In this first phase of the project, four autonomy of the elderly experts of four different fields of study (psychology, medicine, law and nursing) will be teaching at these professional associations. Each trainer will give a two-and-a-half-hour session in each of the professional colleges (psychology, medicine, law and nursing).

The course is aimed at doctors, lawyers, nurses and psychologists who are interested in training or to deepen their knowledge about the concept, processes and mechanisms to guarantee the autonomy of the elderly.

Pedagogical training and professional to professional experience


In this third phase of the project professionals who have participated will transfer the knowledge learned in the previous phases of the project to the maximum number of professionals with whom they interact. For that, they will receive, first, pedagogical training on knowledge transferring. Once the fundamental techniques learned and after having adapted them to the casuistry of each centre and professional, a pilot experience will be developed. These pilot experiences will take place in, at least, three care centres for the elderly. The objective of the latter is that people having received the training carried out in phases 1 and 2 of the project will teach, as well, those workers in charge of the care of the elderly in their respective centres.
