18 September 2018: Launch of the report “Web-based mutual aid groups of informal carers: an evidence review”
This report, which gives an insight of the state of play regarding this promising though underdeveloped tool, was coordinated by the Instituto de Salud Carlos III. It constitutes the baseline of the Care4Dem project. Building on a research, it gives an insight of the state of play regarding this particular type of support, the development of which was not well documented. In particular, the report looks at the methodologies applied, and the competences and profiles of the moderators.
As such, this publication aims to emphasise a series of useful pointers for the development of an innovative model of web-based mutual aid groups for dementia carers as part of the CARE4DEM project.
Second project meeting: Madrid, 27 April 2018
The meeting was hosted by Instituto de Salud Carlos III. The discussion focused on the outcomes of the evidence review on web-based mutual aid groups conducted by ISCIII in the last months, and prepared for the upcoming work packages, i.e. the web-based mutual aid group model and implementation guide.
