The CARER+ pilot in italy continues in 2015 - The commitment of IRS towards CARER+ sustainability

 

The CARER+ pilot and the training course in Italy were very successful and had a positive impact on the carers and care recipients involved. The CARER+ training course was also greatly appreciated by the local stakeholders since it integrates the training course for carers provided by the public social welfare services allowing home care workers to enrich their competences and enhance their professionalism.
 
Besides the very positive feedback received by users and stakeholders, the Italian piliting partner, IRS, has been receiving numerous requests to maintain the access to the CARER+ training platform and contents open to old and new users after the end of the CARER+ project. To respond to these requests IRS decided to continue the experimentation of the CARER+ training programme for one year after the end date of the project: the Italian training platform will remain available to all users free of charge and will be updated with more care-related training contents contextualised at local level: an important step towards the sustainability of the CARER+ concept after the end of the funding period!
