Carevolution

CAREVOLUTION logo_positiveThe answer to the needs of people with chronic disease, most of whom are elderly, it is a challenge for health systems. In this context, integrated care models have erupted in Europe as a new approach for care for chronicity. This new approach contemplates the change from reactive care after an adverse health event, towards a proactive and preventive care; a focus on the person and active involvement in the management of his/her disease; a community approach, with home as a care centre; and greater coordination among the different levels of health care, and among health system, social services and community.

Home care workers can play a key role in the deployment of these integrated care models, and they could deliver new higher added value tasks, which currently they can´t do. However, current professional profiles and professional qualification frameworks do not contemplate the role of home care workers in the context of integrated care models.

Thus, the Carevolution project aims to develop the competences of home care workers in Europe, in the framework of integrated home care for elderly people with chronic disease.

This project is funded by the Erasmus + program of the European Union within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practice. (Project number: 2015-1-ES01-KA202-015541).

The objectives of the Carevolution project are:

  • Identify the role of home care workers in the framework of integrated care for elderly people with chronic diseases at home.
  • Develop the professional profile of home care workers in the framework of integrated care for elderly people with chronic diseases at home.
  • Develop a new training curricula and learning materials that will respond to the training needs for the acquisition of new competences of home care workers in the framework of integrated care for elderly people with chronic diseases at home.
