own lives and due prominence in decision making in their communities and in the organisations they belong to. Empowerment needs infrastructure, appliance and skills, however true empowerment also requires access to reliable and relevant health-related information as well as a connection to peers who are facing the same challenges.

Empowering older people is, without a doubt, beneficial at individual level. However, from an institutional and health and care system perspective, it is crucial. This is because chronic diseases, demographic change and unexpected pandemics put unprecedented and constant pressure on institutional health and care organisations. Innovation helps us to seek alternative care models and supporting tools that allow the discharge of the institutional health and care from long-term and non-urgent care needs. In reality, innovations (digital or non-digital) that are designed to serve older adults are often limited by regulations and resources (financial, human…).

The inspiring practices in empowering of senior citizens in various cultural environments are coming from Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Greece and Slovenia, altogether from 7 Reference Sites and from the Active Assisted Living (AAL) Programme.          


4. Frailty, falls & fractures: Assessment and management at specialised clinics/liaison services supporting older adults – what can we learn from each other?

13/10/2020 @9:30 – 12:00

Prevention and citizen-centred health services, e.g. falls clinics and fracture liaison services, will play a crucial role in meeting the future challenges of an aging population. These services could benefit from (digital) tools for citizen empowerment and person-centred care, by improving quality of screening and monitoring, adherence, feedback and evaluation. But what are the needs of the different organisations and how do we know what is worthwhile? Does the organisation of preventive activities facilitate the development, uptake and implementation of evidence-based (digital) solutions?

To improve data for advancing research, disease prevention and personalised health and care different organisations must classify, label and register in comparable manners, using standardised taxonomies and interoperable databases and devices. Which are the indicators that every organisation supporting older adults with risks of (recurrent) falls and fractures should be capable of tracking and sharing? How is this work coordinated in Europe?


5. Integrated care and platform solutions for the better provision of health and care service

20/10/2020 @10:00 – 12:00

This thematic workshop is the opportunity to discuss solutions of integrated care concepts rolled out by ICT-supported primary and secondary care interventions for older people living at home. Focus will be set onto the implementation challenges and the lessons learned from projects throughout EIP on AHA reference sites such as the Oberbergischer Kreis, the Portuguese Amadora as well as by the multi-stakeholder open platform concept rolled out in the EU-H2020 SHAPES project.


6. Tools for empowering citizens in using digital health – opportunities for individuals and communities

22/10/202 @10:00 – 12:00

In the promotion of health, individual and community empowerment plays a crucial role. The same approach relates to digital health solutions, whose promise lies in the increased access to healthcare, also in rural and remote areas. With a focus on both the individual and the community levels, we want to present practical tools developed in the EIP on AHA Reference Site Saxony, Germany, which aims to actively empower patients and communities. We will offer insights in how to empower patients in dealing with their diseases and how to empower communities to successfully implement and scale-up telemedicine. Together with participants from various other Reference Sites, we will discuss these topics further and establish how a common approach to sharing knowledge can embrace the future of digital health solutions.


7. Removing barriers for adopting telemonitoring for an inclusive, equal access, appropriate, effective, and acceptable patient-centred path of care for older patients living in low-density areas

27/10/2020 @9:00 – 11:00

The Workshop aims at facilitating knowledge acquisition (including existing Projects and adopted solutions) and at fostering collaboration and standardization of best practice, including health literacy and patients and caregivers empowerment, in order to impact on the adoption of innovative digital solutions able to boost people's health and quality of life and enable more efficient ways of organising and delivering health and care services in rural and isolated areas.


8. Research and Innovation in technology for active and healthy ageing. What's next?

12/11/2020 @9:30 – 12:00

Under this COVID-19 pandemic, new approach for independent living is required. Governments need to address the long-term sustainability of social care. COVID19 has thrown into high relief the long-standing challenges facing social care and the precariousness of a sector that has been under-valued and under-funded for too long. It has also given it prominence and a place in the public psyche which means we have the basis for addressing these challenges and building a consensus not just around funding but around the future role of social care. New model for Social Care must look beyond the actual residential care approach, fostering new models for independent living in seniors. This workshop will tackle this debate.

Please note that the registration deadline for this workshop is 1/11!
